Matcha Cranberry Cookies 抹茶蔓越莓饼干

At first, I was thinking to make Matcha  Dragon Cookies for my 1st post of Chinese New Year cookies. Since this year is a Snake year, so thinking to add matcha to become green and look like snake skin colour.

Due to i added too much of matcha powder, it was hard to pipe out the dragon shape. So i tried to roll into small rod and shape it like dragon, but it became look like snake, LOL ! Anyway, i decided to cut it using flower shape cutter, because I scare the snake shape (one of the animal that i scare the most !!) hahaha..
I also decided to add some dried cranberries to enhance the taste.

Anyway, this cookie turned out not bad though, very strong green tea aroma with slighly bitter taste and tasted not over sweet..Adults might like this cookie..

Sonie,
我本人觉得吼!抹茶总是蛮欺负別人吃的。。但看见你家这抺茶蔓越莓饼干就冲动想做起来。也想参考游戏~但自己又有接到蛮多年饼订单,所以有空上来只能看看不能行动尝试的漂亮饼干。

Hi Sonia,

I have tried making this cookie on Saturday....however, maybe I put too much butter or my butter melted easily cos the end dough was a bit sticky, so I added more flour then my cookie turned out powdery....maybe will try again this weekend. But my hubby likes it! Thank you for the recipe

Last but not least, may I ask if can I just replace the flour to just plain flour?

Phoebii

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Phoebii, if you replace the flours with plain flour, i guess the texture will become difference, maybe more coarse. I am not sure, you can try it and see which type your prefer..
