cooking matcha

SO I found matcha powder in my local Walmart and picked it up since matcha is incredibly rare in my little town.

Decided to make matcha cookies with it for my first foray into cooking with matcha! c:

YOU WILL NEED:

-1 Teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder

-1 Tablespoon Sugar (Plus More If You Like It Sweeter)

-¼ Cup White Grape Juice

-½ Cup Ice Cubes (Plus 3-4 More Ice Cubes In A Separate Bowl)

-¼ Cup Heavy Cream

-½ Cup Frozen Mango Chunks (Partially Thawed)

-½ Cup Dry Bubble Tapioca (Or More If You Like)

-2 Tablespoons Honey

-Can Of Whipped Cream (Optional)

-Bubble Tea Straws (Optional)

-Disposable Smoothie Cups (Optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Bring a pot of water to a full, rolling boil then add in the tapioca pearls. Instructions:

2. Stir the water slightly to make sure that they do not stick together.

3. Let the water boil for about a minute.

4. Put a lid on the pot and reduce the heat to medium.

5. Cook the tapioca pearls for 5-8 minutes, you can take one out with a slotted spoon and run it under cold water for a few seconds then taste it to see if they are done. They should be tender and chewy.

6. Drain the hot water with a strainer and rinse the tapioca pearls in cold water for about 30 seconds.

7. Transfer the pearls to a bowl and mix in 2 tablespoons of honey to make them sweet. Place the extra ice cubes on top and set aside.

8. Pour white grape juice, ice cubes, green tea powder and sugar into a large blender and blend until well incorporated.

9. Add the heavy cream and the mango chunks and blend on high speed for 3-5 minutes or until smooth and frothy, add more sugar if desired.

10. Divide tapioca among 2 or 3 cups, and then pour the smoothie over the tapioca, making sure that all the cups have about the same amount in them. top with whipped cream if desired.

11. Serve immediately with bubble tea straws.

How to cut and bake the Green Tea Biscuits.

One the dough has been refrigerated for an hour, it can be prepared into biscuits. Take the cling film off the dough and roll the entire dough in sugar. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 3mm thickness discs and place on a greaseproof paper. Make sure to place them with some space in between for the biscuits to expand. 

Place in a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees for 18 minutes. Once baked, remove from the tray and place on a cooling rack to retain the crunch.
