Miss Nona's Yoda Cream Cookies!

My Grandmother's Tea Cookies came together with the Galaxy Far, Far Away to create an out-of-this-world Yoda Cream Cookie!

When my Grandmother, Miss Nona, passed away, she left me her magical box of recipes:  inside was full of enchanted, delightful recipes for sweets of all kinds!  And so, this is where I start when looking for a cookie recipe.
My search found her Tea Cookies, and together with Matcha Powder for goodness and greeness, we had the base for Yoda Cookies!
