For the single matcha lovers out there: Single serving matcha cookie with creamy white chocolate chips. This cookie is soft and slightly chewy.
Are you a matcha (green tea) lover? I am! I love the slight bitter taste of matcha. Matcha is a very popular flavor in Asia. Last summer, when we were in Tokyo, there wasn’t a single place we couldn’t find a matcha flavored version of anything: lattes, cookies, cakes.. you name it! My bf isn’t a big fan, but I definitely am. Obviously, I couldn’t help myself and create a recipe for a single serving matcha cookie. Matcha is the perfect flavor for single serving recipes, because not everybody loves matcha.
To make this cookie, you’ll need basic cookie ingredients: butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Additionally, you’ll need some matcha powder and chocolate chips. I used white chocolate chips because the creaminess and sweetness of the white chocolate fit perfectly with the bitter flavor of matcha. As for the matcha, I used ½ teaspoon. It will give you plenty of flavor; matcha is strong. If you want, you can add more matcha powder but it the cookie will get quite bitter. Too bitter if you ask me.
