Matcha Cookies // Sweet Laurel

For 2 dozen sandwich cookies

2 cups almond flour

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup 100% maple syrup

1/8 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

1 teaspoon matcha (This is the matcha brand I love to use)

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour and salt. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup.  Stir until a soft dough is formed. Add matcha and stir.

Cut two pieces of parchment paper into 8 x 8 squares. Place dough between parchment paper and roll dough out with a rolling pen. Your dough should be about an 1/8 of an inch thick.  Place dough in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Cut dough into circles using a circular cookie cutter about 2-3 inches wide. Alternatively, you can use the back of a jar to shape the cookies. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and bake for about 7-8 minutes. Remove the cookies from the pan and allow to cool. Prepare frosting.

To Prepare Frosting:

1/4 cup coconut butter

2 teaspoons 100% maple syrup or honey

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup coconut milk

1 teaspoon matcha

Mix all ingredients except matcha over very low heat.  Color with matcha.  Allow to cool

To sandwich cookies:

Spread matcha icing evenly on top of a cookie, and top with another cookie. Repeat until all cookies are lovely matcha sandwiches!
