WHAT ARE GOOD TOPPINGS FOR ICE CREAM?

HOW DO I PREVENT ICE CREAM GETTING TOO SOFT WHEN I’M SERVING IT AT A PARTY?

We’ve all been there. You are hurriedly scooping out ice cream at a party and it’s getting soft and starting to melt.

All you need to do is place wax paper down on a baking sheet and scoop out several scoops of ice cream. Place the sheet back into the freezer and let them freeze until it’s time for the party! Then once it’s time for cake and ice cream, serve up your guests’ favorite flavor, one scoop at a time.

OTHER WAYS TO SERVE UP ICE CREAM?

One of our new favorite ways to enjoy ice cream is with mini Chocolate Chip cookies made in a cast iron skillet! Once you have one of these mini cookie sundaes, you will definitely want another! These little sweet treats are just enough, help control over indulging, and the warm and gooey cookie with the cool ice cream is just amazing! You have to try it!

Have you ever made an Ice Cream Brownie Parfait? If you haven’t, you are in for another treat! This is one of the indulgent recipes that uses brownies, ice cream, and any candy and toppings of your choice!

Red, White and Blueberry Buckle

  • Author: Dana Gerard
  • Prep Time: 25 mins
  • Cook Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 mins
  • Yield: 16 servings 1 x
  • Category: Breakfast or Dessert
  • Cuisine: American

Butter cake and blueberry cobbler fall in love in this romantic recipe. A simple sugar cookie streusel sends it over the top! Bake and serve straight from the pan with extra berries, whipped cream or a big, fat scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • For the sugar cookie topping:
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour ( 90 gm)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar ( 80 gm)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced ( 85 gm)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest (optional) OR 1 tsp cinnamon
  • For the “buckle” cake batter:
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour ( 195 gm)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder ( 7 gm)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp
  • 3/4 cup sugar ( 150 gm)
  • 2 large eggs, room temp
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest ( 2 – 3 large lemons) OR 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries, cherries or strawberries, sliced ( 225 gm)
  • 2 cups blueberries ( 300 gm)
  • cooking spray to grease pie pan
  • coarse sugar (turbinado) to sprinkle on top (Optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and place oven rack in lower third of oven. Butter or spray either a 9 inch glass or metal pie pan or cake pan. ((You can use a springform pan if you want to lift cake out of pan, but it’s not necessary.)
  2. Make sugar cookie topping: In a medium bowl, mix together flour and sugar. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in butter until mixture has crumbles the size of peas. Add in lemon zest or cinnamon, cover with plastic wrap and freeze while you prepare cake batter.
  3. Make the red, white and blueberry batter: Mix dry ingredients: In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Mix wet ingredients: Using an electric or handheld mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and airy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides of the bowl between each egg.
  6. Add in lemon zest and vanilla extract.
  7. Gradually add in flour mixture, one third at a time, until the last flour disappears. Stop mixer.
  8. Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold in MOST of the blueberries and raspberries (reserving 1/2 cup of each kind for the top of the cake) until evenly distributed. Batter will be very thick.
  9. Pour batter into pan and dot with remaining fruit. Gently push fruit down so that it is halfway into the batter.Use spatula to gently spread batter evenly across pan and smooth top.
  10. Add topping: Remove sugar cookie topping from freezer. Use your hands to squeeze together small clumps of dough and distribute crumbles evenly over top and around edges of pan.
  11. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and topping is lightly golden brown, 55 – 60 minutes.
  12. Remove cake from oven and sprinkle 2 teaspoons of raw sugar over the top, if desired. (Raw sugar adds a shiny golden texture to the just baked cake which gives it a nice “finished” look.) Place on a wire cooling rack. Turn a thin metal spatula or knife carefully around the edge of pan to loosen the sides and make cutting easier later. Cool 15 minutes – an hour.
  13. Slice into wedges and serve straight from the pan.
  14. Serve with extra berries, whipped cream or ice cream.
  15. Happy Fourth of July!

Whether you're planning an intimate COVID-friendly gathering, a backyard barbecue for your immediate family, or a socially-distanced neighborhood event, any of these patriotic recipes is sure to delight.

If the pomp of parades and picnics isn't enough, the variety of tarts, cookies, cupcakes, pies, and pops will give you a reason to celebrate Memorial Day or July 4th.


No-Churn Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream + Video


I am bad at holiday-ing, you guys. Bad, bad, super super bad. Holiday-ing and “national day of ______-ing”. I mean, except for the obvious holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I forget about the others. I’m trying, though, because I assume you guys might like some suggestions for some tasty sorts of things you could serve at your Fourth of July cookout.

By the way, let’s do a survey: do you say “cookout” or “barbecue”? And where are you from? I’m thinking all the southerners are going to say “cookout”, which is definitely what I say. Because if you say “barbecue” there darned well better be some smoked meat.

Anyway, sorry, let me get off that rabbit trail. I created a Pinterest board last week for the Fourth of July. As I’ve been pinning, I have noticed that most of the red, white, and blue things are either: things that have fruit arranged to look like the flag, or things that involve colored candy coating, M&Ms, etc. Now, I think both of those things are fun and cute, but they are also out of place here on a blog where I really don’t do “cute”.

Lucky for me, strawberries are red, blueberries are blue, and ice cream is white. And no-churn ice cream is so easy that you really have no excuse not to make this red, white, and blue ice cream. You know I am completely enamored with my ice cream maker, but I have been trying hard to make my recipes accessible to people who don’t have the same appliances I have. That’s pretty easy with an Instant Pot, but not so much with an ice cream maker! Really, though, when no-churn ice cream is this easy, there’s no reason to pull out the stand mixer and the bowl.

This ice cream is made red, white, and blue ice cream by swirling strawberry and blueberry sauce into it. You could definitely buy jars of sauce (I know they make strawberry sauce for ice cream sundaes, but I’m not sure about blueberry – you might have to thin some blueberry jam with a little water), but these sauces have two ingredients. Two. Ingredients. You really have no excuse to not make your own sauces, unless you are just in a rush (they do need several hours to cool off).

No matter how you do it, I hope you’ll make my no-churn red, white, and blue ice cream, and I hope you love it!

The scoop: 18 Ice cream shops in South Jersey to get your favorite treat

CLOSE

Zoagies creator Ezell Barnes will add a new food truck to his Pennsville location in early May to meet the demands for his fried hoagies gone viral. Cherry Hill Courier-Post

Ice cream makes our lives better.

The creamy goodness can be a reward for hard work. It’s a treat at the end of a long week or a cool down on a hot summer day.

There was nothing like that feeling of hearing the ice cream truck coming as a kid.

According to dairyfoods.com, statistics from Chicago-based market research firm IRI state that over a 52-week period ending Sept. 6, 2020, dollar sales in the ice cream subcategory of the larger ice cream/sherbet category were up 13.4% to $6.8 million. Unit sales increased 8.4% to $1.7 million.

Some of that increase may be due to the pandemic. Creamy cones, milkshakes, ice cream sundaes or banana splits are go-to comfort foods, aren’t they?

As the weather warms up and we head out into the world, here are 18 ice cream places in South Jersey to get your dip on:

Alaura Kitchen Homemade Ice Cream, Pitman

You had me at French Toast.

Yes, French Toast ice cream. Or how about Boardwalk Orange, Fruity Pebbles, Pink Cotton Candy, Just Bananas, lemon-basil, honey-lavender and more.

Alaura Candy Co. was created in 2013 as a way to share a family tradition of making the homemade caramel treats that dated back more than 60 years.

In 2015, Alaura Kitchen opened with the goal of creating “a space where we could continue to produce and sell our delicious caramels while expanding into other treats," the website says. In June of that year, Alaura began to make and sell its own ice cream with a goal to create the best flavors “you’ve ever imagined and improve upon the flavors you already love.”

Some of the ice cream flavors offered on a recent day at Alaura Kitchen Homemade Ice Cream in Pitman. (Photo: Photo provided)

The homemade ice cream flavors include dairy-free and vegan options.

Alaura Kitchen, which has milkshakes and sundaes, also sells Belgian frites, hot dogs, grilled cheese, fried pickles and cheese curds.

Go: 36 S. Broadway, 856-589-3845

Cool Scoops Ice Cream Parlor, North Wildwood

This 1950s-themed ice cream parlor offers over 35 flavors of ice cream, including dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb and gluten-free options.

Cool Scoops ice cream shop in North Wildwood has 1950s cars as some of its booth seating. (Photo: Photo provided)

Located on the corner of 12th and New Jersey avenues, one of the coolest things about the shop – other than the ice cream – is the three 1950s cars they turned into booths for customers.

Cool Scoops offers custom ice cream cakes and hosts parties. The setting features hundreds of pieces of 1950s memorabilia displayed in a museum-type atmosphere.

First opened in 2002 by the Russo family, Cool Scoops is open from President’s Day weekend until about Halloween.

Customer favorites include salted caramel pretzel, banana and their dairy-free and vegan assortments.

Small collectible cars are available with any ice cream or sundae.

Cream Valley Custard, Woodstown

Seems like the perfect name: Cream Valley Custard.

Originally a milking parlor in the 1950s, owners created the custard stand in 1973.

Current owners, Nancy and David Wilson and their family, have owned it since 1994. Nancy used to work at Cream Valley when she was in high school.

A Confetti Cookie Sundae at Cream Valley Custard in Woodstown. (Photo: Photo provided)

There are the gelati, flurries, floats, sundaes, shakes, frozen yogurt and banana splits.

Recently, the “Sundae on Monday” was a Confetti Cookie. It was a vanilla custard, topped with hot fudge, cookie dough and rainbow sprinkles (or jimmies as many call them). Another week it was a Banana Peanut Butter Nut, which featured vanilla custard drizzled with peanut butter sauce and topped with peanuts, bananas, whipped cream and a cherry on top.

“Our creamsicle (custard) is definitely a big hit,” said Regan Wilson, Nancy and David’s daughter, who has taken the management helm.

“A lot of other people don’t have them. It’s a custard flavor that people come here for. Sundae on Monday is a new thing we started this year. People are really loving that. We’re featuring a different sundae each Monday. It’s a little bit more creative with a couple of toppings other than the originals we have during the week.”

Cream Valley Custard isn’t just about the cream. It also offers cheesesteaks, mozzarella sticks, French fries, wraps, hotdogs and hamburgers sandwiches and more.

“A big hit also that we have this year is our cranberry-chicken salad sandwich,” Regan added. “The ladies are just loving that.”

Dippy’s Custard & Ice Cream, Mantua Township

Salted caramel pretzel crunch and the Cookie Monster – a vanilla-based ice cream dyed blue, served with Oreos and cookie dough bites – are two of the favorite flavors made by this shop, which has been scooping up the cream for about four decades.

Ice cream cakes, fresh-baked waffle cones, custard, shakes, sundaes all are available.

No wonder it’s open year-round — locals can’t get enough.

Holiday treats are common. When the calendar flips how about an Irish potato ice cream loaf or an ice cream pie?

Seating is available inside the shop.

Duffer’s Restaurant and Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor, Wildwood

It’s not just about ice cream, it’s about fun. There’s a full arcade with games and prizes and there’s also an 18-hole mini golf course.

Now in its 47th season, Duffer’s, which is family-owned, advertises “huge sundaes, banana splits, waffles and ice cream, creamy milkshakes and ice cream sodas.”

Homemade ice cream is made daily on the premises.

Duffer’s is normally open from May through September.

The Hobby Horse Ice Cream Parlor, Ocean City

A fire in May of 2020 couldn’t hold down this family-run ice cream parlor and café, located in the heart of Ocean City.

More than 42 flavors of ice cream are featured in the bright, colorful parlor, which has a carousel horse outside and features carousel decorations throughout.

Michael Dukeman’s mom and dad, Jerri and Edward Dukeman, started Hobby Horse 28 years ago when she saw the building was for sale.

She’d always wanted an ice cream parlor.

“She thought the building was too cute and just made sense,” said Dukeman, who runs the parlor with his wife Ciara and extended family helping. “Unfortunately, she passed away last year in July. Making the people happy was always her main concern.”

“Our most popular flavors … are vanilla, chocolate and mint chip, but we have some exotic flavors such as blueberry, Peanut Butter Pie, Cotton Candy, S'Mores, red raspberry sorbet (vegan),” he said.

Holiday Ice Cream, Edgewater Park

Here’s the best news: Holiday is open year-round.

Once housed in a small red shack just across the road from where it currently sits along Route 130 South, Holiday Ice Cream is one of those places locals flock to.

Located inside a former convenience store built in 1985, the single-story structure stands out on this busy corner of a well-traveled highway.

The soft-serve ice cream with either chocolate or rainbow “jimmies” is a favorite but there are plenty of other ice cream flavors to choose from in the hand-dipped ice cream. Seasonal flavors such as peppermint or pumpkin are a thing. Holiday also does ice cream cakes.

The old Holiday Lake — a lake, with a recreation center, swimming pool, concession stand — was located nearby many years ago. Holiday Ice Cream’s previous location across the roadway was near the former entrance of Holiday Lake.

Maple Shade Custard Stand, Maple Shade

The little building, trimmed in red and white with a bright red roof, certainly sticks out when driving along Main Street.

The first thing that hits you is the huge DRIVE IN sign on the roof. The other thing is the walk-up counter.

During the summer (in non-COVID times), there always were crowds on warm, summer nights.

RED, WHITE, AND BLUE DESSERT RECIPES

Are you still looking for red, white and blue dessert recipes to celebrate 4th of July? Try our favorite red, white, blue dessert recipes by Gesine Bullock-Prado… I love her super easy red, white and blue fruit tart recipe, where you can show off your patriotic side with pride through raspberries and blueberries. If you don’t have raspberries, use strawberries cut into small pieces.

Another favorite of mine is Gesine’s Frozen Yogurt Icebox Cake recipe. She cleverly hides the frozen yogurt stars in the frozen yogurt icebox cake. When you cut into this delicious and simple yogurt cake, your family and friends will wonder how did you put the stars in the cake. It is easier if you have a silicone star-shaped mold. If you don’t, just spread soften frozen yogurt in a small sheet pan lined with parchment paper or food-plastic wrap, freeze it, and use a star cookie cutter to cut it. Fell free to use your favorite store-bought ice cream, gelato, and/or sorbet instead of frozen yogurt.

Now, watch and learn how Gesine makes these delicious red, white and blue desserts!

Berry Flag Tart
Yield: 24 servings
Preparation: 1 hour
Bake: 1 hour 15 minutes @ 350°F
You’ll need: One 15- x 10- x 1-inch baking pan, 1-inch star cutter

Crust:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 cups cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup ice water
1 egg
2 Tablespoons water
1/3 cup Swedish Pearl Sugar

Raspberry Filling:
Five 6 ounce packages fresh raspberries (about 8 cups)
2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup ClearJel or cornstarch
Pinch salt

Blueberry Filling:
Two 6 ounce packages fresh blueberries (about 2 cups)
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons ClearJel or cornstarch
Pinch salt

1. To make the crust, add the flour, granulated sugar and salt in a food processor. Pulse to mix the ingredients. Add butter pulse until only a few large butter chunks are visible. Slowly add the water while pulsing. Continue pulsing until the water is evenly distributed. Transfer dough to a sheet of plastic wrap and gently knead to incorporate any remaining dry bits. Divide dough into 2 uneven balls one ball should contain two thirds of the pastry. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap. Chill dough portions for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

2. Roll the large dough portion into a 17- x 12-inch rectangle. Place in a 15- x 10- x 1-inch baking pan and trim edges even with sides of pan. Prick the bottom of the dough with a fork and chill until ready to assemble tart. Roll remaining dough portion into a 15- x 10-inch rectangle. Cut six 1/2-inch wide strips from the long side of the dough. Next, cut four more 1/2-inch wide strips that are 9 inches long. Cut as many 1-inch stars as you can with remaining dough, re-rolling scraps as necessary. Place strips and stars on a large baking sheet line with parchment paper. Brush with a mixture of egg and water. Generously sprinkle with Swedish sugar and gently press sugar into surface of dough. Chill while preparing fillings.

3. To make the blueberry filling, mix granulated sugar, ClearJel, and salt in a small bowl. In another bowl, put the blueberries and mix with lemon peel and juice. Add the sugar mixture over blueberries and mix until combined. Do the same for the raspberries.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. With the long side of the dough-lined pan facing you, arrange blueberry filling in the upper left corner of the pan, covering about a 6- x 4-inch rectangle. Spoon the raspberry filling around the blueberries to fill the pan. Place the dough strips over the raspberries, trimming as necessary. Arrange the stars over the blueberries. Bake 60 to 75 minutes or until the filling bubbles and the edges of the crust are golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Frozen Yogurt Icebox Cake
Yields: 10 slices
Preparation: 45 minutes
Stand: 10 minutes to 15 minutes
You’ll need: One silicone star-shaped mold, a 9-inch Pullman or a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan

Plain Yogurt:
2 pints low-fat vanilla-flavored Greek frozen yogurt
Nonstick cooking spray

Red Yogurt:
2 pints low-fat strawberry-flavored Greek frozen yogurt
1/4 cup pomegranate or cherry juice
2 teaspoons red gel food coloring or 4-1/2 teaspoons red liquid food coloring (optional)

Blue Yogurt:
2 pints low-fat blueberry-flavored Greek frozen yogurt
1/4 cup blueberry juice
1/2 teaspoon blue gel food coloring or 1-1/2 teaspoons liquid blue food coloring (optional)

Assembly:
Coconut chips

1. Spray the cavities of the silicone with nonstick cooking spray, set aside. Line a 9-inch Pullman or a 9×5-inch loaf pan with 2 sheets of plastic wrap, enough to cover the bottom and sides, allowing plastic wrap to extend over sides of pan, set aside.

2. In a bowl, put one and a half pint of vanilla yogurt and stir until soften. Fill the cavities with softened yogurt.

3. To make the red yogurt, mix the strawberry frozen yogurt and pomegranate juice until soften. If desired, tint with food coloring. Cover and freeze until mixture is spreadable, about one hour.

4. Then, make the blue yogurt, by mixing the blueberry frozen yogurt and blueberry juice until soften. If desired, tint with food coloring. Cover and freeze until mixture is spreadable, for 1 hour.

5. Spread red yogurt evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Remove the stars from the cavities and press down the center of the red yogurt, until the bottom points of the stars are completely submerged in the red yogurt and the tops are just visible, and placing stars so that they are touching. Freeze for 1 hour. Spread blue yogurt in an even layer over the stars to cover. Freeze until very firm, or at least 24 hours. To unmold, lift the plastic wrap from pan. Place on a serving plate and remove the plastic sprinkle with coconut. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting. Slice with a sharp knife.
