I made these DELICIOUS Matcha cookies following Becca’s recipe on Cooking-Therapy.com. They are Brown Butter White Chocolate Matcha cookies, and they are down right scrum-diddly-umptious! The only thing I added was chopped walnuts to the mix. These little green cookies take some patience and time, but they are well worth it! I used Jade Leaf Organic Culinary Matcha for these cookies.

They were the perfect companion to my favorite cup of Ippodo Matcha – Ummon-No-Mukashi. As previously stated before, this is by far my favorite Matcha yet! It’s definitely more of a splurge at $30 for a small tin of 20g, but I surely taste the difference. It’s so rich and creamy with a nice sweetness and zero bitterness. Very delicious and uplifting Matcha!



• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp matcha powder
1 cup unsalted butter
½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs room temperature
1 cup white chocolate chips
½ cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brown your butter. Heat your butter over medium heat until it turns a golden yellow color. Pour butter in a heat proof bowl to cool. As the butter cools, it will get darker in color.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and matcha powder in a medium size mixing bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Next add in white sugar and brown sugar to your butter. Mix to combine. Once well combined, add in your eggs and vanilla. Whisk together. Whisk until you get a light and creamy texture (~1 minute). This is the key to getting a crisp and chewy cookie.
Once the wet ingredients are well mixed, slowly add in the dry ingredients from step 3. Combine with a spatula until a green dough forms.
Add in the white chocolate chips and mix until they are well incorporated.
Let the dough rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Use a 3 tablespoon (1.5 oz) ice cream scoop to scoop cookie dough onto baking sheets. Cookies should be 2-3 inches apart.
Bake for 9-11 minutes.
Let cookies cool for 10 minutes before putting them on a cooling rack.
Cool cookies for another 15 minutes before serving.
