Step by step recipe

8 Chocolate and matcha tea biscuits : Photo of step #8Remove any remaining flour from the dough (with a soft brush, for example) and moisten the top of each rectangle using a pastry brush. This is so that the 2 pieces of dough will stick together. 5 min.

Remarks

As always with shortbread-style biscuits, it is important not to overcook them. They should still be slightly yielding and not completely hard and dry.

You can vary this recipe however you wish, using flavours other than chocolate and matcha, so use your imagination. I have a little weakness myself for lemon and pistachio.
