When I posted the Matcha Roll recipe, I received a few requests from readers asking me to share more green tea (matcha) recipes. Matcha as an ingredient in baking has become increasingly popular, especially for people who are partial to Japanese cuisine. I personally love matcha: its powdery texture, earthy fragrance and aroma, and the subtle nuance it lends to the key ingredients, for example: matcha ice cream, matcha rolls, and in this case, matcha cookies.
So, when you are in the mood of making cookies and wanted to dress up your cookies with a little something, I strongly recommend adding matcha to your recipe. Just a tablespoon of the magical green powder and your cookies will taste so much different, and better. For my matcha cookies recipe, I kicked it up a notch by adding some almond slices. The end result is two dozens of gorgeously baked green-color matcha cookies that are supremely buttery, flaky, yet crunchy with the almond. They are perfect nibbles on warm summer days, perhaps with some matcha ice cream on the side.
Do you use Matcha in your baking? If so, I would love to learn from you. If you have savory recipes for Matcha, please also share your ideas by commenting below. Thank you!
