I don't know if I have mentioned "Tuesdays with Dorie" yet, so I will explain a little first. "Tuesdays with Dorie" is another online cooking group. Once a week a member chooses a recipe from Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking: From My Home To Yours" and everyone in the group makes that recipe and posts about it on Tuesday. I just received my book in the mail and I spent a good 30 minutes flipping through it last night. I am so excited to make many of the recipes! TWD gives me the push to actually use this book. Honestly, how often do we actually cook/bake more than a few recipes out of a cookbook? This cookbook will definately get used!
This weeks TWD recipe was chosen by Dolores of "Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity". The recipe is Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream. I was so excited that it was an ice cream recipe! It has been warm here for the last couple days (seriously, we aren't having much of a summer!) so I welcomed a cold treat!
I have had my Kitchenaid ice cream attachment for about a year now and have used it more than I thought I would. But, I have always made the traditional ice creams... chocolate chip cookie dough, butter pecan, cake batter, vanilla, etc. I was looking forward to this recipe because it not only used fresh blueberries, but it called for sour cream, an ingredient I hadn't used in ice cream.
The result was tangy and sweet all at the same time. I really enjoyed this ice cream! I was also glad that it didn't make as much as other ice cream recipes because I don't need sweets hanging around! I took the advice of another food blogger and drizzled it with hot fudge. SO GOOD!
My first venture into TWD territory turned out great and I am looking forward to making more recipes with this wonderful group!
