Green Tea Cookies

What's with all this green tea craze? People seems hysterical about anything with green tea in it. I'm intrigued, and my curiosity is enough to bring me to buy some green tea powder on the baking-supply store. Quite expensive for such minuscule package, I must say. Anyway, let's turn that famous powder into cookies! Of course! 

Pick your favorite cookies recipe. Add generous amount of green tea powder to the flour mix. Substitute brown sugar with white sugar, and chocolate-chips with white chocolate-chips. Because I think green tea would go well with white chocolate. And I'm right. The cookies are sooo good I wanna cry. 

But I think it's because, you know, cookies are like my most favorite snack in the world. Not because the green tea. I still don't get what this green tea madness is all about. 
Anyway, this is how I bring them to the next level:

Let's start chocolate-chip-cookie-ice-cream-sandwiches craze!

#BakingWithKid: Lazy Saturday Afternoon Cake

When the kid insists on baking a cake on a lazy Saturday, let's just do it as simple as possible. Easy chocolate cake, with basic buttercream frosting and ready-to-use blueberry jelly in between. No need to trim the edge. Just top with more buttercream and let the kid sprinkle as much chocolate chips as he wants. Done! Now let me go back to my book, will ya?

Homemade Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Strawberry cheesecake is good enough, how about strawberry cheesecake ICE CREAM? Total NOM! P.s. no machine required.
Start by preparing strawberry pie filling. There's a step-by-step to make it here.
Then make crumbs. I used crushed digestive biscuit + melted butter.
For the ice cream, mix together butter, cream cheese, whipped cream, sweet condensed milk, and lemon juice. 
Throw in the crumbs, stir. 
Then throw in the strawberry filling. Fold gently, do not overmix!
Yum! At this point, sneak a spoonful or two wouldn't kill. Just remember to pour the rest into a container. Cover and freeze overnight.
