I’m about to barf out a whole bunch of recipes for y’all. Here’s what I made yesterday for some special friends! I’m obsessed with the green tea powder I bought from Amazon, so here’s another way I used it. White chocolate x Green Tea is a great combo, lemme just say! These cookies are dense and chewy, they have the perfect green tea flavor. 🙂
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons green tea powder (matcha)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and green tea powder. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Stop the mixer and use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chunks or chips with a spatula. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.
4. Place racks in the center and upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
5. Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking pans, spacing them about 1 1/2-2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven, and allow cookies to cool on pans for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
