Midori Cookies

The first thing I wanted to bake was cookies when I returned from Japan... I bought some special ingredients from Japan and I was dying to use them... Like their extra fragrant vanilla beans essence, green tea liqour, red tea liqour...
Dave got me this interesting book when he was in China and I thought it was really pretty and cute... 1 dough, 100 cookies?

The amazing thing is they could produce gooey, crunchy, party, fruity and sandwich cookies with the same basic cookie dough.. I thought that the variation of certain ingredients of cookies would affect the texture of cookie, but it didn't...

However, this recipe has been modified and recreated to suit my preference.. Especially the amount of sugar used...
