Green Tea Cookies with Peanuts 

I've been wanting to try cooking this, at first i thought it will not taste good, but it turns out to be so Delicious..:) 

All you need it the following

2 1/2 cup of all purpose flour 
1 1/2 tablespoon of green tea powder (matcha)
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup unsalted butter (softened) 
3 large yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 cup nuts


-In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and green tea powder. Set aside.In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Stop the mixer and use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla  extract, and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Fold in the peanuts with a spatula. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes. Place racks in the center and upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking pans, spacing them about 1 1/2-2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven, and allow cookies to cool on pans for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
