Matcha Brownies

OK, these were really, Really, REALLY good!  And easy.  And green.  :-)

Take your regular brownie recipe.  Pour the batter into the pan.  Spoon the filling (recipe below) in dollops across the top and blend with a knife for the swirl effect.  Bake as normal - it may need a wee bit longer.  I also keep them refrigerated, due to the cream cheese.

Matcha Filling:
*4 oz cream cheese
*1 egg
*2+ teaspoons of matcha, depending on how green you want it
*2 tsp sugar

Blend in mixer until smooth.

By the way, use food grade matcha for this.  Matcha can be expensive and you want to save the more expensive tea grade for drinking.  The less expensive food grade is perfectly fine for cooking.

I have to love a recipe that begins with, "Take your regular brownie recipe ..."

And these look so pretty too--perfect for teatime!

The photo reminded me of Hurricane Andrew. I sheltered at a home where there was a pan of similar looking brownies. The "hurricane brownies," featured a different type of horticulture. In the early morning the barometric pressure began to rapidly drop. The effect was physical discomfort and agitation. Bill, our host introduced the pan of brownies. Comfort food at that moment was greatly appreciated.
