If You Like Green Tea Ice-Cream…

…then I highly recommend trying the Green Tea Sweets recipe so kindly provided by Kelli of Amai Tea and Bake House!


I heard of Amai’s tea cookies through the blog world quite awhile ago, and I actually purchased a box for my mother-in-law as a gift. But I personally never ate them before. So when I came across the recipe link on Julie’s blog, I was thrilled. I found the matcha (powdered green tea) easily at my local Japanese market, but Kelli provides an online source if you can’t buy it in your area. I couldn’t find a 2″ leaf cookie cutter that I liked on the Internet, so I settled for a 2.5″ heart cutter. The recipe is really easy and when I was combining the ingredients, the scent of the matcha reminded me of green tea ice-cream. The cookies have just the right amount of sweetness, too. This one is definitely, definitely a keeper!!! Thank you for sharing, Kelli!
