My streak of delicious ice cream continues with this latest combo.
Last night I stopped by Spiro’s and placed a take-out to order for 3 pieces of their baklava. Upon arriving home and opening the takeout container I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the portions and honey pool our baklava was resting in. Sarah and I then got to work.
First we split the batch of vanilla base used on the Fig and Balsamic Vinegar Ice Cream. Once we had a separate container assigned for this batch we dissected the inner nutty portion of 2 pieces of baklava setting the phyllo layers aside.
The both the nutty and phyllo layers were coarsely chopped.
The nutty layer was mixed into the ice cream first followed by a few gentle folds of the phyllo layer to ensure the phyllo wouldn’t separate. Finally we drizzled in the remaining honey and set it in the freezer overnight.
This shit bangs. We thought it needed more cinnamon so we dusted a little on top (next time we’ll be sure to add some to the base). Now I just need to sneak into the refrigerator late tonight and eat the leftover piece of baklava without Sarah noticing.
Next up: Strawberry and Balsamic Vinegar Ice Cream.
