I have to admit – this isn’t the first time that we have tried baking these Matcha Crinkles. The first one wasn’t so successful. We were kind of scared in the amount of matcha powder because it smells so potent. And so we put in just a teaspoon, maybe even less, and we put in some cocoa powder too. The result were usual-looking crinkles, soft and chewy, dark-colored with sugar sprinkles on the top, strong cocoa flavor but with a subtle hint of green tea upon tasting. I am not complaining! It was actually yummy only that no one would believe me if we posted it here and tagged it as Match Crinkles. In another post, maybe, we would love to share Matcha-Kissed Chocolate Crinkles!
But back to Matcha Crinkles.
Since we failed the first time, we decided to search for a recipe online and we found Miss Hangrypants: Matcha Crinkle Cookies! We just adapted the recipe and it’s actually pretty good! We had these green yummy crinkles that isn’t overpowering at all. As an acquired-matcha-lover myself, these are perfect to satisfy those matcha needs. If you’re only starting to like matcha, these will make you love it!
As always, let us know when you get the chance to try this! 🙂
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 2 pcs Eggs, at room temperature
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
- 1 tbsp. Matcha Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/2 cup Confectioner’s Sugar
- In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, matcha powder, baking powder and the salt.
- In a pot over low heat, melt the white chocolate chips.
- In a separate bowl, stir in the melted white chocolate into the mixture of sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs. Mix until well incorporated.
- Cover with a plastic and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- Line baking pan with a silicone mat or baking paper.
- Prepare a shallow bowl with powdered sugar. Roll about 2tsp of dough into a ball with your palms and drop into powdered sugar. Roll around powdered sugar to coat fully. Place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
- Place pan in the fridge for a bit while you preheat the oven to 350F. Once the oven is ready, bake for 11-14mins or until the edges barely get a little golden. Immediately remove the cookies from the pan.
- Place the crinkles in a cooling rack for about 5 mins. Your matcha crinkles are ready when cooled. Enjoy! 🙂
