Matcha Green Tea Holiday Wreath Cookies

The Zen of the Japanese tea ceremony is delivered in the Ninja Baker's matcha cookies. Just as a sweet is offered with green tea in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, powdered sugar in the cookie dough balances the slightly bitter green tea powder...And produces a perfectly delicious cookie!

  • 1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2½ tablespoons matcha green tea powder
  1. Knead the sugar and matcha green tea powder into the dough. (Plastic gloves help to keep your hands free of green.)
  2. Between wax paper, roll out the matcha sugar cookie dough.
  3. Cut out circles with a biscuit cutter.
  4. With a smaller circle, punch out a smaller circle in the centers.
  5. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets and freeze overnight.
  6. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 12 minutes.
  7. When the cookies come out of the hot oven, reinforce the center circles. Press on the M & Ms.
