  1. Step 1

    Mix the flour, sugar and matcha powder. Add the butter, mix to form a dough. Roll out the dough (approx. 2 mm thick) between two sheets of baking paper, chill for approx. 30 mins.
  2. Step 2

    Bring the water, butter, sugar and salt to the boil, reduce the heat. Add the flour and matcha powder all at once, stir with a wooden spoon for approx. 2 mins. until a smooth dough is formed which separates from the base of the pan. Remove the pan from the heat. Using the dough hook on a mixer, gradually mix in the eggs; the dough should be soft but not runny. Transfer to a piping bag with a smooth nozzle (approx. 16 mm in diameter). Pipe approx. 16 mounds onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, ensuring they are well spaced out. Cut out approx. 16 circles (approx. 4 cm in diameter) from the craquelin, place on the mounds.
