Matcha Puff Pastry Twists:

  • 1 tablespoon milk hot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons matcha (green tea) powder sifted
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 sheets puff pastry defrosted if frozen
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water

Matcha Sweetened Condensed Milk Icing:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon matcha (green tea) powder
  • 6 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk


To make the Matcha Puff Pastry Twists:

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or lightly grease.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the matcha powder into the hot milk. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk and flour until smooth and no lumps remain. 
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out two sheets of puff pastry until smooth and equal in size rectangles. Spread a thin layer of the matcha filling over one of the puff pastry sheets. Gently top with the other puff pastry sheet, pressing the edges to seal. 
  • In a small bowl, beat together the egg and water. Brush the egg wash over the top puff pastry sheet. 
  • Cut the filled puff pastry along the short side into 15 strips about 3/4 inch wide. Twist each strip and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. 
  • Bake in preheated oven until puffed and golden, 15-18 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before topping with the icing.

To make the Matcha Sweetened Condensed Milk Icing:

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter until light and creamy.
  • Gently beat in the powdered sugar and matcha until fully incorporated, then the condensed milk until smooth.
  • Drizzle over the cooled Matcha Puff Pastry Twists.
