Inspired by a recipe for sugar cookies submitted by Stephanie on allrecipes, I decided to create a matcha green tea cookie with the easy recipe. The result was quite yummy. The cookies are crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. They came out a beautiful shade of pale green.
Yield: Approximately 4 dozen cookies
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together
flour, matcha green tea powder, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat
in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll
dough into balls about one inch in diameter and flatten slightly to create round discs, and place onto ungreased
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand
on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
