Jenny Butter Cookies Copycat

This is the original recipe without the matcha, using Pamplie salted butter thus salt is omitted from the ingredients list too. Awesomeness!

img_3699This version is copycatted from Ms Tam ChiakđŸ˜›

200g butter (I used La Belle unsalted)
50g icing sugar, sifted
50g plain flour
100g wheat flour (or top flour) [I used low protein flour or superfine flour]
50g corn flour
5g matcha powder
1/2 tsp fine salt



Preheat oven to 160C.

Cream butter and gradually add in the sifted icing sugar and beat till pale and fluffy.

Sift plain flour, superfine flour, salt, matcha and corn flour twice.

Add flours all at once into the creamed butter and using low speed, mix until a soft dough is formed.  Do not over mix or the dough would be too soft and you will end up with flat cookies!

Put the dough into a piping bag with a piping nozzle and pipe directly on to the baking sheet lined with baking paper or silicon mat.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the cookies turn light golden brown at the bottom.

Leave it to cool on a cooling rack before storing them in air-tight container.

    Hi Jeannie. Lovely cookies. Can I use cake flour instead of superfine? Also is this dough easy to pipe. For coffee flavor do I just sub the with 5 GM coffee powder and mix with flour or do i need to dissolve it first. Thanks. Chloe

      Yes you can use Cake flour which in fact is similar if not same as superfine flour. You need to cream the butter till soft and creamy before mixing in flour but do not over beat too or you will end up with flat cookies.

      Must not overbeat your butter and sugar mixture, you can in fact use hand whisk to do this part too to avoid over beating.

    Hi jeannie, would like to check with

    Wheat starch = wheat flour
    Corn starch = corn flour

    Or wheat starch & wheat flour is diffrent?

    Thanks in advanced.

      Yes can use wheat starch is the correct one although my son said they are different. I used wheat starch for this recipe. Corn starch is corn flour. Confusing huh!

  5. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe, could I substitute the matcha powder with either cocoa powder (as my kids loves chocolate) or coffee powder (do I need to dilute it, if yes how much powder & water to use?). Thanks in advance for your advice.


    • jeannietay said

      yes can sub with cocoa powder. for coffee, use coffee powder without diluting it. If you cannot find coffee powder, grind nescafe coffee granules until very fine before adding and add a drop of coffee oil for extra smell.

    Hi Jeannie, Just wondering if you have ever tried or got the recipe for pandan flavour cookies? When we were in Bangkok and I bought the pandan cookies by S&P bakery and I really loved it.
    Wondering if you know how to make it? I have tried to put in the pandan essence into the batter however the butter is overpowdering the pandan essence and so could not taste the pandan at all.

      Try this Search for Pandan Flavored Coconut powder and replace it with the original flavored coconut powder
