Summer is almost over and what better way to end it with some cookies, matcha cookies to be exact. I know it’s a bit unconventional, but once you taste these cookies, you’ll never get enough of it. This recipe will make about 20 cookies, enough for everyone to enjoy.
As a kid, I can’t even remember how many cookies I had. My mother always makes the time to bake some, even if it’s just a simple chocolate chip cookie. I want to take my mother’s recipe and create something new with it. I wanted to try incorporating Matcha to my baking, and I think this is the time.
These cookies are a healthier option, and if you want to double-dip on its benefits, some green tea is a great pair for this cookie. Or, if you like chocolate like my kids, you can always melt some dark chocolate and pour some on it.
Ingredients for Matcha Cookies
1 ½ tablespoon of matcha powder
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 stick of unsalted butter
½ cup of powdered sugar
How to Make Matcha Cookies
Sift together the first three dry ingredients, and then set aside. Beat the powdered sugar and the butter in a stand mixer on medium speed (or with an electric mixer). Adjust the mixer speed to low and gradually add the matcha/flour mixture in the wet ingredients. Remove the dough once fully incorporated and form into a log about 10-12 inches long, wrap, and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 325 F . Cut the dough log into 20 cookies and evenly line them up on the baking sheet. Bake until cookies just start to brown (about 15 minutes). Serve and enjoy.
