Matcha Pie Filling
To make the Matcha Pie filling, start by melting the white chocolate in a small bowl, by microwaving for 15 second intervals, and stirring in between till melted and clean. Set the white chocolate apart to chill.
Subsequent, combine 2 tbsp of matcha powder with 4 tbsp of scorching water. Whisk till the matcha has dissolved. Set it apart to chill. Sprinkle 7 grams of gelatin powder over 2 tbsp of chilly water. Then let the gelatin sit with the water for five minutes, till hydrated. As soon as the gelatin is hydrated, add 2 tbsp of scorching water and blend till the gelatin has dissolved fully.
If the gelatin isn’t dissolving, microwave it for a couple of seconds, and stir till dissolved. Beat the cream cheese in a big bowl, with an electrical mixer, for 4 minutes, till creamy and fluffy.
Add the condensed milk, the melted white chocolate, and the gelatin combination to the bowl. Go the matcha/water combination by way of a strainer and add it to the bowl additionally. It’s good to pressure this combination for the reason that matcha tends to clump up and never dissolve fully, so melting it in water and passing by way of a sieve ought to assist.
Cream every part collectively for two minutes, scraping the bowl in between, till it’s all mixed, and the combination is clean. Pour the filling over the cooled down crust. Place it within the fridge for six hours or ideally in a single day.
