  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped pistachios walnuts or white chocolate, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and both types of sugar. Mix in sifted matcha tea powder. Add eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add it to the butter-sugar mixture and beat on low speed until flour is incorporated. Scrape mixing bowl to ensure flour is evenly distributed in the dough. Stir in nuts or chocolate, if using.
  4. Scoop tablespoons of dough and place on baking trays, leaving space in between for cookies to expand.
  5. Bake cookies for about 10 minutes, or until they are no longer shiny on top. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Store cooled cookies tightly covered at room temperature for up to one week or for up to three months in the freezer.
