Comedian and recent relationship guru Steve Harvey refers to sex as “the cookie” because according to him, “Everybody likes cookies. That’s the thing about a cookie. I like oatmeal raisin…but if you’ve got vanilla cream, I’ll eat that too.”
I couldn’t agree with him more. Cookies are my sweet indulgence of choice and I can never eat just one. Another weakness of mine is anything with green tea, which explains the title of this blog. So when my sister told me about this Green Tea Shortbread Cookie recipe, I just knew it would be perfection!

I love how the cookies look with the leaf cookie cutter but if you don’t own one, here’s what I did. Take an empty aluminum foil box and line it with parchment paper (so the dough doesn’t stick) and then press the dough into the box. Carefully pull out the long rectangular dough with the parchment paper and refrigerate it. After it hardens a bit, cut the dough into slices so they are little squares. It’s actually a lot faster/easier than rolling it out and cutting each cookie out of the dough separately.
