Green Tea Lime Cookies
(adapted from a recipe from Chef Carol Wallack, owner of Chicago’s Sola restaurant)
½ cup semolina flour
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1 tablespoon jasmine dream dry tea leaves, finely chopped
1 ½ teaspoons matcha
Grated zest of 1 lime
1/3 cup whipping cream
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in the mixing bowl of a standing mixture. Add cold butter; beat just until the flour mixture is crumbly. Stir in the two teas and lime zest. Pour in cream; blend well.
Roll out the dough on floured surface to 1/8 -inch thick. Cut into 1 ½-inch circles with cookie cutter. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place cookies on parchment. Bake until top is firm, 12 minutes per batch.
