Think of the best ice cream sandwich you have ever eaten...Now, think of eating it 'open-faced'...
That would best describe Dorie Greenspan's Vanilla Ice Cream Tart.
The tart crust reminded me of an almond sugar cookie. Toasted almonds, brown sugar, flour, butter and an egg came together quickly in my trusty food processor. The dough was easily patted in a buttered tart pan. The crust baked 28 minutes, which was a little too long in my oven. Once out of the oven I sprinkled the hot crust with very mini chocolate chips from KAF. The chocolate melted quickly.
Back to the food processor, toasted almonds were processed till 'almond butter' appeared. Have I mentioned that I love my food processor?? Softened ice cream was added which resulted in a delicious almond vanilla ice cream. And the rest would just be dessert history.
