I looove the flavour of matcha, so with St. Patrick's Day coming up I thought it would be a great time to try adding it to some cookies - only using half of my dough in case they weren't to my liking. Luckily (or not), they turned out to be so moreish that I have had a hard time keeping my hands off them.
The recipe is the same as the one for yesterday's Sugar Cookies, just omitting the vanilla and adding 1-1.5 tbsp matcha green tea powder. I ended up adding about 2 tbsp extra butter to this version to add a little extra moisture. For the icing, I added 1 tsp matcha powder to 1 cup icing sugar and 1-2 tbsp water.
That's my dad rolling below... I always try to pass off any kneading/rolling required because I'm lazy.
