These Matcha Almond cookies are shortbread cookies. The cookies are crispy, buttery and rich in Matcha flavour. White chocolate chips gives it a sweet edge to tone down the Matcha’s bitterness. Its vivid green colour is also a pleasure to the eyes, perfect to serve it to your guests! Or for us, munching on it whilst working! Just can’t stop at one…
