Sandwich of the Week: Ice to Sweet ‘cha

It’s summer. It’s hot. The sun beats down on our skin as the mercury pushes up through glass tubing. If only there was a deliciously chilled food that offered the convenience of a sandwich.

Lucky for you, we are introducing the perfect sweet sandwich! I know that we didn’t invent the ice cream sandwich, but we certainly made a tasty one that will cool you down cooler than Han Solo on a skateboard.  This sandwich is none other than our original creation Ice to Sweet ‘cha.

Note: This sandwich was introduced in our most recent episode all about sweet sandwiches. Go ahead and have a listen for some sweet laughs!

Components

  • Chocolatey cakey cookies
  • Matcha flavored ice cream
  • Raspberry preserves

All of our ingredients are homemade.

Don’t be a Cookie Rookie

We adapted this cookie recipe with the following changes:

  1. Instead of 1 1/4 cups of flour, we used 1 cup of flour.
  2. Added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder.
  3. We nixed the honey.
  4. Only baked the cookies for 6 minutes.

Adda Much-a’ Matcha

Mix together 3 egg yolks and 1 cup of sugar. Throw in 2 Tbsps of match green tea powder to the mix. Over low heat, you’re gonna heat up 3/4 cup of milk until it starts to simmer. Whisk nonstop the heated milk into the egg mix. After it is incorporated, pour the mixture back into the pot. Heat (low), stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens. Chill it. Whip 3/4 cup of heavy cream real good. Fold the cream into the chilled matcha mix. Freeze overnight.

Preserve It

Add 6oz of raspberries, 1/4 cup of sugar, and juice from half of a lemon into a pot. Slowly bring to a boil. If your concoction isn’t thickening, don’t be afraid to lay down more sugar.

Stacks on Stacks

Cool all of your ingredients before stacking them. If you’re like our chef, you can carefully carve out ice cream that matches your cookie shape and put your preserves in a pastry bag. Otherwise, slap a scoop of ice cream onto your cookie and dump on some raspberry preserves. Top it off with another cookie and Bob’s your uncle.

This sandwich is to die for! The richness of the cookies pairs perfectly with the earthy tones of the ice cream. The preserves finish this sandwich off with a tangy but sweet taste. I would recommend eating one of these bad boys before summer ends. Or after summer ends. It’s up to you.
