  • ¼ C salted butter room temperature
  • C granulated sugar
  • ½ beaten egg room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract decrease amount if you don't like it too strong
  • 2 teaspoon matcha
  • ¾ C all-purpose flour


  • 25 g white chocolate chopped
  • 1 candy cane crushed


  • In a stand mixer bowl, add in the butter and sugar and cream until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the beaten egg, vanilla and peppermint extract and beat until everything is incorporated.
  • Sift in the matcha and flour and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Dump the mixture onto a large piece of parchment paper and form into a disc. Wrap up the disc tightly with the parchment paper and place into the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the disc to ¼" inch thickness and cut out shapes using a round cookie cutter.
  • Place the cut-out cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the cookies at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before decorating.
  • Melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for about 20-30 seconds. Use a spoon to drizzle the white chocolate over the cookies and decorate with crushed candy cane.
  • Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
