Step 1: Melt the Butter

Start by melting 10 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a saucepan over low heat. Be sure to keep the heat low to prevent burning. This will give your cookies a rich, buttery flavor.

Step 2: Add Sugars

Add ½ cup of brown sugar to the melted butter and continue to heat on low for 30 seconds. Then, add ½ cup of granulated sugar and melt on low heat for another minute. Whisk the mixture until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together ½ teaspoon of baking soda, ½ teaspoon of salt, ⅛ teaspoon of baking powder, and 2 tablespoons of matcha powder. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until combined.

Step 5: Sift and Add Flour

Sift 1 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour and add it to the mixture. Stir until just combined to avoid overmixing, which can make the cookies tough.

Step 6: Add KitKat Pieces

Chop the strawberry and matcha-flavored KitKat bars into small pieces and fold them into the dough. The amount can vary based on your preference, but a good handful should do the trick.

Step 7: Chill the Dough

Cover the dough and refrigerate it for 2-3 hours. Chilling the dough helps the cookies maintain their shape and enhances the flavors.

Step 8: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 9: Scoop and Shape

Using an ice cream scooper, scoop the dough onto the lined baking tray. Alternatively, you can roll the dough into balls and flatten them slightly.

Make sure to place the cookies far apart on the tray as they will spread during baking. Add a few more KitKat pieces on top for extra flavor and decoration.

Step 10: Bake

Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes. About 6 minutes into baking, take a mug or bowl and place it over each cookie to help shape them perfectly round.

This step is optional but gives your cookies a professional look.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I use regular KitKat bars instead of the flavored ones?

Yes, you can use regular KitKat bars if you can't find the strawberry and matcha-flavored ones. The cookies will still be delicious, though they will have a different flavor profile.

Can I use matcha powder meant for drinking?

Absolutely! Just make sure it’s culinary-grade matcha, which is suitable for baking and cooking.

How long should I chill the dough?

Chilling the dough for 2-3 hours is ideal. This helps the cookies maintain their shape and enhances the flavors. If you're in a rush, you can chill it for a minimum of 1 hour, but the longer, the better.

Can I freeze the cookie dough?

Yes, you can freeze the dough. Shape it into balls, then freeze them on a baking sheet until solid. Transfer the frozen dough balls to a zip-top bag and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen, adding a couple of extra minutes to the baking time.

What can I use instead of brown sugar?

You can use coconut sugar or increase the amount of granulated sugar. However, brown sugar adds moisture and a slight caramel flavor, so keep that in mind.

Why do I need to use a mug or bowl to shape the cookies halfway through baking?

Using a mug or bowl to shape the cookies halfway through baking helps to create perfectly round cookies and ensures an even thickness.

How do I store the baked cookies?

Store the baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the baked cookies for up to 3 months.

Can I add other mix-ins to the dough?

Definitely! Feel free to add other mix-ins like white chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruits to customize your cookies.
