I guess it’s been almost a week since I posted anything! Oops!
I’ve been having somewhat tea-themed adventures, and while the cookies I made weren’t exactly what I was looking for, I did make some lovely matcha marshmallows.
I’d been looking around for a good marshmallow recipe to start with that didn’t use three packets of gelatin. If four packets come in a box and your recipe uses three, that’s just stupid math. Luckily, there was a recipe on Coconut & Lime that I was able to use. It was so easy and super food-magical (you know, food magic…like meringue and bread and stuff).
With two packets of gelatin, I got a ton of marshmallows and ended up mailing some to a cousin. I might even halve the recipe and try other flavors, to get thinner marshmallows. Then I can use cookie cutters on them.
These have a very strong matcha flavor, and are crazy fluffy and delicious. They are really good with dark chocolate, and if anyone’s got any good recipes for like a sweetened rice and/or sesame cracker, let me know – I want to make bastardized s’mores out of them. They’d be wonderful just covered with the chocolate, too.
I’ll be back with more food in a few days…I’ve got a ton of things I need to make this month but want to take some time to focus on art projects. I’ll post about the successful ones!
