Matcha Sugar Cookies

Happy August! August is great because not only is it MY birthday month it is also my fiance’s and his mothers, so we all celebrate together. This year we’ll just be celebrating at home, but I honestly like that just as much. I love cooking a nice meal for family, making a cake, and just the planning involved. I seem to always have food on my mind, and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad? We’ll just say it’s a good thing.

If you are a green tea fan, these cookies are for you. They’re soft and chewy like a good chocolate chip cookie, with a punch of matcha flavor. These cookies are so easy to make, and you can easily find some matcha powder on amazon. Matcha green tea powder is always in my house because you never know when a green tea latte sounds good!

I am so excited it’s the weekend. I have been so busy with work and other projects lately. This weekend I have no obligations, just to relax and hang out with my fiance. We are going to look at wedding bands, a new desk, some bathroom tile, and maybe binge watch something on netflix. I wish you all a happy August and happy weekend!
