Matcha Ice Cream and Cookies
Good matcha ice cream is hard to find. It's often too sweet and lacking in depth, which is why I consider it the perfect candidate to try at home. And with summer approaching, and the idea of turning on an oven not sounding so good, there's been a lot of ice cream-making in my kitchen. If you don't have an ice cream maker don't let that stop you. It's fine without one and just winds up more dense and creamy. Just tell your guests it's like gelato.
I'm a firm believer in having emergency cookie dough in the freezer (just in case you have one of those days), and a log of matcha cookie dough is pretty common in mine. These cookies are lightly sweet and taste refreshingly sophisticated—perfect everyday cookies.
