Green Tea and White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies


It's January, which around these parts, means that it is so cold that to walk to the store you need long underwear, boots, coat, mittens, and a scarf long enough to wind around your entire head.  Seriously, though, it was twenty degrees here yesterday and I breathed a sigh of relief for the heat wave.

I have lived in this area for my whole life, but haven't been a city dweller in quite some time so I am feeling rudely awakened by the inability to acquire some milk without having to risk frostbite to my nose in the process.

Consequently, I have taken to drinking an afternoon cup of coffee.  Something warm to take the chill out of my bones.  Naturally, something sweet to go with my afternoon coffee was a must.  A rich shortbread cookie infused with matcha powder and studded with creamy white chocolate?  Yes, that will do the trick.


Green Tea and White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Matcha powder*
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Beat butter an sugar together until light and fluffy.  Mix in matcha powder and vanilla.  Mix in flour until just combined.  Fold in white chocolate chips.  Drop by the tablespoonful onto a greased (or parchment covered) cookie sheet.  Bake 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.  Allow to cool and enjoy!

*Matcha is green tea powder.
