Aside from ice cream making, one of my favorite kitchen past times is baking. You may have guessed that given the number of baked goods inspired ice cream flavors. My favorite types of baked edible treats are cookies, muffins, and quick breads.
Happy New Year! As you can tell from my lack of recent posts, its been a busy few weeks. So as such, I kind of cheated with this week’s recipe. I didn’t really create a new recipe to share with you, just a new version of one my favorites. A few months ago I made Double Oreo Ice Cream as a way to test out how it would taste to steep cookies in an ice cream base. The ice cream was a huge success and I have received several requests to remake the recipe since October.
I grew up in a family deep-seeded in Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. They expressed this heritage primarily through food. At every holiday event there was something on the table that was a reminder of their culture – Funny Cake, Creamed Cabbage, Ring Bologna, Filling (to name a few). Shoofly Pie was a particular favorite of the family, with its gooey molasses bottom, cakey middle, and light layer of crumb on top.
As a follow-up to last week’s ice cream post, I decided to use the delicious Double Oreo Ice Cream in my freezer to make cute Oreo ice cream sandwiches! Actually it was my husband’s idea to make the sandwiches using the oreo cookies. They are cute and simple and would be a great party snack! Good portion control as well (that is if you can eat only one).
