Matcha Cheesecake

Ingredients

2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon matcha tea powder

2 eggs

1 prepared 9-inch graham cracker crust

Lemon zest curls for garnish (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and matcha tea powder. Beat on medium-high until fluffy and well blended. Reduce speed to medium and add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended.
  2. Pour filling into crust and bake until edges are set but there is still a slight wobble in the middle, about 40 minutes.
  3. Let cool completely at room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  4. Garnish with lemon zest and serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
