Matcha Matcha Woman
I apologize for relative silence round these here parts.
Truth is, not much is going on.
It's hotter than hell outside leaving baking to a minimum.
The only thing on my needles right now is a black sweater which is lame to try to photograph.
My sewing machine could use some tinkering around with and I'm just not in the mood. But I did do some back up work for Big Name Sewing Machine Company Attorney this week and I slipped him the Big Name Sewing Machine model I've been eyeballing. Hee hee!
However, one of my
I flipped through my recipe books trying to find a cookie that spoke to his inner-dessert and I think I found it.
Matcha is a powdered Japanese green tea.
What you see in the picture above is NOT true matcha. I didn't find this out until I got home.
Yes, I realize that the label says it's not true matcha. I had a Mooch with me at the store.
I was a bit miffed because I had to make a special trip to Wholier Than Thou Foods to purchase what I thought was matcha. Ends up it's a green tea/match blend.
No worries. I just ground up the tea to a fine powder in the old baby food grinder I used for Mooch and Chunky before they grew a mouthful of chompers.
I was afraid these cookies would fall hard.
Not bad! Despite the fact my camera sucks and these cookies look totally nastacular, they're a light green color and a nice balance of chewy-crispy.
They don't really taste like green tea though. But like Dr. Mad Scientist pointed out, they're like sugar cookies--but with anti oxidants!
Bonus points to anyone who can tell me what TV show that mug is from. I've been lusting after a Fire King Jade-ite Standard D-Handle mug for a while and finally found one for less than $20. Yeah, yeah, I know. I had some birthday money to spend.
