Blackberry Recipe #2 Blackberry Cheesecake Ice cream
This ice cream is seriously sinful, but worth it. Your going to love the sweet taste of the cream paired with the bittersweet blackberries and to add some crunch I added some smashed vanilla sandwich cookies. I’m not going to lie getting the seeds out of the berries is a bit time-consuming but you’ll be done in about hour, start to finish.
Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup half and half or milk
1 cup purred and seeded blackberries (2 cups whole berries)
12 vanilla cream cookies smashed
2 cups whole blackberries
First get your berries ready by taking 2 cups of whole berries and pulsing them in a food processor until they are pureed.
Then strain the seeds out through a mesh sieve or I have my flour sifter that I have used for years, you just have to wash it good by hand then dry it so it doesn’t rust.
Now your ready to start making the ice cream. Beat your eggs and sugar together until lite and creamy. ( I used my food processor)
Now add the cream cheese and blend well.
Last add the purred berry mixture to the cream. Pour all ingredients into a 1 1/2 quart ice-cream maker fit the attachment and turn on.
When done I poured half of the ice cream into a 9 X 13 in. freezer container and put some whole berries on top and some cookie crumbs. I then put the rest of the ice cream on top and put in the freezer for 2 hours or until firm.
Serve and enjoy!
