Green Tea Fingers

I baked this last week as my fingers were feeling "itchy". This was the simplest baking one could do.
shortbread_greentea2 Recipe for Green Tea Fingers, modified from "Cakes & Bakes".
Makes a 8" square pan (possible to bake in a 9" round pan too!)

Ingredients:
175g Cold Butter, plus extra for greasing
225g Plain flour
1 1/4 tsp Green Tea powder
60g Fine sugar
shortbread_greentea1
Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 8" square pan.
2. Sift the flour, green tea powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar.
3. Rub in the butter until the mixture begins to stick together.
4. Press the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top with a palette knife.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40mins, or until browned.

6. Leave it to cool thoroughly before slicing and serve.
7. Stores well in an air-tight container. shortbread_greentea3

Just wondering how the texture is like coz there is no egg and baking powder on the recipe. Something special.

Angel, the texture is like shortbread. It's crumbly and crispy. My colleagues have tried it and love the texture. Try it and see if you like it.
