Sprinkles with mixed one teaspoon powder sugar and one teaspoon green tea powder /half and half as optional

In food processor mix crust ingredients and process until crumble
make five mini cheese cake, press crumbs mixture into bottom of mini pan

Beautiful and stunning. I shall let you continue with baking more of delicious cakes while I enjoy looking at them.

To look for the specific ingredients is like a big roller coaster for me, so I bake, very simple ones with ingredients I can find at the nearest supermarket.
