That’s how I feel about these Green Tea Vanilla Bean Almond Crinkle Cookies.

Green tea? I wasn’t a fan. I wasn’t. I didn’t understand the hype around it, why eyes lit up when you mentioned green tea. I mean, it’s not chocolate. Why the hype?

I get it now.

These cookies, yo. I paired matcha powder with vanilla bean, cause I initially thought it safe.

But it’s not.

Did you know? To imitate vanilla you’d need like 26 components, plus some wood pulp. Vanilla, real vanilla is complex. Pairing these cookies with vanilla gives them substance, depth.

I added some slivered almonds for crunch, then I dipped them in confectioners’ sugar. I wanted to see some crinkle action on this blog. It’s how I roll.

These cookies aren’t baked for long, 10 minutes max. They are pillow soft, buttery fine.

If you’re a fan of green tea, you’re going to dig the hell out of these cookies. If you weren’t a fan, these cookies can convert the hardest green tea hater.

Take a chance. No regrets.
