- Serving: 40 cookies
- Bake time: 8 minutes (16 minutes total)
- 2.75 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1.5 cup white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Reserve: 1 Tbsp matcha powder
Step 1: Measure the ingredients.
Step 2: Melt the butter in the microwave for one minute.
Step 3: Mix ingredients for Bowl A.
Step 4: Mix ingredients for Bowl B.
Step 5: Pour Bowl A flour mixture into Bowl B wet mixture and blend well.
Step 6: Divide the dough into two balls. And add the matcha powder into one of the ball. Knead the dough until the matcha powder is blended into the cookie dough.
Step 7: Cover the bowls and set aside for 30 minutes because we used melted butter and it needs to firm up a bit or else the cookies will melt like a blob. (Learned from our mistakes.)
Step 8: Roll the cookie dough into ping pong ball size. I was able to fit and bake 20 cookies on a tray at a time.
Step 9: Bake at 375F for 8 minutes.
Step 10: Top with sprinkles when the cookies are still hot. I pressed the cookies down lightly to create more creases for the sprinkles to stay put. Let the cookies cool down before decorating with the icing.
