Many of you say your favorite videos are the Cookie of the Month and it’s easy to see why! Cookies are an equalizer; we all love them and we all can make them. This month’s cookie incorporates matcha green tea powder – it’s kind of a craze currently – and while in a cookie, the health benefits are probably negated, the flavor definitely is not! This is a fun cookie that is unique but still one that everyone will love. Not to mention the green color makes these perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations!
As will most cookies, these freeze so well in an airtight container for up to three months. But trust me, they won’t last that long!
