Servings 14 Biscotti



  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons matcha
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

For topping:

  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tablespoon raw or granulated sugar for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly grease.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, matcha, baking powder, and salt. Slowly mix into the butter mixture until just combined. Fold in the slivered almonds.
  • On the prepared baking sheet, form the dough into a 12 inch long log, about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches wide. Reduce oven temperature to 275 degrees F.
  • Beat the egg in a small bowl and brush over the top of the log of dough. Sprinkle with the raw or granulated sugar.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm and golden on the bottom, 22-25 minutes. Allow to cool until able to be handled.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 275˚F. Use a serrated knife to cut the log on the diagonal into 1/2 inch thick slices. Arrange the slices back on the baking sheet, cut side down. Bake until crisp, 15-20 minutes. Flip the cookies to the other side and continue to bake until other side is crisp, another 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before storing in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
