1. Green Tea Cookie Recipe

This is a simple and no-frills matcha tea cookie recipe that makes approximately 7 dozen cookies.  These cookies are crispy, buttery, and utterly delicious.


– 2 cups of flour (all-purpose)

– 1 tablespoon of matcha green tea powder

– 2 tablespoons of green tea leaves (finely ground)

– 1 cup of unsalted butter, softened (two sticks)

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– 1/2 powdered sugar, plus 2 extra tablespoons


1. Begin by mixing your flour, matcha, salt, and ground green tea leaves in a bowl. In a mixer bowl, cream together your butter and your sugar until fluffy and pale. This should take you roughly 3 minutes if you are mixing on medium speed. Then, on low speed, slowly begin to mix in your flour mixture.

2. Divide your dough in half. Place each half on a piece of parchment paper. Shape each half into a log that is 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Roll each log inside the parchment paper, and as you turn, press to release any trapped air. Once this has been done, allow your two logs to freeze for 1 hour.

3. After 1 hour in the freezer, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While it is heating, unwrap your logs and begin making slices that are 1/4 inches thick. On parchment-lined baking sheets, place your cookie pieces 1 inch apart from each other. When your oven is ready, bake your cookies for 14 minutes, or until they are a golden color. Allow them to cool, and then enjoy!
