First, let's gather the ingredients you'll need for these scrumptious cookies:

  • Brown Sugar: ½ cup
  • Granulated Sugar: ½ cup
  • Egg: 1 large
  • Vanilla Extract: ½ teaspoon
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon
  • Baking Soda: ½ teaspoon

  • Matcha Powder: 1 tablespoon (preferably Be More Matcha for its vibrant color and taste)
  • All-Purpose Flour: 1 ⅓ cups

Step 1: Preparing the Dough

Start by melting the unsalted butter in a medium saucepan or microwave. Once melted, whisk in both brown and granulated sugars until well combined.

Start creating matcha cookies

Crack the egg into the mixture, followed by vanilla extract, and whisk vigorously.
Incorporate the salt, baking soda, and baking powder, whisking until everything is evenly distributed.

Stirring your egg into the mixture

Stir in the matcha powder until the mixture turns a lovely green hue.
Gradually add the flour, mixing until just combined to avoid overworking the dough.

Adding matcha to the mixture

Fold in the crushed Oreo cookies and white chocolate chips, mixing to distribute them evenly throughout the dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for 2 hours to firm up.

This chilling step is crucial as it helps the flavors meld together and prevents the cookies from spreading too much during baking.

    Step 2: Baking the Cookies

    • Preheat your oven to 360°F (182°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
    • Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out dough balls and place them on the baking sheet, spaced well apart. Gently flatten the tops to help them spread evenly while baking.
    • If desired, press a few more crushed Oreo pieces and white chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies for an extra burst of flavor and texture.
    • Bake for 6 minutes, then if you like, add additional Oreo pieces and white chocolate chips before continuing to bake for another 6 minutes. This step is optional but adds to the cookies' visual appeal and texture.
    • Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and gently shape them into perfect rounds with a circular object, such as a bowl or mug.
    • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Frequently Asked Questions: Matcha Cookies and Cream Recipe

    Can I make these cookies vegan or gluten-free?

    To make these cookies vegan, substitute the butter with a plant-based alternative and use a flax egg instead of a regular egg. For a gluten-free version, replace the all-purpose flour with your preferred gluten-free flour blend.
