In today’s post, I want to share a green tea cookie recipe.  I love the green tea cookies from Kyotofu and wanted to try making it at home.  This is the perfect treat to drink with a cup of warm matcha.  It is also such a simple, quick, yummy recipe, there’s no reason not to try it!

Green Tea Cookies (makes about 2 dozen) – recipe from Lovescool


  • 3/4 cup – Confectioners sugar
  • 5 oz – Unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 3/4 cup – All-purpose flour
  • 3 – Large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tbsp – Matcha (powdered green tea)
  • 1 cup – Granulated sugar (for dusting)

  1. Whisk confectioners sugar and matcha/green tea powder together in a bowl.
  2. Add the butter and green tea/sugar mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  3. Mix until smooth and light in color. Add the flour and mix until well combined.
  4. Add the egg yolks and mix just until the eggs are fully incorporated and a mass forms.
  5. Form the dough into a disk and chill in the refrigerator until firm (about 30 minutes).
  6. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  7. Roll the dough out to ½” thickness.
  8. Cut the dough with a cookie cutter. Toss each cut cookie in a bowl of granulated sugar to coat.
  9. Place the sugar-coated cookie on a parchment lined pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges.
