matcha and cherry chip cookies....!


....so i almost forgot about these cookies since i made them around the holiday rush time....!...but they were really simple and very good...totally post worthy....

....awhile ago i saw these homemade matcha chips and cookies here from une deux senses (beautiful pics on her blog too!)....and since i love anything green tea/made with matcha...knew i had to give them a go....

....i had sweet matcha powder leftover from this post...and added about 1/4 cup to about 2 cups of vanilla candy wafers....(just melt candy wafers or vanilla chips in the microwave until all melty...then dump in the matcha powder and mix well)....

....add to a zip lock bag...snip off an end and "pipe" out the matcha chips.....you may need to re-heat the mix in the microwave if it starts to get to stiff....


....let them set for about 20 minutes or so....and you get a bunch of green tea matcha chips....!...so easy....i'm thinking of doing these "homemade" chips with some other stuff...like other teas or powders....


....mix these in with your favorite cookie batter (i used the original toll house cookie recipe)....

....and the cherrry chips i already had....



....and you get some yummy cookies with homemade matcha chips and not so homemade cherry chips...!

matcha chip and cherry chip cookies

....you definitely get the green tea flavor coming through in these....and if you like green tea you must make these!...and the cherry chip cookies were good too...i kinda liked the red/green thing for christmas time....but i ate many more of the green tea chip cookies than the cherry chip ones...

...can't wait to see the flurry of valentines day goodies coming up....fun stuff....and thanks as always for stopping by....have an awesome week!
