Short and sweet baking post today! A friend of mine recently wanted to try his hand at baking, and so our first venture was actually cookie butter white chocolate chip cookies (boy, that’s a mouthful). After his success, he suggested that we come up with a recipe for cookies with green tea, since he had green tea cookies in Japan and wanted to make his own. I told him that I couldn’t promise to re-create the experience, but we’ll make cookies. Haha. I found matcha tea powder from Ranch 99 (forgot which brand), and we decided to also add some white chocolate chips.
For these cookies, we added 2 tablespoons of green tea powder for 2 dozen cookies. They did not turn out as green as I had hoped, so next time I would definitely add some more powder just for the color. The green tea taste was there, though, and it complemented the white chocolate chips quite well.
My friend and I enjoyed these chewy and soft green tea cookies. I hope you like them too!
