Cookies are one of the easiest desserts to make and everyone loves them. Whether they’re chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, or just plain and simple sugar, cookies are loved by all.

Recently we’ve noticing people are experimenting with putting matcha in their cookie mixes and creating bold new flavours, giving a twist to this all time classic dessert. So today we’d love to share with you a simple, easy, yet super delicious recipe for Matcha + Earl Grey Tea Cookies by the lovely Jenni, aka @jenni_cheechee.

Jenni’s gorgeous cookies recipe is inspired by two different cookies recipes: Matcha Cookies and Earl Grey Tea Cookies.

She combined the two to create something new, cookies flavored with both Matcha and Earl Grey tea - a delightful combo in just one bite!
