Green Tea Matcha Cookies


  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon green tea matcha powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: white chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried cranberries for added flavor and texture


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, green tea matcha powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Beat until well combined.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough.
  • If desired, fold in any optional mix-ins like white chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried cranberries.
  • Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  • Flatten each dough ball slightly with the bottom of a glass or the palm of your hand.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly golden.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheet for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the Green Tea Matcha Cookies have cooled, enjoy them with a cup of green tea or store them in an airtight container for later enjoyment.

These Green Tea Matcha Cookies offer a unique and delightful flavor with a hint of green tea. They're perfect for tea lovers and those looking for a delicious and slightly different cookie experience.
