Baking with green tea

I recently received a beautiful box of green tea powder from a friend of mine.  I had been wondering how I could use it for baking and saving it for the perfect recipe to try.  Then in this month’s issue of Food and Wine magazine, there was a section on green tea including a recipe for these green tea cookies.  So, for this weeks’ confections, I made F&W’s green tea cookies and almond cupcakes with green tea frosting from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.
