Green Tea Cookies (Vegan)
I did it! I did it! If you have kids you probably know the We did it song from Dora the explorer After 3 batches and 1 pound of butter ruined I baked the first Vegan Sugar Cookies!! I did it! I did it!!
Ever since I read Ann Gentry cookbook and discovered the vegan butter I've been dreaming to make cookies that were cholesterol free. Being away for 3 weeks set my plans back a little but now, since I'm the Queen of my Kitchen again I can experiment as much as I want. 
My local groceries carry two types of vegan butter : Smart Balance Light - butter spread  (not good for baking) and Earth Balance Sticks.  
Green Tea Cookies (Vegan)
If you ever bought a package of vegan butter you probably noticed it doesn't harden as a regular butter, not even after you freeze it. For me that was a challenge since I usually make my cookie dough in the food processor. The blades simply cream the butter even if I pulse just 2-3 times. Back to basics, make the dough by hand in a bowl. 
I was looking for a sugar cookie, crisp on the edges and soft inside. And not just that, a cookie with an Asian touch, a green tea cookie. 
The first two batches were a complete disaster, I'm too ashamed to even show photos of my ginormous sugar cookie that spread during baking. 
The third batch cookies were delicious, but managed to burn them a little. My bad, I know. 
The forth batch and the last one was a 110% success. Crisp and soft, and the powdered green tea added to the dry ingredients give them a little something to make you grab the second and maybe even the third cookie. After all I used green tea which is known as a weight loss supplement. Imagine what a life would be eating these cookies while losing weight. I'd be the skinniest one!!
