Ok......so this just happened.
This ice cream is so darn good.
It's so fresh and tangy and sweet and creamy. I mean, it has it all.
I really enjoy it with chopped dark chocolate but it's just as good without.
Whatever you're in the mood for, and I've found the perfect thing to go with it.
These Pina Colada Cookies.
If you follow my blog I'm sure you've heard.....they are my favorite cookie of all time.
Anytime of year, breakfast, lunch or dinner. (Pretty much.)
The perfect pairing!
KEY LIME PIE ICE CREAM with CHOCOLATE
2 cups half and half
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup of key lime juice
Zest of 2 limes
4 sheets of honey graham crackers, broken up
3 oz. of dark or semi-sweet chocolate, optional
Mix together half and half, sugar, salt and vanilla. Let sit 10 minutes, whisking occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Stir in heavy cream. Stir in lime juice right before you add the mixture to your ice cream machine. Freeze according to manufacture's directions.
A couple of minutes before ice cream is done, add lime zest, graham crackers and chocolate (if using) and continue with machine on until mixed through. Transfer ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer to harden further....or not.
