TWD: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream + Rewind


Photobucket

Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity chose the Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream on page 434. I'm not going to lie. I was looking forward to making ice cream, but I wasn't really excited about the flavor. I knew it would just be way too much berry-flavor for me - which it was.

It was still a fun recipe to make even though I didn't like the flavor. I also decided to go back to the TWD roots and do a rewind of the Brown Sugar Pecan Shortbread Cookies. They were absolutely wonderful (even though I over-baked them).

As always, don't miss all the fun - go check out the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie crew's fantastic efforts!

Yum City. That's what your pictures say to me. Yum. Oh, I dig on the berry-ness, yeah...

I love the idea of making the shortbread with it!

a twofer this week--nice! your ice cream is a gorgeous shade of purple!!

Manggy said...

Hah! I think your aversion to fruit is definitely a factor. It looks perfect from where I'm sitting-- can rival the deepest, densest Haagen-Dazs flavor I can think of :)

Natashya said...

I am commenting. Can I have a cookie now?
Ok, I love the perfect little round scoops of ice cream. The shortbread is a great go-with. As a berry lover and a sour cream lover - I will gladly finish your ice cream for you. Yum.

Your ice cream is such a rich, beautiful color and those cookies look great. I agree about the flavor of the ice cream, but it's sure pretty! :)

Gorgeous ice cream. Mine actually didn't have enough berry flavor. I have to try that shortbread again. I couldn't get mine to stay in nice little squares.

It looks beautiful! Sorry you didn't love it. I really enjoyed it, but I love sour cream-y things. The shortbread was a great addition.

Erin said...

Your ice cream looks great- sorry you didn't love it. Great idea to pair it with the shortbread cookies.

CB said...

Wow. Get a load of that bright blueberry color! Brilliant. Bummer you weren't a fan. I wasn't a member when TWD did the shorbread cookies but they are definitely on my rewind must bake list!

Beautiful color! I'm sorry that you didn't like it so much. I'm sure it paired perfectly (if you liked it of course) with the shortbreads.

Sorry you weren't a fan, but dear sweet lord - the color in your ice cream! Too pretty for words.

Those cookies look so good, even more so next to that gorgeous ice cream! I wish I'd thought of that. :)

Oh wow, the color of yours is amazing! Such a deep purple!

I'm sorry to hear you weren't a fan. Neither was I. :( Hopefully we'll get to make some more ice cream before the summer is over.
