Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches
When I offered to make dinner for my parents for their 47th anniversary this week, my mom requested fish, cookies, and ice cream. And since I was asking D to make the cookies, he suggested putting together the last two requests. D cautiously asked, "Would you be okay if I made ice cream sandwiches for Nonno and Nonna? It won't be fancy, but it will be delicious." I'm all for delicious...no need for fancy. 

Ingredients 
makes approximately 3 dozen cookies or 18 ice cream sandwiches

Snickerdoodles
  • 1 C softened butter
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar + 4 T for rolling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 

Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • ice cream (D used vanilla and espresso chocolate cookies crumble)
  • Also needed: scoop
Procedure

Snickerdoodles
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.

In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg and pure vanilla.


Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands.


Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.


Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. But the softer cookies were easier to assemble into ice cream sandwiches.


Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 to 3 minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Once you're ready to assemble...


Ice Cream Sandwiches
Use a scoop to place a small bit of ice cream (he used about 1 T for a 1-1/2" cookie) on the flat side of one cookie. Place the flat side of another cookie on top of the ice cream and gently press them together until the ice cream comes to the edge of the two cookies.


Work quickly and serve immediately!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
