Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Using a hand-held mixer, blend together the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and salt. Mix into the butter mixture.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and matcha powder. Mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix.
  • Use a small cookie scoop, about 1 tablespoon in size, to scoop the cookie batter into even portions. Roll into balls and roll into the confectioner's sugar until well coated.
  • Place the dough on the baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately transfer to a wire cooling rack to completely cool.
