TWD #69: Honey, I made Peach Ice Cream!

June 16, 2009 at 1:56 am 28 comments

On Sunday, my little brother came over and watched the Lakers vs Magic’s last game with me and the Hubs. He specifically requested that I cook dinner instead of ordering pizza (I think he’s anticipating eating alot of pizza in his upcoming college dorm days) and I decided that honey-peach ice cream would be a yummy refreshing dessert to make with our meal. There’s nothing like yelling at the TV with ice cream dribbling down your chin. Ah good times. See LA? You don’t have to riot and set cars on fire to celebrate! Come on now. Cuckoo. Cuckoo.

Special thanks to this week’s hostess, Tommi of Brown Interior for choosing this recipe. (You can find the full recipe on her blog.) I can honestly say that it’s in my Top 5 and I am not sure I would have made it without her choosing it for all us, Tuesdays With Dorie bakers. Now I am not one to do things the easy way so I made sugar cookie ice cream sandwiches per Dorie’s playing around suggestions. You can find the sugar cookie recipe here. Can you say sugar cookie ice cream sandwich crack? I promise you’ll get addicted after one bite.

What I learned this week:
I wasn’t sure I’d be a big fan of a fruit based ice cream. I usually go for the vanilla, chocolate, caramel ice cream combos but all I can say is… don’t knock the fruit until you try it!


Honey-Peach Ice Cream [Sandwiches]
Recipe from Baking: From My Home To Yours, Dorie Greenspan


My bandaged finger tips weren’t happy after peeling and pitting peaches. (Say that 10x fast!) Next time I will take the advice of Nancy and do the “blanch in boiling water+shock in ice water” method instead.


I am not a chunky ice cream fan so I pureed all the peaches and honey instead of saving half peaches to add later.


I mixed in my KAM ice cream attachment for about 20 minutes. It’s still soft serve consistency after you take out of KAM but after freezing for 4+ hours, it became firmer.

ENJOY!

Husband rating: A+
He’s a chocolate and peanut butter ice cream eater but he had multiple bowls of this ice cream and mentioned that chocolate-peanut butter has some competition now. Huzzah!

Wifey rating: A+
My husband loves ice cream. Me? I’m a cake girl. I’ll choose Funfetti over Coldstone any day. With one exception. Dorie Greenspan’s Honey Peach Ice Cream. It’s THAT good. I wanted to add some peach schnapps but Hubs vetoed that idea. He’s not a lush like me but next time I’m gonna add 1-2 tsp and not tell him. I know. I’m evil.

Other rating: A+
I think my little brother had reservations about the peach-honey combination but after one bite of the ice cream sandwich, he was smitten and raved. Seconds and thirds immediately followed. *fist pump*

    I’m so jealous that you made the sugar cookies! I really wanted to but ran out of time/motivation :) I skipped peeling the peaches and just strained the puree when I added it to the custard and that worked pretty well!

    Ooooh, I love the ice cream sandwiches!! I was a bit skeptical too with the flavor, and was thinking I would have preferred to make vanilla, or chocolate chip or something more standard…but I loved this ice cream SO much! I think Honey Peach is my new favorite flavor!

    Your husband vetoed peach schnapps? I’m having trouble understanding that! Your sandwiches look awesome!

    This was a surprise hit for me too – I think maybe the fresh fruit puts it over the top.

    Hey, I made cookie ice cream sandwiches too! Glad you and the fam loved it. And I agree–ice cream is a way better way to celebrate than rioting! (Stupid LA-ites.)

    I have only had strawberry fruit iceceam. You make it look sooo good. I don’t know it I’ll have time to try it. But I will keep it in mind for a hot summer day.

    Great job on the ice cream! I really am considering the KA ice cream attachment… however these days for ice cream I use the Cuisinart ICE-20 (which you asked about in my blog) :)

    My, my, how you’ve come so far from the days when we were scared for you to even cook something in the microwave! HA HA :) This looks awesome and SO pretty!! I need to invest in this KA ice cream attatchment. Seems a lot easier than busting out my ice cream making every time…

    Great job–I love the sandwich idea. I think you should definitely add the schnapps next time. =) I added a bit of rum to mine, which was also good.
