Our 2012 GAICC "Most Unique Yet Suprisingly Good Award Winner!" by Jeremy Flores with a Blackberry Blue Cheese Ice Cream recipe!



"I had blue cheese and honey for the first time at a wine & cheese tasting event and was amazed by the flavor combination of the two. I had some huckleberry honey in my kitchen which I've paired with blue cheese on occasion since then with great results. I decided to try making an ice cream with blue cheese, honey, and the more common blackberry, and could not have been more satisfied with the results. Creamy, sweet, tangy, and fruity, this is a one of a kind flavor combination."

Strawberry Almond Shortcakes with Vanilla Yogurt Whipped Cream



"Strawberry shortcakes are a classic summertime dessert. While it is easy to enjoy fresh, ripe strawberries no matter how they are presented, the cake portion of strawberry shortcake desserts often leaves a lot to be desired. These Strawberry Almond Shortcakes showcase strawberries with a tender almond cake that really compliments them and turns an everyday dessert into something to get excited about.



The almond cakes are made with almond meal, also known as ground almonds or almond flour. The almond meal gives the cake a dense and moist crumb, without making the cakes too heavy. A bit of almond extract highlights the almond meal even more, and each of the cakes is topped with a sprinkle of sliced almonds to add a little texture. The cakes are baked in muffin cups and are just the right size for a single-serving dessert when they are sliced and filled with fresh berries!



To take this dessert over-the-top, I filled the shortcakes with Vanilla Bean Yogurt Whipped Cream and macerated the berries in Rodelle Vanilla Sugar before using them. Macerating the berries in a little bit of sugar helps them start to release their natural juices and gives every berry a little extra sweetness. The juices from the berries will start to be absorbed into the cake as you plate each portion, which helps to tie everything together. The flavors of almond, vanilla and strawberry work perfectly here and put a beautiful twist on a summertime favorite."

Third place was a tie between Kristin Hoffman with a Drunken Cherry Coconut Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate and Toasted Pecans AND Lyndsy Hassett who created a Sweet Olive Oil Ice Cream with Honey-Vanilla Roasted Apricots & Pistachios. Both recipes are absolutely delicious!!



First we would like to introduce Kristin's mouthwatering recipe: "I am the writer of the blog, BakerBettie.com. I like to focus on food that is amazingly delicious yet can still be enjoyed by those who have special dietary needs. This ice cream is vegan and refined sugar free, but you would know that unless you were told. The healthy fat of the coconut milk gives this dairy free ice cream an amazingly creamy, and rich texture."
