The 'Food52' blog recently published a recipe for delicate tea cookies made from powdered matcha. This time of year, many people are whipping up decadent desserts covered with sickeningly sweet toppings. These delicate butter cookies provide a lighter option when it comes to Christmas baking.

The delicate green tea cookies are made using traditional baking ingredients and powdered matcha. The more powder is added, the stronger and more flavorful the cookie batter becomes. As a result, the cookies have a distinctly bitter green tea taste that perfectly complements the buttery undertones. Ultimately, the cookies provide a delicious alternative to heavier Christmas confections.

With their subtle sweetness and soft texture, the beautiful tea biscuits make the perfect addition to any Christmas cookie platter.
