White Chocolate Matcha Cookies

Updated: Mar 15

I had many failed attempts in making cookies; too hard, too soft, spread out too much resulting too thin or didn't spread out enuff resulting too thick. Nonetheless, even the failed ones tasted awesome. I am a cookie person and would literally trade a whole cake for a chocolate chips cookie. Without all those failed attempts, I wouldn't be able to find the right recipe.

The cookies are at the right size with the right thickness and you guess it, a fudgy interior. That is how I love my cookies. They are crispy, yet chewy with that matcha aroma which lingers at the back of your mouth, then you get to the white chocolate bits which just elevates the flavors even more. This isn't your usual average sugary cookies

I am using unbleached all purpose flour. I find that using unbleached all purpose flour not only will have more structure during the final baking process, it also creates that fudgy interior too. Pls, try to get your hands on unbleached all purpose flour. A good grade of matcha powder is very essential as it is the star of this recipe. I am using a combination of 3 different types of sweeteners to create more depth in flavors. I measured all the ingredients even the eggs to ensure consistency every single time I make these cookies. Maybe it is about time you invest in a weighing scale? Without much delay, let's get started with the recipe.
