It’s that time again for a holiday cookie exchange at work! This year, I had coworkers asking me to make the Earl Grey shortbread cookies again – which I did. I also decided to make something new, so I opted to change up a tried-and-true sugar cookie recipe with some matcha. 2 tablespoons of matcha was just enough to give the cookies the matcha flavour, but not too much to be overwhelming. I hope you enjoy baking these matcha sugar cookies!
