They are perfect dippers, mildly seasoned, and a delight to eat. Enjoy!!

Prep Time: ~25min
Servings: 36 cookies

1 Cup Sugar, granulated
1 Cup Butter, unsalted
1 Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Ginger, Ground
2 Green Tea Bags, finely processed
4 Tbsp Green Tea Reduction, from 3 tea bags
1/3 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a food processor or blender, pulse green tea leaves until a fine "powder"; set aside. In a small saucepan, boil 1 cup of water on medium-high with three green tea bags until reduced to about 1/4 cup; set the green tea "powder" into the bowl with a light stir and set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. Slowly combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and ginger until integrated. Pour in the green tea blend until fully mixed. Scoop heaping spoonfuls about 1" apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, or until edges are browned. Set aside to a cookie sheet to cool.
