These Ulu Gelato Cookie Sandwiches are a real treat! Our friends at Touch A Heart (see below to learn about the invaluable work they do) has harvested local ulu and baked the cookies for us to use in making these delicious creations.
Cookies: Ulu flour, coconut, oats, quinoa and golden flax seed are mixed in to the batter to create a delicious lace cookie.
Gelato: Cooked ulu is the featured ingredient in two different gelati -- Ulu Macadamia Nut Gelato and Ulu Lilikoi Gelato.
Two different Ulu Gelato Cookie Sandwiches are available; both using the same cookie and one with Ulu Macadamia Nut Gelato and another with Ulu Lilikoi Gelato.
A portion of sales from these treats will go back to Touch A Heart in support of its essential community efforts.
