coffee ice cream tart

It’s been awhile since we’ve made a Dorie ice cream concoction.  Well, allow me to make up for lost time by presenting you with a slice of Coffee Ice Cream Tart.  While you could very successfully use softened store-bought coffee (or any flavor, for that matter) ice cream in this tart, I went ahead and made my own.  I have lots of yolks in the freezer, and anyway, ice cream is one of my favorite things to make.  The ice cream is jazzed up with almond slices and extract, and the coffee-almond combo is a good one.  Add a little chocolate and it’s even better.  The crust was a little iffy, though, and it looks like several of us felt this way.  Mine sliced fine, but it was awfully hard to get through the frozen crust with a fork.  I had to resort to picking it up and eating it.  Not terrible, but maybe I just prefer ice cream cakes to tarts?

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read Domestic Deep Thought, as it was Jessica’s pick this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
