Frog-Shaped Matcha White Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are soft, have a slight chew, have crispy edges, and are so, SO good.
I used slightly less brown/granulated sugars than my usual recipes to account for how sweet the white chocolate is, which balances PERFECTLY with the bitterness of the matcha! They're a favorite amongst my friends—you definitely need to try them soon!

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour (160g, $0.23)
  • 1 tbsp matcha ($0.80)
  • ½ tsp baking soda ($0.01)
  • ½ tsp salt ($0.01)

Wet ingredients:

  • ½ cup melted unsalted butter, cooled (1 stick butter/8 tbsp, $1.25)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed (50g, $0.27)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (100g, $0.19)
  • 1 egg ($0.17)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ($0.42)

Mix-ins:

  • ½ cup white chocolate chips (85g, $1.31)

Decorations for face:

  • melted milk chocolate for the eyes + smile
  • melted white chocolate for the blush (optional)

Instructions

  • Place oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper/silicone mat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, matcha, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter and both sugars until combined.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract to the bowl. Whisk until it comes together.
  • Dump in all of the dry ingredients and white chocolate chips. Fold together using rubber spatula until no dry flour remains.
  • Use cookie scoop to gather dough (about 1.5-2 tablespoons each) and roll into a ball. This will be the frog's head. For each of the eyes, take about 1/4 tsp of dough (without any white chocolate chips mixed into it), roll it into a ball, and place it on top of the head.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes, until edges are slightly browned. Remove from oven.
    Allow to cool on sheet for at least 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
  • Place melted chocolate into small piping bags and cut a small tip. Pipe on facial features.
    *If you don't have piping bags, you can use ziploc bags and cut the tip off of one corner.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Store cookies at room temp in airtight container for up to 5 days.
