Bake Delicious matcha green tea cookies with chocolate
These chewy and sweet matcha-flavoured chocolate chip cookies add a taste of Japan to a classic Western treat!

Makes 16 cookies

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour

  2. 3 tablespoons matcha powder

  3. ½ teaspoon baking soda

  4. ½ teaspoon salt

  5. ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, melted and cooled

  6. 1 cup brown sugar, packed

  7. ½ cup white sugar

  8. 1 egg, room temperature

  9. 1 egg yolk, room temperature

  10. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  11. 1¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping if desired*

 Let's start

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, matcha powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.


2. In a large bowl, beat melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until the sugar has completely incorporated into the butter. The mixture should resemble a thick caramel sauce. (It would be easiest to use an electric mixer but using a whisk works fine as well. Just make sure to mix it well.)


3. Mix in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, until the mixture is light, creamy, and smooth.


4. Gradually fold in the flour mixture until dough is well-blended.

5. Pop the cookie dough into the fridge for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.*


6. Using an ice cream scoop, portion cookie dough onto baking sheets, leaving 2 to 3 inches between each mound to give it room to spread. (While the previous batch is baking, return your cookie dough into the fridge.)


7Bake in the oven until edges are lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes. (Don't bake for too long) Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.


8. Melt the chocolate au bain-marie and carefully dip the cooled off cookies in the chocolate.
