Matcha + white chocolate chip cookies!

Hi guyS!!

I'm currently on my winter break so I have a lot of free time to do plenty of me-stuff because

1) I'm jobless
2) I'm jobless
3) I'm jobless

I emphasize on the jobless part because I truly, really, honestly just want a job. But anyways, on the days where I don't do much job-hunting, I see myself searching for stuff to do - I'm no fantastic baker but I thought this simple recipe that I found online was so good that I have to share it!

It was so simple to make as well! Also, do note that this was my 2nd time actually baking something by myself! Usually, I'm the person who does the small and boring tasks so I'm glad to actually bake something by myself!

The first time I baked - the cookies got too hard that my braces bracket actually fell off when I try to take a bite out of them.

Lesson learnt: Cookies will get harder after you let them cool down :P

Here's the recipe for green tea + white chocolate chip cookies!

Best time to use my matcha powder that has been sitting in the shelf for ages! Also, I hate the winter sunlight. It gets dark so fast and my unit doesn't have much sunlight, sadly. I will promise myself to find a place with plenty of sunlight. :) 


Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons green tea powder (matcha)
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and green tea powder. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Stop the mixer and use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla  extract, and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chunks or chips with a spatula. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.
4. Place racks in the center and upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
5. Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking pans, spacing them about 1 1/2-2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven, and allow cookies to cool on pans for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

p/s: if you like sweet stuff, this would be perfect for you! However, I do find it a tad too sweet so you might want to reduce the amount of sugar if you're not a sweet lover.

The matcha cookies come out soft and chewy mmhmm! Just the way I like my cookies :P (coz I have braces duh)
