Simple Matcha Cookies

You will need:

  • all-purpose flour2 cups all-purpose flour
  • matcha powder1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • baking soda1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • salt1/4 teaspoon salt
  • unsalted butter1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • granulated sugar1 cup granulated sugar
  • large egg1 large egg
  • vanilla extract1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). This will ensure your oven is at the right temperature when your cookies are ready to bake.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, sift together 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of matcha powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Sifting helps to eliminate any lumps and combine the dry ingredients evenly.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream together 1 cup of softened unsalted butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar. The mixture should become light and fluffy, this will take about 2-3 minutes of beating.
  4. Next, beat in 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture. Ensure that these are well incorporated.
  5. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients to the wet mixture. Do this in batches to prevent the flour from spilling out of the bowl and to ensure a smooth dough.
  6. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 2 inches of space between each ball.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden. Be sure not to overbake them as they can become too hard.
  8. Finally, allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps the cookies to set and makes them easier to remove from the baking sheet.
