I did A Bad Thing. A Really Really Bad Thing. The kind of bad thing that’s pretty much the best ever, unless you’re trying to avoid sweets.
I did this thing like 3 months ago and am just now getting to blogging about it. It’s not as though I haven’t been doing anything cool since Miss Bean was born, but I haven’t figured out how to fit in blogging about it just yet. I only get little snippets of time to myself throughout the day, so it’s a multi-day process to write a post.
ANYWAY. Back to the ice cream. Remember last year when I made this Samoa-inspired ice cream? It’s pretty much the best ice cream of all time. Well, I made it even better by letting you eat it with your hands. These are mind-numbingly delicious. And not just because of the brain freeze. (more…)
I’m calling this “Samoa inspired ice cream” because I can’t tell you it tastes exactly like biting into a Samoa girl scout cookie. But all the elements are there and it tastes amazing.
I wasn’t necessarily going to do a post about this ice cream right away. I made the first batch about a month ago, and when my mom tasted it, she INSISTED that I blog about it right away because it’s just that good and because the first batch ran out.
I’m not going to lie to you. This recipe is not hard, but there are kind of a lot of steps. But these steps are easily broken up over a couple of days, or do what I did and take a Saturday at home and do a little bit throughout the day. Most of the work isn’t really hands-on, but you need a lot of time to cool the custard and bake some up some shortbread. But it’s so worth the time. This might be my new favorite ice cream of all time.
Well, friends. I have to tell you something.
I’m not perfect.
Phew, glad I got that off my chest.
Sometimes, I make recipes (usually new ones, but sometimes ones I’ve used before) and I just don’t get it right. This is one of those times.
My grandma makes these turtle bars, and they might be my favorite thing she makes. Definitely top 5. So after we got all my grandma’s recipes last year, I couldn’t wait to make them. (more…)
