SEMI FREDDO

Yeild: 3 Quarts Ice Cream or 12 Servings

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

3 Cups Heavy Cream

1 Cup Whole Milk

¾ Cup Sugar

2 ea or 2 Tablespoons Vanilla Beans, Split or Vanilla Extract

4 ea Egg Yolks Whisked

Whipped Cream

6 Cups Heavy Cream

¾ Cup Powdered Sugar

3 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Additional

12 Shots Espresso

4 Tablespoons Chocolate, Shaved

 

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

  1. Heat the cream, milk, and sugar in a heavy-bottomed sauce pot. Stir occasionally to keep the bottom from scalding and to distribute the heat.
  2. Once the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture is hot, temper about one cup of the hot liquid into the egg yolks. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the sauce pot with the rest of the hot mixture, add the vanilla beans or extract, and cook over medium heat until the mixture has thickened—do not allow to boil or the liquid will curdle.
  3. Strain the liquid, now a custard, into a clean bowl. Pull out the vanilla beans, if using, and scrape the seeds into the custard. Discard the beans.
  4. Cool the mixture before churning in an ice cream machine.

 

Whipped Cream

  1. Combine cream, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Using a whisk attachment, whip until fluffy.
  2. Spoon whipped cream into piping bag fitted with a star tip.

  2. Pull one shot of espresso (or our Finale Port tastes great with it, too!) and pour into a cream pitcher.
  3. Serve ice cream with espresso. Pour the espresso and enjoy!
