I’ve never made ice cream before, so I did you guys a favor and found this recipe elsewhere. This ice cream mixes the salty taste of sea salt with the sweet tastes of cream and sugar. Apparently, Kingdom Hearts II director Tetsuya Nomura had this ice cream on a trip to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and liked it so much he decided to work with Disney to put it in the games. The characters of Kingdom Hearts II can often be seen eating and talking about this delicious salty-sweet dessert. Enjoy it with your best buddy at twilight.
Ingredients:2 eggs2 c. milk1/3 cup sugar1 t. vanilla1 c. heavy whipping creamsea salt to tasteblue food coloring (optional)
ice pop molds (optional)
Separate the eggs into two good sized bowls and beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Slowly bring milk to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Pour hot milk into yolk/sugar mixture and mix well. Pour milk/yolk/sugar mixture back into pot and heat on medium until thicker to make a custard. Do not boil. Pour custard in with beaten egg whites and mix well. Add sea salt (keeping adding salt until it tastes salty sweet). Put mixture in fridge to cool. Once cool, add cream, vanilla and coloring to mixture. Freeze, following your ice cream maker’s instructions. If you wish, get some ice pop molds. Spray the inside of these with very little PAM spray (or something similar). Then pour the ice cream into the molds right after it comes out of the ice cream maker. Pop the lid on and the stick in and freeze for at least two hours.
Secret ingredient: This one is too easy and too simple to have anything secret ;)
Those cookies are super easy and quick to make! It’s my perfect back-up recipe when I have unexpected friends over! They have a soft texture, are not too sweet and taste amazing :) And they are - not - like coconut macaroons at all (I don’t like those too much, too much sugar)
- 250g of all purpose flour
- 7g of baking powder
- 120g of salted butter, softened
- 120g of white sugar
- 120g of coconut flakes
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- Glazing option:1 yolk mixed with 1 tablespoon of milk
1) Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C
2) In a bowl: mix together the flour + baking powder. Add in the butter, cut in small chunks, and knead by hand until a sandy consistency is obtained. Add in the coconut flakes + sugar.
3) In another little bowl, mix together the egg yolks and milk with a fork. Add it to the dough and knead until the dough forms a well blended ball.
4) Roll out the dough to about 1cm thick on a work surface. Cut out squares with a knife. Spread the glaze with a brush on top of the squares, then sprinkle with coconut flakes.
5) Bake until the squares just begin to brown, about 10-12 minutes.
