Matcha Green Tea Scones - Makes 8 Scones

Share on Social Media

1 teaspoon of Matcha green tea powder 
9 ozs. cake flour 
1 Tbsp. baking powder 
21/2 oz. butter 
1/3 tsp salt 
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar 
10 ozs. milk 
1 egg, separated into yolk and white 
raspberry or strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream to taste 

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, matcha, and sugar. Cut the butter into small pieces. With your fingertips, mix the butter into the flour until it becomes dry and flaky. Combine the milk and egg yolk, and pour the mixture into the flour a little at a time. Mix and knead into a moist dough, but not so moist that it becomes sticky. Preheat the oven to 360˚F (180˚C) Place the dough on a floured board and knead slightly until smooth. Roll out to a thickness of 1 inch (2 cm) and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass. Brush the tops with a little egg white, place on a baking sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes, until slightly brown. Cut each scone in half and eat with jam and fresh whipped cream.
