Makes 18 cookies

Using a stand mixed fitted with a paddle attachment, mix butter and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, flour, salt, and matcha and mix until a ball of dough forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Roll out dough and use a cookie cutter to cut cookies into desired shape. Transfer cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of cookies just begin to turn golden brown.
