Green tea snow balls: Little balls of happiness!

 This morning when I waked up there was something strange, there was a magazine laying on the floor and it's very old one. It's about 7 years ago. 

I didn't know what happened. It could fall from the shelf when I took other book out. When I looked at it, it has an interesting topic of the month "Baking with Japanese ingredient" ^^. So I picked it up and start reading again, after 7 years I can't remember anything in the magazine at all.
There are a lot of good recipe that I want to try, they use green tea, chestnut, sesame, kinako, sweet potato and etc. You can see that it's really good and interesting. I like the way they mix the Japanese ingredient into the Western sweet. 
I wonder why I never used all of this recipe before, they seen to be delicious !!!! After thinking (for less than a minutes, hehe), I decided to try some of the Japanese influenced recipes. The recipe that I choose is "Green tea snow balls", because my niece really love to eat green tea flavored sweet (cake, mousse or ice cream, she eats them all), so I will add cookie into the list too, haha. 
After baking and coating it with sugar, I'm so sure that she gonna love it, ^^. For me I serve myself with a cup of tea, the flavor of the green tea will intensify, and with each bite the flavor of it more and more intense, so if you love the green tea flavor, I think you will love this cookies too.
I know that you will think that it's a recipe from the past, but I can to tell you that good recipe never old ^^.

Hi,蓝色小厨
Thank you

Hi, Priya
Thank you

Hi, Yuet
You can use it, by gaining the tea leaves with the flour, and your cookie won't have a bright green color but it will be brown.
