IMG_4288

Lately , I have been bit by the ” You can do it ” bug , and it’s mostly related to everything pertaining to food and art. The moment something catches my attention , I want to give it a go. The green tea cookies from the Tetley Tea Event had such a lasting impression on me , that I had to try it out. ย One can’t help but fall in love with the season when you see lovely charms adorning the beautiful coniferous trees.The Christmas effect and the cold evenings only make it more easier for me to bake these Green Tea Cookies. I have adapted the recipe to make it Paleo compliant.

The recipe is very simple to make and is hassle-free. So if you do want to try something really unique this winter , try these crunchy and healthy Green Tea Cookies.

Ingredients:

  1. 120 gms Arrowroot Powder
  2. 3 Tablespoons Honey
  3. 2 Green Tea bags or 2 Teaspoons Green Tea leaves.
  4. 1 Tablespoon Butter
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  7. 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  8. 5 to 6 almonds. ( Optional )

Procedure:

  1. Firstly empty the green teaย bags and pulse then into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle.
  2. Mix the Arrowroot powder , green tea powder , baking powder and salt. Combine them well.
  3. Add the vanilla essence , honey and butter to the dry mixture and mix all the contents well.
  4. Make small 1 inch rounds of the dough and set them aside.
  5. Line up a baking tray with some Baking paper and pat the cookie dough flat. ( Ensure that you leave about an Inch space between each cookie )
  6. Toast the almonds on low heat for a minute or two. Coarsely grind them.
  7. Sprinkle the coarse almond powder on the cookies.
  8. Pre-heat your oven at 180C/350F.
  9. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes or until they turn light brown.

Note:

Do not expect these cookies to turn out to be extremely sweet. The taste has a bitter-sweet effect to it. So if you would like it sweet do try it with more honey and increase the proportion of all the flour accordingly.

    • Ha ha ๐Ÿ™‚ Priya , i’m giving all forms of Indian traditional/ folk art a try these days ๐Ÿ™‚ I know it’s a huge task , but it was an art project goal I set for 2014 with a hope to not let the creative side get dormant. Had a go at the Mysore Paintings , then some Warli art. Hoping to get back to painting. I also tried the Digital art , and in the loop of getting inspired , I bumped into your blog and was so amazed looking at your illustrations ๐Ÿ™‚ What about you? Do you limit only to digital media or any other form for illustrations etc ?
