These tasty little cups of joy were really easy to make, I just wish they weren’t so farty looking. Watch the video tutorial I made and find out what I nicknamed them 😉
I had some hiccups in the video – but I think you can avoid them with the handy-dandy instructions I wrote up for you.
The cheesecakes on Jo Cooks came out so vibrant and beautifully green, and mine look like farts. I’m a little bummed about it, but I think I’ll get over it because these were tasty!
Also – making Green Tea lattes are pretty bomb too, so there’s some tasty drinks to make to use up some of the rest of your matcha after you’re done making these!
Do you like green tea? I’m a matcha junkie right now, so if you are going to bake cheesecakes, hit up David’s tea for some matcha powder and go crazy 🙂
Matcha Green Tea Cheesecakes (and a video!) Recipe
By March 4, 2015Published:
- Yield: 12 Individual Cheesecakes (1 Servings)
- Cook: 20 mins
Nobody’s perfect - but this recipe is pretty great. Enjoy!
- 1 cup oreo crushed
- 2 tbsp butter melted
- 16 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs room temperature
- 2 tbsp matcha powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350° F!
- (for the crust) Mash up or buy crushed oreo cookies (creme filling is okay if you’re home mashing!) & mix them with the melted butter
- Grease your cupcake/mini cheesecake pan and press down the cookie crumbs to form a crust. Bake for 7 minutes, until set!
- (For the cheesecake) Whip up your cream cheese, to get rid of the lumps first!
- Add the sugar to the cream cheese, mix.
- Then the eggs and vanilla! Mix!
- And now the matcha. Be careful, this powder is very fine and will puff up if you’re not paying attention!
- By now your crusts should be basically cooled - regrease the pan (if necessary) so your cheesecakes don’t stick to the sides, and pour in your cheesecake mixture.
- Bake for ~20 minutes
- Chill for ~3 hours, and then eat!
