Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

  • Sift flour, matcha, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Beat brown sugar, butter, and white sugar together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until blended; beat in vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy.

  • Mix flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until dough is just blended; fold in chocolate chips using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough, 1 heaping tablespoon per cookie, onto the prepared baking sheet 2 to 3 inches apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

We made some changes, based on the other reviews and our taste after our first batch. We made two separate batches. For the whole bowl, we left out the white sugar completely and put in half a tablespoon more of matcha. We also used chocolate chunks instead of white chocolate. The first batch came out, and they looked pretty, but they tasted like regular chocolate chip cookies so we were kind of disappointed. So for the second batch, we added more of the matcha powder like about another tablespoon, which made the matcha taste come out a little more, but made the cookies a darker color and less pretty. We also added a pinch more salt for the second batch because the first one was lacking. Overall though, it was kind of disappointing because matcha is so expensive and this needed so much before the flavor came out. I used maeda-en culinary quality matcha. Read More

Ugh I forgot the chips. Oh well. I had some difficulty with these. The dough was very crumbly and I found it difficult to shape. I double checked the ingredient amounts so I don't believe I made any error. While baking they don't spread at all so I ended up with some pretty ugly cookies lol. I did enjoy the tea flavor (I used a bit more than the recipe called for) but found them too sweet and the texture was on the dry side. I'll still use them this holiday but I doubt I'll make them again. Read More

I've not attempted this recipe but I do bake cookies frequently. After reading the reviews I believe there's typo with the measurement of the brown sugar... Usually it's equal parts of white sugar to brown sugar; it should really read 1/2 cup brown sugar. Then one wouldn't encounter the overly-sweet cookies like EarthGirl did. I will update the rating after I try this recipe as I've been searching for one like this. Read More

Great recipe! Worked very well with the exception I will lower the total sugar amount and add more Matcha powder. They are quite sweet but taste great. Wonderful green hue that made my family look twice. Read More

Great basis recipe. I skipped the white sugar (so only one cup of brown sugar) added an extra tbsp of matcha powder and used margarine instead of butter. Turned out great! Still a bit of sweet will cut brown sugar to 3/4 cup next time and maybe bring back the butter as margarine turned out too soft (still super yummy though). Read More

This is my go-to recipe for cookie exchanges and any festive holiday season parties. Your friends will be asking for the recipe before you leave! I prefer softened butter to melted butter so the cookies keep their round shape. I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar. Use a melon baller to scoop the cookies and add 5-6 white chocolate chips per cookie - white chocolate chips are extremely sweet! Bake for 10 minutes leave on the sheet for an additional 2 minutes and let cool. The matcha produces a beautiful green color. You can always add more matcha to meet your taste. A guaranteed hit!
