1 1/3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together cream cheese, coconut oil and butter until creamy.  Beat in sugar, vanilla, matcha and egg until well combined and smooth.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in white chocolate chips until combined.  Chill dough in refrigerator or freezer until cold - about 45 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets.  Bake about 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown on the outsides.  Cool cookies on a wire rack.

  1. Interesting. I'm not fond of drinking plain matcha tea, but I have enjoyed the occasional matcha dessert, so I would definitely check these out. Very cross-cultural to put a Japanese product on St. Patrick's day for the color.

    1. I'll have to try drinking the tea straight... I'm not sure if I'd like it or not. It was good with the milk and sugar. That's me! Very cultured! ;) Not really.

  2. Those cookies look delicious! I've made green tea ice cream before with matcha powder. It was more expensive than I thought it was going to be, but the cheapest I've found is at Wegmans.

    1. Thanks, Katie! Hey, you've given me an idea! I will have to make green tea ice cream in the summer.

  3. "Grassy in a good way". You are so funny! I love the comments about your recipes that you and your honey make. I still get tickled about the candy "Reindeer Scat" you made. Love to read your blog and your recipes. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Teehee! Glad I can give you a laugh! My dad made up the name of the reindeer scat! He's so funny. Thanks for reading! That means so much to me. :) I feel like no one ever stops by anymore!
