Green Tea Sugar Cookies

I found pictures of the first version of green tea cookies I made a few months ago. This version is more crisp than the version I posted a while ago made with cream cheese. This recipe also makes a firmer dough which lends itself well to being rolled and cut with cute cookie cutters, which is what I did here :-)





Green Tea Sugar Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tsp green tea powder


1. Cream butter and sugar til light and fluffy.

2. Add egg, vanilla and milk.

3. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and add to butter/egg mixture in 2-3 batches until you get a soft dough.

4. Form dough into disk and refrigerate for a few hours until firm.

5. Roll dough 1/4-1/3 inch thick and cut out with cookie cutters.

6. Chill cookie pieces. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350.

7. Bake cookies for 15-18 minutes until the bottom is slightly brown.

8. Cool on wire racks.
