If you follow me on Twitter you know my lovely boyfriend bought me a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment for my birthday back in August. He was also sweet enough to buy me David Lebovitz’s book The Perfect Scoop.
After flipping through the pages I saw so many different recipes I wanted to try. Roasted banana, Goat cheese, Matcha, and Mango sorbet were the first to catch my eye. After looking through the book a few more times, I was interested in the Pear-Caramel Ice Cream.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from pear ice cream but it sounded good enough. And it seemed fitting for the first fall inspired ice cream.
In the book David recommends pairing the ice cream with dulce de leche. That got me thinking…maybe I should make some sort of sauce. I flipped through the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream book to the homemade butterscotch recipe. Easy enough, and the type of recipe where you already have the ingredients!
I chose butterscotch because it is my boyfriend’s favorite. You could use any caramel sauce recipe you like, it would be equally as delicious.
It was a delectable addition to the ice cream. Next time I want to add a little whipped cream and chopped walnuts to make the perfect date night dessert.
