I’m not sure if you knew how many different Kit Kat flavored there are, but there are a TON! My husband loves Asian food more than anyone I know, so when I spotted Green Tea Kit Kats at our local Japanese market I had to try them. Even though I’m not huge into green tea flavored anything, these are so good.
After I bought our third bag of these guys, I had to figure out something to make with them. I thought the flavor would go great with white chocolate, so I made cookies with these as the add-ins. The cookie is chewy with a slightly crisp edge. With the crunch of the candy bar plus the green tea & white chocolate, they are like no cookies I’ve had before. I even added a dollop of left-over vanilla buttercream between 2 cookies and made a whoopie pie… it was my favorite!
- 2 cups All-purpose Flour
- 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon baking Soda
- ½ teaspoon Salt
- ¾ cup Unsalted Butter
- ¾ cup Brown Sugar
- ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Green Tea Kit Kats (chopped)
- ½ cup White Chocolate Chips
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda & salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter for 2 minutes (paddle attachment). Add sugars to butter & beat on medium-high speed for 3 minutes. Add egg & vanilla, continue to beat for another 3 minutes. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into wet, scraping the sides as you go (make sure the batter is moistened before turning mixer back on). Mix slowly until just combined. Add in both the chopped Kit Kats and chocolate chips, and fold in by hand.
- Cover & chill for AT LEAST 1 hour to overnight (up to 2 days).
- Once batter is chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 2 large cookie sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
- Scoop batter onto sheets with a medium cookie scoop, spaced a few inches apart
- Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until tops set (9 minutes seems to be perfect - the inside may look slightly undercooked, but will finish cooking on the baking sheet).
- Remove from oven & leave them on the cookie sheets for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
