Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil or any light vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 pkg Aiya Matcha Sweetened Matcha To Go or use 1 ½ teaspoon pure matcha powder + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 25 g white chocolate melted
  • ½ C + 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon powdered sugar

Instructions

  • In a medium glass bowl, combine the oil, egg, vanilla, sugar, Aiya Matcha Sweetened Matcha To Go in a bowl and whisk together.
  • In a small bowl, melt the white chocolate and let it cool slightly.
  • Add the melted white chocolate to the egg mixture and stir to incorporate.
  • Next, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula until a dough is formed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place the dough into the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Add the granulated sugar to a small bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, do the same with the powdered sugar.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and use a tablespoon or a small ice cream scoop to form balls. Roll the balls to make them smooth. Try to do this quickly as the dough can be a little sticky.
  • Dip each dough ball into the granulated sugar and coat well. Ensure that no cookie dough is peeking through. Then repeat with the powdered sugar.
  • Place the coated dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.
  • Bake at 350°F/177°C for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack.
  • Crinkle cookies are best enjoyed within a few days. Store the cookies in an airtight container up to 3 days.
