Matcha Meltaway Cookies
Queenie, who comes up with the best matcha recipes for this blog, came up with this adorable mini matcha lemon meltaway cookie recipe. It goes so great with green tea — hot or cold.
I’m warning you now, these cookies are highly addictive so make them at your own risk. They’re tiny, but pack a sugary, lemony, matcha punch.

What We Used to Make Matcha Lemon Meltaway Cookies
Look how vibrant green the dough is!
Get good quality matcha to get a nice bright green color. The higher the matcha quality, the brighter and more vibrant the green.
Having said that, don’t get the super expensive matcha since the subtle flavors will be wasted in a recipe.
Each matcha cookie is made the same size by using a measuring spoon and formed into a ball.
The hardest part is waiting for the cookie dough to chill in the fridge before they get popped in the oven.
Don’t get me started on my new addiction to matcha sugar.
The recipe calls for a tad more matcha sugar than needed since you want enough to get an even coat, but don’t worry, you can use that same matcha sugar to sweeten your matcha drinks.
The recipe makes a whopping 100 of these mini cookies but you don’t have to make them all at once. The unbaked dough can be stored in the freezer until your next tea gathering.
