I've always been a sucker for matcha (green tea) cookies.
Until now, I never even considered trying to make them myself. Instead, I would purchase them at specialty bakeries, usually Japanese or Taiwanese.
However, when Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program called for bloggers to participate in the GLAD Cookies for Kids Cancer cookie exchange, I decided it was time to challenge myself and try my hand at baking these cookies myself.
Of course, I couldn't just make any ordinary cookies.
Not if I'm going to give them away.
Alas, Totoro Matcha cookies were born.
