Thank you for this recipe-this has become one of my favorite cookies! The matcha, white chocolate, and lemon go so well together! I added an extra 40 grams of flour- I noticed comments mentioning a cakey texture and I was craving something chewier- and that seemed to do the trick. The first time I made them I misread the recipe and added the 1/2 cup of granulated sugar to the dough along with the brown sugar but I actually liked the way that turned out, so I've kept doing it.

I made these for a cookie swap and they are so good! For a less sweet cookie: I didn't have white chocolate so substituted it with bittersweet chocolate and didn't dip them in sugar at the end. This is a wonderful way to incorporate matcha into a cookie, thank you!

A great recipe! For my first tray, I scooped out dough with a spoon. The irregular cookies were fragile. I shaped the rest of the dough into a log, stuck it in the fridge for 20 mins, and then cut circular slices that baked uniformly and were easier to roll in matcha sugar. The cookies reminded me of a sophisticated version of a cookie popular in my childhood called Lemon Coolers.

Made these exactly as written and they're as delicious as everyone else said! Took them to a St. Patty's green themed dinner and they were a big hit. They weren't the shade of green in the photo however- more of a dusky green. Not sure if the photo has been color edited or if my matcha powder is a different kind?? They looked like little moss covered pebbles and were not unattractive. I'll make these again.

These were wonderful! Made the full recipe and got 60 cookies out of the batch (using my smallest ice cream scoop). They're more delicate than I expected, cakey not crisp. But delicious. The ladies at the hair salon swooned over them, as did my neighbor. I will make them again, even if it's not St. Patrick's Day.

I'm kind of angry about how good these are. Halved the recipe because I didn't want 50 cookies on my hand, which was a pain with the egg yolk, but I made a mistake because can there ever really be too many matcha-flavored cookies in this world? Between the taste (delicious) and appearance (pretty/unique), I think I've found a new party trick.
