Matcha Cookies - Matcha almond cookies - Eggless Matcha Cookies Recipe - Cookie Recipe - Baking recipes

I am a big fan of Matcha tea in fact any dish with it. I love the flavour and aroma of it in the cookies. Knowing my taste my colleagues in China always send me few boxes of green tea / green tea cookies (so thoughtful of them). I wanted to try making it myself. I know a couple of my friends like Matcha too. Every time I travel I wanted to bake some and gift it to them but due to one or other reason that didn't happen till now. This time finally I made it and they enjoyed it.
