    1. Mix matcha and flour in a bowl. In another bowl beat butter and sugar till creamy. Add egg whites and stir well to combine.
    2. Whisk the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Cover and let rest for 1 hour.
    3. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with a silicone mat or baking parchment.
    4. For each cigarette russe place 2 tablespoons of the mix onto the prepared baking tray. Spread it thinly to a rectangular shape using the underside of a spoon.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    6. Remove the baking tray from the oven.

Leave it there until hardened, then gently remove it and let cool.
    7. Shape all cigarettes russes as described.
