This guest poster (that sounds so awkward) is one of my favorite food bloggers. She’s actually one of the very first people I “met” when I first started Steph’s Bite by Bite.
Her recipes make me crazy hungry. I sometimes think the embarrassment of being caught licking my computer screen might be worth it, if it meant that I could actually taste her mouthwatering goodies.
I am so excited to feature Lindsey from Gingerbread Bagels!! I consider Lindsey one of my Food Blogger Besties 🙂 There have been moments when I’m at the store and forgot to look up my FFwD ingredients and I’ll tweet Lindsey and she’ll send me the full ingredient list. When I’m having a bad day she’s sends me a sweet message that makes me smile. She inspires me to be a better baker, and a better blogger. I hope you all enjoy this AMAZING guest poster as much as I do!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream
I’m so happy and honored to be doing a guest post for Steph. She is honestly one of the sweetest bloggers out there and her blog is one of my favorites.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Lindsey and my blog is Gingerbread Bagels. I chronicle my baking adventures in all things sweet, buttery and crazy.
When it comes to ice cream, I’m a die hard Ben and Jerry’s fan. Other ice creams out there are quite scrumptious but no one brings insanity to the ice cream world like Ben and Jerry’s. If you read my blog, you know that I’m known for my own dessert insanity so I’m definitely a lover of creators who like to walk on the wild side. I feel like it’s my mission in life to eat every Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor but there are some that are sadly no longer with us. They’re in the graveyard, seriously. I weep just thinking about it especially since I was never able to taste the pure delicious love of their Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream. While I’ll never be able to create the exact replica, I can have my own little taste of this childhood favorite in ice cream form.
In a large mixing bowl with the paddle attachment (a handheld mixer works fine) mix together 2/3 cup sugar and 1 cup creamy peanut butter. (not the natural kind)
Pour in 1 cup of whole milk and combine on low speed.
Put the mixture into a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours but it’s best to let it chill overnight.
Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instruction.
Once the ice cream is ready, spread a layer of the peanut butter ice cream in the bottom of a container.
Then put drops of strawberry jam on top. You can use however much jam you like and whatever kind of jam is your absolute favorite or whatever kind you have on hand.
Using a knife, swirl the jam around. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Then add another layer of peanut butter ice cream.
Swirl swirl swirl. It’s the little things in life that I love. 😉
More ice cream.
Cover the ice cream and place in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours. Enjoy!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream
(adapted from Cuisinart recipe book)
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter (not the natural kind)
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Strawberry Jam – however much you like or whatever flavor of jam you want
In a large mixing bowl with the paddle attachment (a handheld mixer works fine), mix together the sugar and creamy peanut butter on medium low speed until combined. On low speed, add in the milk. Then add in the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract and mix to completely combine.
At this point I like to take a whisk to mix the ingredients together.
Pour the mixture in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours. But I prefer to chill the mixture overnight (which I recommend).
Turn your ice cream maker on and pour the mixture into the ice cream maker. Freeze according to your manufacturer’s instructions.
Once the ice cream is done churning, spread a layer of the ice cream in the bottom of a container.
Add some jam on top and swirl it.
Spread some more ice cream on top. Add more jam and swirl again.
Finally spread on the last layer of ice cream.
Cover the ice cream and freeze for a couple of hours or more. Then enjoy!
