So for the first Mochi Monday, I made vanilla ice cream cookie mochi! I used a different recipe from chapssaldeok I made last week – this recipe is specially for mochi ice cream 🙂

¼ cup + 2 tbsp + 1 pinch (50 g) mochiko (glutinous rice flour) Potato starch for dusting
1/3 cup + 4 tsp (100 mL) water Vanilla ice cream
¼ cup + 2 tbsp (75 g) sugar Chocolate cookie

*The measurements in parentheses are based from the original recipe. I don’t have a weighing scale, so I based my weight on cup conversions for basic baking ingredients 🙂


  1. In a bowl, gradually add water to flour. Mix well until lumps are dissolved.                                        mochiko + water
  2. Add sugar and mix well.
  3. Using a double boiler, steam the mixture for 10 minutes. uncooked mochi

  5. Coat a wax paper or any flat surface with potato starch. potato starch surface

  7. Flatten the mochi using a rolling pin. Divide into 8 pieces.
  8. Place your shaped mochi on the top of a glass to form a cavity.mochi cup
  9. Place one cookie and a tablespoon of ice cream.

  10. Fold the sides to form a ball. Then put in the freeezer to harden the ice cream.


I had a hard time folding the mochi because my ice cream was melting. Make sure to freeze your ice cream really hard, or work fast so you can form it into a ball. I have to practice more on the folding, so I better make them again soon! ^___^
