Matcha Green Tea Swirl Cookies

Prep time 30m
Cook Time 13m


  • 1 Cup butter (softened)
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Ujido Matcha Powder


  1. Cream together the butter and sugar in large mixing bowl.

  2. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix.

  3. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, and mix well.

  4. Take out about half the dough, ball it up, wrap in plastic wrap and put aside.

  5. Add the matcha powder to dough remaining in bowl, and mix until color is thoroughly blended.

  6. Ball this dough up, and wrap, as well. Refrigerate the dough for about 15-20 minutes, just enough to stiffen it a little.

  7. Divide each ball in half then roll out into long rectangle. Tuck edges in as they crack, helping the dough to obtaining a relatively uniform shape.

  8. Lay one green over one white and vice versa.

  9. Trim off edges and gently roll dough into a cylinder shape. You should end out with two long dough logs.

  10. Place the dough logs in refrigerator for at least an hour.

  11. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment.

  12. Take out the dough and slice off ¼ inch cookies. Place the cookies on the parchment lined baking sheets.

  13. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Don't over bake! The cookies should not brown at all on top.

  14. Place cookies on rack to cool.
