The best and brightest green cookie using matcha in case you are looking for a fun st. patrick’s day dessert. I love a fun holiday-themed cookie and the matcha powder makes these very colorful. They are a bit like shortbread in the best possible way.Print
Peppermint Matcha Shamrock Cookies
A green cookie just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! I bought the Matcha Powder at Whole Foods and the addition of Peppermint in both the cookie dough and the glaze makes them the perfect Springtime cookie! And you can adjust the mint flavors by adding as much peppermint as you like!
- 1/2 cup salted butter at room temperature
- 2/3 cup sugar sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 drops Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil or 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract. Decrease amount if you don’t like it too strong.
- 4 teaspoons matcha powder
1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Using a hand or stand mixer, add the butter and sugar and cream until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add in the egg, vanilla, and peppermint vitality essential oil and beat until everything is incorporated.
- Sift in the matcha powder and flour and mix until combined.
- Dump the mixture onto a large piece of parchment paper and form into a disc. Wrap up the disc in parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the disc to ¼” inch thickness and cut out shapes.
- Place cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the cookies at 350°F for 10 minutes. Do not overbake.
- Remove and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before decorating.
- Make a glaze and drizzle over the cookies
Confectioners sugar, peppermint essential oil, and a little water or milk to make a glaze that you can drizzle over the top.

4. I’ll be making this pasta when I return home
Or maybe I should say Brent will be making us a bowl of Spaghetti Pangrottato when we return home the London next week. As soon as I saw it, I saved it. A bowl of spaghetti tangled with seasoned bread crumbs and topped with a crispy fried egg from Smitten Kitchen.
I think I discovered Rachel of @sourdough_enzo at the beginning of the pandemic when we were all making bread. Rachel takes bread-making to an entirely new level. She makes the most beautiful loaves of sourdough bread using the scoring method, and intricate seed designs. On her Instagram, she has highlights with her recipes, tools, tips & tricks, starter care, and shaping. Even if you don’t make bread, watching Rachel making bread is both soothing and entertaining.
