The taste is pretty good but I had trouble with the dough. Used the whole meal option and followed the recipe but the result was an exceedingly dry and crumbly dough that might have made a nice apple crisp topping bit it would never made a cookie. I had to mix up and add 1/4 cup (I made a 1/2 recipe) of butter, oil and egg white and extract. That made them a good bit more oily and I could incorporate all of the ingredients into one ball. The dough had to be tightly squeezed into balls and hand flattened on the sheet where they didn't spread at all. I have a lot of good green tea sent to me straight from a friend in China who gets it right from the tea grower and I was truly looking forward to having a terrific way to use it. I'm sorry that this recipe just didn't work well for me. Perhaps someone else will have better luck. Made for PAC Mar/11.
