I am constantly amazed at the huge variety of cookie recipes. Just when you think you’ve made most of the options out there, you realize there are hundreds more that are unique and so different from the ones you usually make. If you’re anything like me, you find yourself making the same cookies over and over because the recipe is just comfortable. Hopefully the cookie of the month helps you broaden your cookie repertoire. This month’s cookie has a unique combination of ingredients but delivers a satisfying crispy, crunchy cookie with a surprisingly soft center.
I don’t want this week to end! There are just too many great ice creams! Today’s ice cream is an extra special recipe because not only does it encompass the all-American classic flavors of peanut butter and jelly, but you have the chance to receive a KitchenAid mixer with the ice cream freezer attachment! My KitchenAid is a staple in the kitchen and a workhorse that I use almost every day. And the company has been generous enough to partner with The Gray Boxwood and help one of you receive my favorite appliance. All you need to do is leave a comment on the video telling me your favorite ice cream flavor and one of you will receive the mixer! (Make sure to leave your comment on the YouTube video itself and read the official rules before entering.) Soon, you can make this amazing peanut butter ice cream swirled with strawberry jam. I mean, it tastes exactly like the sandwich, but better.
I mean, we all love chocolate ice cream. Young and old alike, chocolate is just classic. There are so many variations for chocolate ice creams and while I won’t say this one is the best one…it comes pretty close. Flavoring it with Nutella chocolate spread not only gives this an amazing flavor, but also lends to a perfectly smooth, creamy and always scoop-able consistency. I tried various chocolates and flavors, but this one wasn’t only simple, I simply couldn’t get it out of my mind!
Honestly, the title says all you need to know. This is raspberry cheesecake ice cream….do you hear the angels singing!? When I had friends and family try this, everyone’s response was “it’s like I’m eating a piece of cheesecake!” I admit, some of these ice creams take a little more time to make. But I’ve found that nothing beats the flavor of homemade ice cream. You know exactly what the ingredients are and you can create your own flavor combinations!
