Matcha, and more specifically, matcha cookies, have been traveling through cyberspace and uniting people around the world. All starting with a common recipe, and a goal to make something special for friends and family.
I posted the recipe for our green tea (a.k.a. matcha) tea sweets last June, and since then I have been watching bloggers make their own versions of the cookies. I had no idea the recipe would circulate like it did, and it has been amazing to watch the variations and personal touches everyone has added. Many tried using different teas, and even espresso, which I think is a great idea. To say thank you to all of those creative chefs out there, I thought I’d post a wrap-up of the ones I could find. I encourage you to explore each of the sites to see what else these bloggers from around the world have done.
