🍴 RECIPE 🍴
1 3/4 cups of boiling water
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of Zen Tea Leaf® Matcha Green Tea Powder, plus extra for dusting
1 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon of water
4 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups of mascarpone cheese
1 cup of heavy cream, chilled
About 50 crisp of Italian ladyfinger cookies
Whisk together boiling water, sugar & matcha powder in a shallow bowl until well combined. Set aside to cool.
Combine sugar & water in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute.
Place egg yolks in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, & whisk on medium-low.
Then slowly pour in the hot sugar syrup.
Increase the mixer's speed to medium-high and beat it for about 8 minutes.
In a separate bowl, beat cream to stiff peaks.
Add in mascarpone the yolk mixture and gently fold.
Dip both sides of each ladyfinger in the matcha mixture.
Line the bottom of a 13x9x3-inch baking pan with a single layer of cookies, trimming edges of ladyfingers to fit if necessary.
Spread one third of cream mixture on top. Repeat with another layer of ladyfingers and another layer of cream.
Dip final layer of ladyfingers in matcha and arrange over top. Spread remaining cream mixture over top, or place in a piping bag fitted with a 1-inch piping tip and decoratively pipe dollops of cream in rows to cover the top.
Dust with matcha powder.
Chill, covered, at least 4 hours or overnight.
Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
