Ok, so today I'm going to get right to the point, quick!!! Simply because I think that if you are someone who enjoys Green Tea, Matcha Green Tea or things of the like, you will really enjoy this recipe.
Let me tell you a few things about the Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder just in case you are new to it. If you are like me, and are always trying to stay healthy and find new ways to stay healthy and in shape, you will porobably like green tea for so many reasons. I recently had the opportunity to try an Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder by Uvernal. This was the first 100% Organic Matcha Powder (made from whole green tea leaves) I've tried, and it certainly did not disappoint. The Uvernal pure green tea powder boasts help in the following areas:
- Memory and Concentration
- Stimulates Metabolism
- Boosts Energy
- Fat Blocker
- No Artificial Chemicals
It also states that since this powder is made from whole green tea leaves (finest in the world), "your body will benefit from all of it's nutritional properties". And not only does it retain all of it's nutritional value, you can use it to make so many tasty things like ice cream, latte's, waffles (my next venture), cookies, and my favorite TEA!!! Sounds like a WINNER to me. Now that you know a little about the benefits of Matcha Green Tea Powder, let's move on to the cookies.
I need to start by saying that this green tea is one of the strongest I've had to date, so a little bit goes a very, very long way. With that said, this matcha powder will last quite a while unless you chug a lot of it more than once a day.
I am such a sucker for sweets that it's ridiculous, so being that I like green tea and had the opportunity to try this one, I figured what better way to try something new than to make it into a simple snack. For me, these cookies have just the right amount of Matcha Green Tea Powder. I really enjoyed these cookies and I just had to share the recipe. Feel free to adjust the amount of green tea powder to your liking.
Matcha Green Tea Powder Cookies (Adapted from Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe By: The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle)
(Please see notes at the end)
1 Cup Butter (2 Sticks)
1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 TBSP Matcha Green Tea Powder
1 TBSP Vanilla Flavor (I used Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1. Heat oven to 375.
2. In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
3. In a mixing bowl add butter, powdered sugar matcha powder and flavor. Mix on medim speed until well combined and smooth.
4. Turn to mixer to low and add the egg. Mix until incorporated.
5. On low speed, slowly add the dry ingredient mix until well combined. (About 2 minutes was good for me in KitchenAid stand mixer).
6. Place cookies 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and bake for 11 minutes (more if you like darker cookies).
Note: I rolled the cookie dough in my hands and flattened and place on the cookie sheet. They could probably be rolled and cut-out as well, but I didn't try that method.
Also, a short review on this particular brand.
LIKES: Great flavor-I really liked this tea. Strong, but good. Follow the instructions carefully and you should be fine.
Amazing fresh color and aroma, which makes me feel like it's more organic.
All of the health benefits as well as the many uses. Can't wait to try more recipes.
Dislikes: A little more bitter than expected, but easy to combat the bitterness with a little honey or sugar.
This was my first time trying green tea cookies and I am definitely planning to keep these in the house from now on. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did.
