  • 1/3 c Unsalted butter
  • 1/3 c Shortening or Solid coconut oil
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp. Coconut extract

  • Lime juice and finely ground lime peel taken from 1 lime
  • 1/2 c chopped pistachios

Directions

  1. Beat 1/3 cup unsalted butter and 1/3 cup shortening or solid coconut oil. Add 3/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon baking powder. Beat until combined.
  2.  Beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon coconut extract. Stir in 2 cups flour and 2 teaspoons Edible Green® or MATCHA green tea powder. (You will need to mix the dough by hand until butter/shortening becomes soft and binds the dough together.)
  3. Roll half of the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4″ thick. Using a 3 to 4″ biscuit cutter, cut into rounds. (Or, use cookie cutters to make festive designs!) Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

  5. Make frosting. (This is optional–the cookies are delicious with or without frosting.) Mix lime juice and finely ground
    lime peel from a lime with 1 cup powdered sugar.
  6. Frost the cooled cookies with the powder sugar mixture and sprinkle with chopped pistachios.
