A wonderful recipe from the blog " une deux senses " for soft chewy cookies with matcha green tea chips. This is the second time I've shared a recipe from Michelle's blog, last time it was " Green Tea & Strawberry cupcakes ". Notice a theme ?

Chewy Matcha Chip Cookies
Yields: 24 - 30 cookies

For the cookies
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 tbsn. strong-brewed green tea
2 cups matcha chips

For the matcha chips:
2 cups white chocolate chips
2 tbsn. matcha powder

To make the matcha chips, carefully melt the white chocolate over a double boiler, making sure not to burn it. Once smooth, whisk in the matcha powder until smooth. Transfer to a piping bag and pipe into 'chips' onto a piece of foil. Allow to harden completely, about 1 hour or you can speed this up in the freezer.

To make the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until very smooth and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and green tea. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients until well combined. Fold in the matcha chips carefully. Roll rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, then place on the prepared cookie sheet, about 1 1/2" apart. Use your palm to press them down slightly. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cool completely on a rack.
