Have you ever used vanilla bean paste scraped from the pods in your recipes? If you have, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say it makes all the difference in the world. I used it for this olive oil and vanilla bean ice cream, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love seeing the little flecks of it mixed in against the white background of the ice cream.
This ice cream is rich and quite a treat. Paired with cookies more to the liking of grown-ups, this dessert quickly becomes an ice cream sandwich your guests will swoon over. The olive oil adds to the richness in a special way. It’s not overwhelming, but really a delight!
You can save these ice cream sandwiches to serve for a special occasion when it’s just the adults around. They’re sophisticated yet fun and completely delicious.
