Goat cheese & honey blended into ice cream and sandwiched between two shortbread cookies.
Today I have the perfect summer recipe for you. Kids love it, adults love it.
Easy to make, looks gourmet.
Can’t go wrong.
It starts with a simple shortbread recipe. I love shortbread! Only 4 ingredients gets you to wholesome goodness. Sounds just right for summer.
For this dessert, I chose to use Blue Bunny Ice Cream, specifically the “Flan” variety. Whoever thought to make that classic Mexican dessert into an ice cream was a genius. I snatched it up as soon as I saw it.
Plus I knew it would get along famously with other flavors I added in… honey and goat’s milk cheese.
The goat’s milk cheese adds a creaminess and a tart flavor to the ice cream. It tastes like heaven.
The shortbread is nice and light, mellow enough to not overpower the ice cream. Crunchy on the edges… buttery & flaky on the inside.
It all just kind of crumbles in your mouth. I highly recommend eating them outside, on a hot day. That’s actually part of the instructions.
Mix up some ice cream this summer and pop it on shortbread cookies. You could even make the cookies ahead of time. Impress your friends, be that mom on the block; the one with the homemade ice cream treats.
These sammies will earn you a reputation.
