Guardians of the Galaxy Groot Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 egg
chocolate frosting
black frosting
matcha (green tea) powder

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg.

Slowly add in the flour mixture until it is incorporated. The dough will form quickly, and when it starts to pull away from the bowl, it’s done!

Split the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill until you are ready to use.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with silpats.

Roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out random tree-ish shapes approx 4 inches tall and transfer onto the silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes then let cool on a wire rack.
Using a #2 tip and chocolate frosting, pipe lines to resemble tree bark.

With the black frosting and a #3 tip add the details of two eyes and a line for Groot’s mouth.

For the final touch, use a pastry paintbrush dipped in Matcha (green tea) powder and add some hints of green to the top of Groot’s head.

Once the frosting has set, the cookies are ready to serve.
