  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (spoon and leveled)
  • 2 ½ tbsp matcha green tea powder
  • 2/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips


  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour and matcha powder
  • Using a stand or hand mixer, cream the softened butter until smooth (2-3 minutes)
  • Slowly add in the confectioners’ sugar and mix until fully combined
  • Add in the egg yolks and mix well
  • Carefully add in the flour and matcha mixture and mix until fully combined. This will take a few minutes but keep mixing!
  • Add in the white chocolate chips and mix together
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and cut in half to make two portions
  • Roll each portion into a 1 ½ inch (4cm) by 7 inches (18 cm) long cylinder. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store them in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours
  • Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 1/- inch rounds, and lay 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet
  • Bake cookies in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the edges just start to lightly brown
  • Remove from oven, allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to fully cool
