Crispy Matcha French Biscuits (Langue de Chat)

Crispy Matcha French Biscuits (Langue de Chat)

The butter and matcha aroma makes these light and crispy french biscuits the best.

Ingredients: 1 to 2 trays' worth

Butter
50 g
Sugar
50 g
Egg white
50 g
★Cake flour
40 g
★ Almond flour (or cake flour)
10 g
★ Matcha
2-3 g
Your favorite ingredients like chocolate etc.
(optional)

Steps

1. Sift together the ★ ingredients.
2. Prepare a pastry bag with a 1 cm round metal nozzle. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
3. Add butter to a bowl and soften in a microwave to the consistency of warm cream. Then mix in the sugar.
4. Beat well until it's soft and white.
5. Add egg white and continue to beat.
6. Until it looks like this.
7. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the dry ingredients you prepared in Step 1.
8. The dough is ready now. Word of caution: if you use almond flour, the dough won't smooth out completely. Please don't over-beat.
9. Place the dough in the pastry bag. It'll be easier to pipe if you only put in about a cup's worth in at a time.
10. Pip into your favorite shapes. This time I did ovals and circles. Try not to form air bubbles and distribute the dough evenly.
11. For anyone who wants to make a heart shape Pipe from the outside inwards making the same size on each side.
12. Here is a very important point! Bake for 5 minutes at 180℃, then lower the temp to 150℃ for an additional 5 minutes. Don't shorten the 150℃ baking time.
13. These baked to a nice color.
14. These are delicious as is, but I recommend sandwiching chocolate between two cookies Since they have a matcha taste, try white or matcha-flavored chocolate.
15. They're finished*. I drizzled chocolate in diagonal lines using a spoon. If you want to decorate all the cookies like this, use a pastry bag with a small cut at the tip so they all turn out beautifully.
16. These smell great and are great gift Store in a jar, etc.
17. I received a drying agent when I bought sweets from the market. I place the drying agent in a jar to make a "dehydration bottle." It's very convenient for storing cookies!
18. These were made by "Kaho," who used almond flour and cake flour. They turned out crispy.
19. I made a four-leaf clover. This is really cute.
