Well, we finally finished up that batch of chocolate chip cookies, so last night I made some of the Green Tea Sweets that I was telling you about. They are very much like a matcha flavored shortbread, but much less fussy to make. The butter and egg yolks gives them a very rich flavor which is lightened considerably by the fresh green tea flavor.
One note on my cookies -- I didn't have a cute little leaf cookie cutter, so I used what I had. I needed something small-ish and without a lot of apendages that could lead to overcooked cookie parts. The cookie cutters I ended up using are probably twice as large as what I needed. This was confirmed when I only got a bakers dozen out of the recipe instead of the 25 cookies it is supposed to yield. I just cooked them a bit longer -- maybe 5 minutes -- and all was well. I like the crispier edges though, so I'll pick up a small cookie cutter before I make these again.
They were quick and easy to make and I highly recommend them! The recipe is here at Lovescool.
