Green tea, almond & white chocolate cookies

My love for matcha is no secret. It inspired me to create muffin and smoothie recipes, and now cookies.

My boyfriend likes to call them green tea Bear Paws, since they remind him of the cookies. But believe me, the taste is quite unique!

The matcha and almond extract are a bit pricey. However, it’s not so bad when you consider they’ll keep for a long time (the matcha in the fridge) and that you only need a little bit at a time.
