The S'mores Ice Cream Sandwich
It doesn't take much to make me happy. While grinding away on a project that has dragged on for the better part of three months, my wife surprised me with this little beauty - a S'mores Ice Cream Sandwich (homemade graham cracker ice cream sandwich with Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams' Askinosie dark milk chocolate ice cream, topped with burnt Plush Puffs marshmallows).
We are both self professed S'mores whores. (Sounds dirty, I know, but to invoke an extremely overused phrase 'it is what it is').
Looking at the picture some might think that she burnt the hell out of the marshmallows, but in this house that's the way we like it. What can I say? That's the way we do. The more burnt, the better...i.e. let's set this sucker on fire and see what it can do. Who doesn't like a little campfire action on a Sunday night?
Regina's tried other graham cracker recipes...this one from Nancy Silverton was acceptable, but in the end she declared that Karen DeMasco's crisp honey graham crackers from "The Craft of Baking" as the ultimate. Interesting story about how Graham flour came to be.
