"Why do I have so many meetings in my calendar?!"
"It means you're important." I responded dryly, fully aware of the frustrations behind these back-to-back virtual events.
1) Matcha Almond Cookies
Modified from the buttery, nutty hearts and bears first attempted some few months ago, I introduced matcha powder and straight edges. They were even stamped for additional flair, not that these designs were carried through the baking process. The Lego-sized pieces also failed to align at right angles, and were observed to spread a teensy bit more than the last iteration.
I awoke to a deceptively sunny Saturday morning with cravings for cake. As with any of my cravings, they were precise, with a distinct image of the final product established in my mind for reference.
Cross-sectional cuts appeared more uniform than before, which was to be expected given the wire whisk to hand mixer swap. However, given its thickness, I would recommend employing a wire whisk (on a good wrist day, of course) to prevent the batter from wrapping about the beaters.
