I have a question about the recipe "Spritz Butter Christmas Cookies" from Kendra Vaculin. Would it work to sub out 2 tsp of matcha powder for flour? I try to avoid food coloring.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Yes, that should work just fine. Though I'm not sure if it'll get that noticeably green with a small amount of matcha in that much dough. You might want to increase it to a couple of tablespoons, unless you're wanting just a very slight green colour and not much matcha flavour.

Yum, I think that sounds like a great idea—you might need to use a bit more matcha powder to get the color you want though.
Thanks so much! I appreciate the suggestions for quantities, since I have not baked with matcha before. Do you both think 2-3 Tbs would be more like it?
Yes, I'd start with 2, and then you could also sprinkle them with matcha sugar (get a ratio in the matcha snickerdoodle recipe: https://food52.com/recipes...) for an added punch of green.
LJ, I like your idea. I'll let you know how they turn out!
