To make our matcha cinnamon cookies, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Here's how to make them:
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, matcha powder, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
4. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

7. Gently flatten each dough ball with the bottom of a glass or the palm of your hand.
8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
