Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream

Green Tea ice cream is my ultimate, ULTIMATE favorite flavor. Unfortunately, most ice cream parlors in America don’t carry green tea ice cream so I always end up getting a scoop of coffee. Thankfully someone came up with a homemade matcha ice cream recipe! Now i can have green tea ice cream anytime and all the time!

Homemade Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
INGREDIENTS:
2 tsp Green Tea Powder
2 cups Half and Half (16 oz)
4 Egg Yokes
½ Cup Sugar

DIRECTIONS:
1. Prepare the 4 yolks and combine with 1/2 cup of half and half into a bowl. Add the egg/half and half mixture into a small saucepan and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes (stir occasionally). This will make the egg yolk safe to eat.
2. In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of matcha powder. After cooking the egg mixture for 10 minutes, turn off the stove and add the matcha powder mixture into the saucepan. Stir well.
3. In the container you are freezing the ice cream with, combine the saucepan mixture with the rest of the half and half. Stir well.
4. Freeze the mixture and stir at intervals: Freeze for 3 hours and then mix the ice cream. Then stir again after 1 hour. Stir after 1 hour 2-3 more times.
Yield about 1 quart.

Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies

green tea cookies

My family and I LOVE green tea. I decided to have すべて抹茶 (Subete Matcha – Everything Matcha). So one weekend I made these awesome green tea cookies. You can purchase matcha green tea powder for making tea in higher end grocery stores like Central Market by HEB or order online (Amazon is a good place). Matcha powder can be a bit pricey but it is worth it! There are several types of green tea so make sure you get the powder version (referred to as ‘matcha’).

Quick lesson on green tea:

Sencha (煎茶) is a Japanese green tea, specifically one made without grinding the tea leaves. The word “sencha” means “simmered tea,”referring to the method that the tea beverage is made from the dried tea leaves. This is as opposed, for example, to matcha (抹茶), powdered Japanese green tea, in which case the green tea powder is mixed with hot water and therefore the leaf itself is included in the beverage.

Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon green tea matcha powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and matcha powder.
3. In a large bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy.
4. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1 heaping tablespoon at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 2-3 inches apart.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly browned. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
