Step-by-Step Recipe: Matchamisu = Matcha (Green Tea) Tiramisu

 

This month, my baking/cooking guru Queenie worked up a recipe for a mini Matchamisu, or matcha tiramisu. Layer upon layer of matcha. Beware, if you're sensitive to caffeine, you may want to limit yourself to just one of these decadent tiny treats.
