There’s not much to say about this ice cream, except that it’s a winner! Made using the base recipe from Jeni’s Ice Cream book, it has that tongue smackin’ cream cheese tang which makes it hard not to steal spoonfuls of it, no matter what time of day, yup even breakfast…seriously.
The recipe is so easy to manipulate and add your own ideas to. Are you like me and think about recipes in random places, like the freeway or hanging out at the Doctors office? I think about food a lot! There’s so many flavors of ice cream available that I don’t think I’ll ever truly invent one but I’ll keep racking my brain hoping one day I’ll find one. My last ice cream adventure was a blue cheese with caramel and candied pecans, which I loved…sadly I was the only one. Except for my boy, but then again he’d eat worms so true taste verification is a little sketchy from him.
Well, after many hours of brain racking and freeway think sessions I came up with…cherry. I know, you’re thinking Is that it? But sometimes you have to leave fancy at home and stick to tried and tested. I was thinking of a cherry pie ice cream but prepping that could get lengthy. The crumble mixture is simple and adds a nice crunchy cookie flavor. Unbelievably as I was making my ultra- delicious cherry crumble ice cream, I noticed a post for Peach crumble ice cream entering the blog world from The Baker Chick. I hope she believes me that I didn’t set out to counterfeit her recipe (which is different) All I can say is…great minds and I’m sure there’s room in the world for two awesome ice cream crumbles.
