Failed matcha lemongrass shortbread star-flower things. Lolo's recipe, with flavor modifications and 1/2 c. of cornstarch subbed for the equivalent of flour. I went a little too subtle on the flavoring and they taste like lightly sweetened flour. Maybe the bitterness in the tea neutralized some of the sweetness? The texture is to die for though!

Good basic recipe. Hopefully you'll have more luck than I did. Also, do yourself a favor and use a less intricate cookie cutter. (For sharp looking cookies, chill the dough before rolling, cut and arrange on cookie sheet, and pop the whole thing in the freezer for a minute or two. It'll help them from losing their shape.)



More cute than tasty.
