Green Tea Marble Cookies

Green Tea Marble Cookies

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.
William Ewart Gladstone

I can’t believe it has been two years since I’ve made these delightful green tea marble cookies!

I also made other variations using chai and strawberry tea, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take pictures of them before they were consumed.

Why bake it?

These green tea marble cookies are so tasty, so pretty, so easy to make. The flavor from the green tea really shines through. Also, the butter and potato starch ingredients makes for a pretty interesting “shortbread-like” texture. 

Other variations?

The fun part about this is you can practically substitute green tea with whatever powder you want! Cocoa powder, strawberry milk powder, chai tea powder, even espresso or coffee!

If you don’t have tea powder, you can try flavoring your butter with tea, i.e. heat up melted butter with tea leaves on the stove until the butter absorbs its flavor. Then, set it aside in the fridge to cool and substitute this flavored butter in the recipe.

Best paired with?

Since these green tea marble cookies are “tea” cookies, they are best paired with tea.

Happy baking!

Ingredients for plain dough
  1. 1/2 cup of butter
  2. 2 1/2 tablespoon of powdered sugar
  3. 1/2 cup of potato starch (Places like Whole Foods sell them!)
  4. 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
Ingredients for green tea dough
  1. 1/2 cup of butter
  2. 2 1/2 tablespoon of powdered sugar
  3. 1/2 cup of potato starch (Places like Whole Foods sell them!)
  4. 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
  5. 1 tablespoon of green tea powder (Also called "matcha")
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare two bowls for the plain and green tea dough. In each bowl, first cream the butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Then, sift the potato starch and flour. Add the green tea powder for the green tea dough. Mix well.
  3. Divide plain and green tea dough into 4 portions. Separately roll plain and green tea dough into long strips.
  4. Take one teaspoon of plain and green tea dough, roll them into a ball and place into cookie sheet. Gently press dough with your finger.
  5. Bake at preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Let cool for awhile then serve or store in an airtight container.
Notes
  1. Best paired with tea because it is a "tea" cookie and will be on the dry side.
