TWD - Chocolate Ice Cream

So this week's Tuesdays with Dorie was supposed to be a Chocolate Cream Tart as chosen by Kim of Scrumptious Photography. But, as I read the P&Q section, Katya of Second Dinner suggested that the pastry cream used in the pie made excellent ice cream. And, as my ice cream maker was feeling a bit left out lately, I decided it was time to let it shine! It didn't hurt that I was saving myself the calories from the pie crust and whipped cream topping either...

Well, in any case, Katya was right! This makes the most fantastic chocolate ice cream I've ever tasted. A little caramel drizzled in at the last minutes of churning also adds a little "je ne sais quoi"... Really makes this a special treat! So if you're in the mood for something easy, chocolaty, creamy and cold, go for the ice cream. If you're looking for something a little more dressed up and classy, check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers for Chocolate Cream Tarts galore. Have fun today!

I love your interpretation. Looks luscious.

Di said...

Mmm, wonderful idea. I like the idea of adding caramel. I started to make four mini tarts with this recipe. I made one small tart, but then my girls preferred to eat the rest of the pastry cream straight out of bowls. So I made a second batch of the pastry cream, churned it into ice cream, and crumbled my other three tart shells in at the end. It was fantastic!
