      This is an awesome recipe! I gave you credit in a pending matcha cheesecake recipe I just submitted, for the shortbread crust-- thanks so much for posting it! That crust is now a favorite, it smells wonderful when mixing and bakes so fast. As a Japanese confectionary connoisseur, I love how the sweetened matcha blends with the shortbread. My version uses a little chocolate, the three of them together are simply divine!
