Tropical Tea Ice Cream Sandwiches with Pineapple and Macadamina Nut Cookies

Makes 1 dozen servings

For the Tropical Tea Ice Cream:
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup sugar, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons Tropical Tea powder
5 large egg yolks

1. In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks and ¼ cup of the sugar together until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, bring the milk, cream, ¼ cup of the sugar, salt, and tropical tea powder to a full, rolling boil. Slowly pour the hot liquid over the egg yolks, while whisking constantly. Set the bowl over ice water and stir until cooled to room temperature. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve and freeze in ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and let freeze for at least 4 hours to set.

3. To assemble the ice cream sandwiches, place one scoop of ice cream between two cookies. Serve immediately or store in the freezer for up to 4 hours before eating.

For the Pineapple-Macadamia Cookies:
1 stick unsalted butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups rolled oats
1 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
½ cup dried pineapple, roughly chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and dark brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Slowly add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix until well combined. Add the oats, nuts, and pineapple and mix until just combined. 

3. Evenly drop heaping tablespoons of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, and gently flatten the cookie dough. Bake until light golden brown, about 12 minutes. Let cook on the pans until room temperature before filling with ice cream.

White Chai Hot Chocolate with Chai Marshmallows

Makes 4 servings

For the White Chai Hot Chocolate:
4 cups milk
2 teaspoons Chai Tea powder, or to taste
2 pinches salt
1 cup white chocolate chips

1. In a medium pot, bring the milk, chai tea powder and salt, to a simmer. Remove from the stovetop, add the chocolate chips, and whisk until smooth. Pour into cups and garnish with Chai Marshmallows.

For the Chai Marshmallows:
½ cup cold water, divided
4 ½ teaspoons powdered gelatin
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup dark corn syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Chai Tea powder
½ cup powdered sugar, to coat
½ cup cornstarch, to coat

1. Lightly coat an 8x8-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine ¼ cup of the water and vanilla extract. Sprinkle the powdered gelatin over the surface of the water and vanilla and stir to combine. Attach the bowl to the stand mixer and fit with the whip attachment, and mix on low speed.

3. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ¼ cup of the water, sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a small saucepan. Over medium-high heat, cook the mixture until it reaches 245F. Immediately remove the cooked sugar mixture from the stovetop, and slowly pour into the stand mixer while running. Increase the speed of the mixer to high speed, add the chai tea powder, and whip until light, fluffy and just slightly warm. Immediately transfer the marshmallows to the prepared pan and let stand overnight to set.

4. Combine the powdered sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl. Cut marshmallows with a knife lightly coated in non-stick cooking spray. Toss the cut marshmallows in the sugar and cornstarch mixture. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
