Green Tea Cookies


Green Tea is one of my all-time favorite flavors. I love anything green tea flavored. If you've kept up with the blog, you know that it's been a while since I've put up a new green tea recipe.

These cookies are sweet, soft, chewy, and decadent! The white chocolate adds a richness to the matcha flavor. The green tea cookies are perfect for making ice cream sandwiches. They stay chewy, and are easy to bite into. I paired it with green tea ice cream. I have a recipe that you can find (here). If you're not feeling like breaking out the ice cream machine, vanilla ice cream also goes extremely well with these cookies.


Green Tea Cookies (Makes 24 cookies)
6 oz Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Green Tea Powder
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cream soft butter, sugar, and green tea powder together until the color is light, and the texture is airy.
3. Add the eggs and vanilla gradually, scraping the bowl between additions.
4. Add the white chocolate chips to the batter and mix until they are incorporated.
5. Add the dry ingredients at once, and mix on low speed until the batter comes together.
6. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl, and allow to mix to evenly incorporate the ingredients.
7. On a parchment or foil lined baking sheet, scoop about 1.5 tbsp portions of batter about 3-4 inches apart. It may not look like much, but the cookies will spread a lot.
6. Bake for about 10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. They will poof up and look soft in the center. The cookie will settle as it cools.
7. Remove the cookies from the oven when the edges are golden. Allow to cool completely.
8. If you are using them for an ice cream sandwich, place in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Then, scoop a small portion of ice cream onto the cookie.
9. Sandwich the cookie and return to the freezer for about 10 minutes.This is to let the ice cream firm up.

You can store the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. If you are planning to eat them later, thaw the sandwich for about 3-5 minutes, just to let the cookie warm up a little.


The cookies I made came out to be about 3 inches in diameter. It makes a perfect snack to satisfy a sweet tooth!

  1. Hey girl! I want to make these cookies! But I just realized you didn't include the green tea in the ingredients. Do you use green tea powder and add it in with the dry ingredients? How much do you use?

    I miss you! I just caught up on your blog. YOU ARE AMAZING! I hope I can see you someday soon!
