Preparation

For the matcha tea biscuit:

  • In a bowl, combine the flour with the baking soda, salt and matcha. Mix well and set aside.
  • Put the butter in another bowl and let it soften. Add the sugars and whisk until you get a swollen and foamy mass. Add the egg and mix until well incorporated.
  • Now add the mixture with the flour, a little at a time. When the flour is well blended, add the chocolate chips and knead briefly to incorporate them into the dough.
  • Let the dough rest in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  • Take the dough again, roll it out on a floured work surface to a thickness of ½ mm, then line the tartlet molds of the size you prefer.
  • Bake in a hot oven at 180 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven, let it cool completely and remove from the molds.

 

For the pine nut ice cream:

  • Combine the milk, sugar, agar agar (if you use it) and the Cremadelizia Pinolo Babbi in a saucepan.
  • Put the saucepan on the stove and heat until the sugar melts (if you have a thermometer you will have to reach 70 degrees).
  • Let the mixture cool completely. When it is cold add the cream and mix.
  • Pour the mixture in a ice cream maker. Let the ice cream maker work for 25-30 minutes.
  • When the ice cream is ready, let it harden for half an hour in the freezer.

 

For assembly:

  • Take a cup of biscuit, put a scoop of ice cream in it and complete with a sprinkling of matcha and some pine nuts. Serve immediately.
