I just can't seem to put my ice cream maker up guys! This is cinnamon dolce ice cream. It's inspired by the Starbucks flavor and Biscoff Cookies. Does anyone remember when Delta airlines used to give complimentary Biscoff Cookies on all their flights. Man, those were the days.
If you can't tell, I'm a big cinnamon fan. This ice cream is a little different because it is made from ricotta cheese. This gives it a slightly different texture than custard based ice cream, and it's less sweet. Don't get me wrong. It's still ice cream (there's plenty of cream and sugar involved), but it's just a little more grown up. To me this is the perfect ice cream companion to an evening cup of coffee.
Cinnamon Dolce Ice Cream, makes about 1/2 quart
12 oz. ricotta cheese
1 cup milk (I used 2% but whole is even better)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar (regular/granulated)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Cream together the ricotta cheese and milk until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or overnight). Pour the cold batter in to your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer directions for use.Happy ice cream making! xo. Emma
