Green Tea Cookies

Of course, the Japanese versions of anything are always healthy, and that even applies to dessert! Ground green tea leaves is called matcha, and the actual leaves have 100 times more antioxidants that in a cup of green tea. And it’s said to boost metabolism—maybe that will counteract the calories in these cookies!


  • Prep Time : 12 min
  • Cook Time : 12 min
  • Ready Time : 24 min


8 cookies


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground green tea leaves (matcha)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup margarine


Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a food processor, pulse together flour, sugars, tea leaves, and salt. Add margarine, and pulse until a dough is formed. If necessary, add 1 teaspoon water at a time to make dough come together. Form into a 2-inch round log in wax or parchment paper, and roll until smooth. Freeze for 20 minutes.

Once chilled, slice into ¼-inch slices and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until just browning on the edges, about 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Can be made up to 2 days in advance.

  1. These cookies look fantastic. I really need to use green tea more – outside of drinking it.
