Watcha’ Your Matcha Honey Sesame Shortbread Cookies

This is far from your average cookie!

– It’s jam packed with Matcha. Matcha = powdered high quality green tea powder = healthy = you can should each more than one 🙂

Slightly Sweetened with Honey, not very sweet at all to be honest … but perfect with a hot cup of hot chocolate or your morning coffee.

Dazzling in a bright green, studded with specks of white sesame seeds.

– More of an adult cookie, as the green tea flavour takes center stage and commands the attention of all. Hold the chocolate, marshmallows and sprinkles this time (… it will be back … I can’t stay away from them :))

Verdict = yumm-tastic for anytime of the day.

Kiddies, get ready to watcha’ your matcha 😀
