Green Cake Cookies

Green cake cookies are a delightful treat that can be made using green food coloring or natural ingredients like matcha powder for a vibrant green color.

Here’s a simple recipe to make green cake cookies:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Green food coloring or matcha powder
  • Sprinkles or decorations (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  2. Cream butter and sugar: In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer or stand mixer.

  3. Add egg and vanilla: Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.

  4. Combine dry ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

  5. Mix wet and dry ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms.

  6. Add green color: If using green food coloring, add a few drops to the dough and mix until the desired shade of green is achieved. If using matcha powder, sift it into the dough and mix until evenly distributed.

  7. Form dough balls: Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart.

  8. Flatten cookies: Use the bottom of a glass or your fingers to gently flatten each dough ball into a cookie shape.

  9. Decorate (optional): If desired, decorate the cookies with sprinkles or other decorations by pressing them gently into the dough.

  10. Bake: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Be careful not to overbake.

  11. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  12. Enjoy: Once cooled, serve and enjoy your delicious green cake cookies!

These cookies are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas, or any occasion when you want to add a pop of green to your dessert table. Experiment with different shades of green and decorations to make them your own!
