20(ish)--- Green Tea Cookies

It took me a while to perfect this recipe. Sorry for the delay. But now it's good. It's really good.

Probably not the MOST NUTRITIOUS way to get your antioxidants. Definitely the tastiest. If you like green tea candy, mochi, and green tea ice cream, these are a must. No, the color has not been enhanced. All NATURAL.

Green Tea Cookies
Makes 24 cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp matcha powder
1/4 cup fine white sugar

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with a handheld mixer for 30 seconds. Add sugar, egg, baking soda, cream of tartar, and matcha powder and beat until well combined, scraping the sides of the bowl. Beat in flour (you may need to mix with a spoon to incorporate evenly. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place 1/4 cup fine sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into one inch balls, then roll in sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
