Matcha Shortbread Cookies

The search for the perfect crispy wafer cookie continues. My first effort (previously posted) was for a butter wafer – light, not sweet, mostly crispy. Since I am particularly fascinated by the green crispy wafer cookies (green from the Matcha), today I embarked on recipe review and experimentation. The first batch was interesting but I thought a little bitter from the Tablespoon plus of matcha.

I did a couple variations and sprinkled sugar on the surface and on some when I rolled out the dough I pressed in some cocoa nibs. Those were pretty tasty. My second batch was a matcha shortbread cookie. Not the crispy wafer I was looking for but green. And the photo attached to the recipe was pretty wafer-ish looking. These cookies are by far the best of the three types that I have made so far. I will continue the hunt for the perfect wafer but so far these are the winner and I learn so much as I experiment.
