What are Matcha Cookies

Matcha is a finely ground tea powder that is traditionally used to make green tea. This Japanese green tea powder has many health benefits, including antioxidants and caffeine. In addition, it can help with weight loss, skincare, and more. Most importantly, when mixed with other ingredients, it makes delicious matcha cookies! Now matcha can be found in the form of a latte, powder, and in this case, cookies. The addition of matcha in this recipe gives the cookies a unique taste and makes the color look great too.

 

Why Matcha Cookies

This Matcha Cookies Recipe is perfect for those who are looking to satisfy their sweet tooth while benefiting from the health properties of Matcha. The matcha gives these cookies an earthy and rich taste. The flavor profile of this cookie is earthy and nutty with a hint of sweetness from the matcha.

 

How to Enjoy Matcha Cookies

These cookies are for those who love matcha and want to try it in other ways. They are also for those who want to pair their matcha with coffee. I suggest you make them with a nice cup of cold brew, a latte, or even an iced mocha. Sipping a cup of tea is also a nice way to enjoy these cookies. For an added touch of green, try a matcha latte or matcha iced tea.

Ingredients of Matcha Cookies

This recipe can make about 16 cookies

  • Low-gluten flour 120g

  • Matcha powder 10g

  • Egg 20g

  • Caster sugar 55g

  • Unsalted butter 120g

  • Salt 1g

 

Preparation

To make sure your cookies dough is tender, sift the low-gluten flour. Leave the butter out on the counter while you do this to soften it slightly. Be careful not to overwork the dough or it will become tough.

 

How to Make

​​Firstly, preheat the oven to 302° Fahrenheit / 150° Celsius. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, salt, caster sugar with a whisk until smooth and fluffy in light white color.

Add the egg mixture and continue to mix well with the egg beater. Add the sifted low-gluten flour and matcha powder, and then use a silicone baking spatula to stir evenly by cutting and mixing. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl walls to bring the butter mixture to the center of the bowl.

Put the dough into a pastry bag, and squeeze out the cookie shape (can squeeze more on top to make it higher because the cookie will shrink and collapse after baking).

Bake in the preheated oven at 302° Fahrenheit / 150° Celsius for 20 to 25 minutes or until they are no longer glossy on top. Leave cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray then move them to a wire rack to cool completely and it’s done.

 

How to Store/Freeze This Recipe

To Store: Matcha cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

To Freeze: Place cooled matcha cookies in a ziplock freezer bag. Seal tightly and freeze for up to 3 months.

To Thaw: Place cookie on a plate at room temperature for 1 hour or until ready to eat.
