Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookie


113 Grams unsalted butter

105 Grams of white sugar

1 Egg

1 Teaspoon vanilla

114 Grams all-purpose flour

13 Grams matcha powder

Half a teaspoon of baking soda

Half a teaspoon of sea salt

White chocolate chips


1. To start off, let’s brown the butter. In a saucepan, put the butter on medium heat and bring it to simmer, stirring constantly until a foamy, deep honey colour emerges. We don’t want to burn it, just need to brown it. Cool the butter completely. It will take about an hour. To make the process faster, place it in the fridge.

 2. Cream together browned butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract, and put it aside.

 3. Combine all the dry ingredients.

 4. Gently fold in the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, making sure not to overmix.

 5. Final step, fold in the white chocolate chips.

 6. On a baking tray, scoop your dough onto your tray, and gently push a few extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie, if you like. The batter makes six cookies with a diameter of 9 cm.

 7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 15 to 30 minutes on a cooling rack.


Note: Children must be supervised at all times when cooking or baking even though these recipes are simple to make. Do not leave them unattended when there are dangerous objects near them. Precautions must be taken seriously.
