Looking for something to end each meal on a sweet note during the Lenten vacation? It takes only a few steps and ingredients to make these simple, buttery and toothsome cookies subtly flavored with green tea. Even the kids will enjoy making these easy-to-do cookies with their siblings or friends.
“It is the hip version of lengua de gato,” says chef Dorothy MJ Ferreria. “It has the same buttery taste and mouthfeel with a hint of green tea which is a popular flavor in desserts today.”
The green tea powder is readily available in most Japanese stores. These delicate cookies, which get their crunchy texture from nuts, practically melt in your mouth.
“Pistachio nuts give the cookie gorgeous texture and crunch,” adds Ferreria, who holds private cooking, baking and cake decorating tutorials (Tel. 9618682).
The cookies are ideally served with warm milk or hot coffee while enjoying the holidays with the whole family.
