Tuesdays With Dorie: Unbelievably Good Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream and REWIND December 20, 2011


Tuesdays With Dorie is coming to an end really fast.  I can’t believe how the time flies.  Speaking of time flying, how is my little Emma already 6 months old?  That is just plain nuts 🙂

So, last week I made the ice cream and everything on time and then with realizing Christmas was fast approaching and I had yet to start baking cookies…well needless to say I never posted, opps.  I guess that is the story of my life these days.  Without further ado, last weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by our fearless leader, Laurie of Slush, she picked Dorie’s Unbelievably Good Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream.  This yummy recipe is located on page 433 of Baking: From My Home to Yours.  The other recipe that we could have picked was chosen by Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen, who picked Dorie’s Puffed Double Plum Tart on page 378.  I actually wanted to make the Plum Tart, but Mike wanted ice cream.  So I figured this way I would eat less of the ice cream if I made what he wanted 🙂

The ice cream was very easy to put together and when it cooled it was like chocolate pudding.  I was very impressed at how well the ice cream churned up and then the blueberry preserves added a nice color and fruitiness to the ice cream.  It was a perfect balance and very creamy 🙂

Now we get to this week.  This week was a REWIND so we were allowed to chose  any recipes.  Since I am in the middle of cookie baking, and I usually make a couple of Dorie’s cookies for Christmas.  I actually made the Linzer Sables (pictured) and the Spicy Molasses cookies (not pictured).  This time around I made the Linzer Sables with ground almond instead of ground hazelnuts.  They turned out great.  They always bake up perfectly and are very easy to make, and they were requested from my father which is funny because I ended up choosing the cookies that my father and father-in-law like 🙂

tuesdayswithdorieThis weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Tommi of Brown Interior.   She selected Dorie’s Honey-Peach Ice Cream which is located on page 437 of Baking: From My Home to Yours. I LOVE peach ice cream.  As a kid when my parents or my grandparents would ask me what type of ice cream I wanted, I would always ask for peach.  I also LOVE fresh peaches, but it isn’t currently prime peach season here yet so I had to settle for some not so ripe peaches.

This weeks TWD was chosen by Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity and it is Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream located on page 434 of Baking: From My Home to Yours. If you go to Dolores’s site you can see the full recipe.

At first when I saw that we were making ice cream I thought that I was going to have to pass on this recipe and make one from the archive, but a miracle happened. My parents were actually driving up to visit, so I called my mom and asked her to bring up my ice cream maker. I have probably had this thing for 10 years, and the last time I used it was over 8 years ago. The core has been chilling in the freezer back home probably for 8 years without being touched. This was the perfect time to see if it worked… (more…)
