These soft, chewy and beautifully bright green cookies might just be your new favourite treat.
I must say that these chewy Matcha White Chocolate Cookies go perfectly with a matcha latte. I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life, I’m just trying to make it better. Trust me. Have I ever steered you wrong?
If you like matcha you will love these.
The earthy taste of the matcha is perfectly offset by the sweet creaminess of the white chocolate. And I am not shy with the white chocolate in these. Or the vanilla. It’s really a matcha made in heaven. Get it? Of course you do. Sorry. I promise that’s the only one I’ll do.
Make sure you use a good quality matcha powder for these cookies, not a green tea drink mix or sweetened powder. Both ceremonial and culinary grade matchas are fine though.
Anything Special You Need to Know about this Matcha White Chocolate Cookie Recipe?
*I use regular white chocolate chips and minis in these, but you don’t have to. You can use one or the other, or even chunks, or a chopped up white chocolate bar.
*Sometimes matcha can get a little clumpy, and if mine gets that way I just sift it through a strainer into the flour. A big lump of dry matcha in a bite of cookie will not make you happy.
*You probably already know that green tea is good for you, but if you want a bit more info on the benefits of matcha read this. Look at me out here helping you improve your health.
