  • 1 c all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon green tea matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ c unsalted butter, softened
  • c granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • c white chocolate chips (optional)
  • c granulated sugar (for rolling)
  • c powdered sugar (for rolling)


  • In a bowl, stir together flour, matcha powder, and baking powder.
  • Using a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar on high speed for three minutes.
  • Then, add vanilla extract and eggs and mix together until all ingredients are incorporated together. You may need to scrape down the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  • Next, add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until smooth.
  • If adding white chocolate chips, stir them in at this time.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare two bowls – one with granulated sugar and one with powdered sugar.
  • Once the dough has chilled, scoop out spoonfuls and roll into 1″ balls (it will still be a bit sticky and that’s okay).
  • Roll dough balls first in granulated sugar and then in powdered sugar.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and enjoy!
