Green tea Dacquoise: Delicious sandwich cookies

For my sister, she loves everything with the buttercream, ^^. So, after I decided to make the butter cream  from "................................" I need something to accompany it, haha. 
Actually, my sister asked me why don't I use the Matcha macaron from the same book, I have to say that I want to try  "Green tea Dacquoise" from the book ................... too. Because my friend once told me that it tastes so good, I must give it a try. But I have so many things to try, haha. So it took me a long long time, until I'm ready to make this one.
The Dacquoise can be used as a cake layer, or as a cookies on its own ^^ (the amount of the ingredients will be different, depends on the texture of the dacquoise that you want). Mostly it made from egg whites, sugar, icing sugar and almond. The one that I made this time, seems like a rustic kind of macaron (in my own opinion, hehe) but it's a lot easier to make and it gives you more mouthful feeling and less sweet than macaron too.
You can add many kinds of flavor into the dacquoise batter, or in the buttercream, with your imagination, the variety that you can create is endless.
This time I had a chance to use my dacquoise mold, that I got it for almost 2 years by now, haha. I already told you that I love to collect all the kitchen gadgets and equipment, but I don't want to keep it "I want to use them ALL!" But if you don't want to  buy the mold , just pipe your dacquoise into a disc, it will be great too. 
The dacquoise will be done when it's puff, soft on the inside and firm on the outside, don't bake it too long or it will be hard. Finally I did it, the Green tea Dacquoise, and if you ask me is it as good as my friend said, I have too say, "very good!", now it's your turn to try it too ^^.
