  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and you’re done!

Matcha Cheesecake Brownies are the perfect alternative to making holiday sugar cookies! Matcha and chocolate are two flavors that go super well together because both are super rich, but not heavy and helps offset the sweetness of the dessert. I made these super thin, so you can use cookie cutters to cut into your favorite holiday shapes. Let me know in the comments below if you made these Matcha Cheesecake Brownies and how it went!
