Matcha Green Tea Cream Filled Sugar Cookies, #Creative Cookie Exchange

Time to celebrate! Spring is stepping into our vanilla snow covered world...(With the exception of a few tropical spots on planet Earth.) I've filled sugar cookies with green tea matcha cream and created another reason to celebrate! 


For the cookies:

  • 1 package of sugar cookies mix
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • Colored sugar 

For the matcha cream:

  • 5 tablespoons softened butter
  • 4 ounces ( ½ package of) cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons French Vanilla organic half and half
  • 2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder
  • 1 cup white chocolate powder (Like the cocoa sold at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf)

For the cookies:
Follow directions for cut out cookies on the package. If there are none, add one tablespoon of flour along with the egg and butter. However, there is no need to roll out the dough. Shape into small balls and flatten with the bottom of a sugar covered glass. 

Tip: The sugar will adhere better to the glass if the bottom is slightly moistened with water.

For the matcha cream:
Beat together the butter and cream cheese until well combined.

Pour in half and half and matcha.

Add white chocolate powder.

Slather on the bottoms of the cookies to make matcha cream cookie sandwiches.
