Vanilla Ice Cream - Food Librarian
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu decided on Vanilla Ice Cream on page 428 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours. Lynne's blog is sooo pretty!

I've never made vanilla ice cream! Thanks Lynne for picking this's perfect for this hot summer!

This vanilla ice cream has heavy cream, whole milk, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla. I used vanilla paste to get those nifty little vanilla bean specks.

I made an ice cream sandwich with two Ginger Spice Cookies. Yum! These remind me of the ice cream sandwiches at Diddy Reese in Westwood. It's a landmark at UCLA. Cookies for $.25 and ice cream sandwiches with Dreyer's ice cream for a buck (prices have gone up, but only a little). It's 100% sweetness.

Gorgeous photos!! I just made ginger cookies today, now I have a new idea to try :)

Oh vanilla ice cream with berries are just YUM! My husband loves ice cream sandwiches so I can't show him this or he'll march right out and get an ice cream machine. And then we'd all be in trouble.

My new place is going to be down the street from Diddy Reese! I have recently come to appreciate the simplicity in vanilla ice cream so I can imagine how great this is.

the ginger spice cookies look wonderful and just perfect with the ice cream.

Diddy Reese is fantastic! I always make an effort to stop by when I'm in Southern California. And that ice cream sandwich you made looks great!

Ooo - perfect with ginger spice cookies! I stuck with adding to the ice cream, but those sandwiches look gorgeous and delicious!

I've been meaning to try that vanilla paste - much easier than beans, and very intriguing! The cookies look wonderful, too.

ps my bananas are over-ripening as we speak! :)

Ooh, yummy! I love ginger cookies. I never think to make ice cream sandwiches; I bet my girls would love them. Might have to bake some cookies...

Your ice cream looks amazing and I love your photos. You always have such great pottery, it keeps me coming back to your blog (that and I am a librarian too!)

You're not a Bruin until you've had a Diddy Reese cookie. Everytime I have an ice cream sandwich, I think of that place.

I love the bowl in your pictures (I like the little feet on them)...was this one of your NorCal finds?

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Yes, Diddy Reese is happiness. The bowl with feet is from Marukai on Artesia in Gardena. It was really cheap too! I'm always looking for pottery. ;)

I made ice cream sandwiches with my vanilla ice cream, too. Yours looks delicious!

It turned out so nice, it looks rich and creamy. This was a great ice cream to use for ice cream sandwiches.

I'm glad that this was your first foray into vanilla ice cream, because it looks like a complete winner! Gorgeous job!

Yum! Looks great. It would be awesome with the ginger cookies! And berries, and well, everything!

Maria said... [Reply to comment]

Cookies and ice cream-my favorite dessert!

Mmm ginger spice cookies are the perfect thing to sandwich that ice cream! I recently made some ginger molasses cookies I found on your blog and they were insanely amazing and perfect!

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]

Yum...what I wouldn't give for one of those little sandwiches right now - and it's only 8:30 am! They look incredible.

Mme said... [Reply to comment]

I am so making those ginger cookie ice cream sandwiches. Genius!

I've been having the best time poking through your recent posts (yep, I've been neglecting my Reader lately). Your ice cream (and ice cream sandwiches) look delectable. Will have to try those cookies.
