Green Tea Oatmeal Sugar Cookies
½ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup cane sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp green tea powder
½ cup oatmeal (I used plain instant oatmeal)
¾ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
raisins for garnish
Preheat oven to 375ºF. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs and then vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix: flour, green tea powder, oatmeal, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until dry ingredients appear wet.
Prepare dough into 1 to 1½ inches balls and place onto baking sheet.
Press a raisin (or other dried fruits) on top. Leave about 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
Immediately after removal from the oven, sprinkle some cane sugar on top for a little sparkle (haha). Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
Makes about 18 cookies (about 2½ to 3 inch diameter)
