Matcha Tea Cookies
Like the perfect cup of green tea but in cookie form, how fun!
I hope you make these and I hope you eat them for breakfast. Dream big.
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup buttermilk (can sub almond milk + 1 teaspoon lemon juice)
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 teaspoons matcha powder
1/3 cup slivered almonds
Bailey's Irish Cream Glaze
2-3 tablespoons baileys
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together the butter, vanilla, and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and beat until fluffy, then add the buttermilk and mix until incorporated. Use a baking spatula the scrape down the sides as needed.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda into a medium bowl and slowly add into the wet ingredients, 1/3 at a time, mixing in between until fully incorporated.
Add in the matcha powder and mix until its all green! You could do this with the flour but its more fun this way. Next add in the almonds and slowly mix until just evenly spread throughout.
Use a 1/4 cup measure or an ice cream scoop to measure out the dough and form into balls. place on the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake at 375 for 6 minutes then reduce the temp to 350 and bake another 7-8 minutes. Toothpick test to see if they're done! Remove and let them sit (or just eat them straight away, I don't judge)
Optional: mix together bailey's and powdered sugar in a small bowl, drizzle over the cookies or dip them in top side down. It's an unexpected combo but it works, just trust me, and if you don't agree, let me know!!
If you make these, let me know! I love hearing from you all on instagram so tag me or direct message me or whatever you're feeling! To quote one of the great movies of our time - "we're all in this together"
