TWD ~ Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

This post is going to be a little on the quick side. A lot to do today with my daughter =0).

The Tuesday with Dorie burnt sugar ice cream recipe was chosen by Becky of Project Domestication and is delicious! I baked up a batch of Dorie's Grandma's All-Occasion Sugar Cookies, added lemon zest to the dough and did the slice and bake version.The sugar cookies were packed full of flavor, the lemon is definitely pronounced and I had trouble keeping hubby out of them so I had enough for the ice cream sandwiches.The burnt sugar ice cream was not hard to make either. We cooked the water and sugar mixture to an amber color, added our milk and cream and thickened to 175 degrees, poured the mixture into a heat-proof dish, added vanilla extract then chilled.I was taste-testing along the way only because I could not keep out of the ice cream. The flavor has a carmelie (do not think this is a word), sweet, creamy taste to it and the texture is perfectly smooth and creamy too.The ice cream sandwiches look simple but once you sink your teeth into the cookie sandwich, the flavors are anything but simple. I really loved these two recipes! Thank you Becky for such a delicious choice this week! Go to her blog and see the recipe along with how Becky put together her own version. Also, check out all our other TWD bakers for their wonderful versions!
