Serves 8| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup espresso
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum
  • 14 ladyfingers (about 4 ounces)
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. Dissolve the sugar in the espresso, add the rum, and chill. Dip the ladyfingers, one at a time, into the espresso and arrange them snugly in the bottom of an 8-by-8-inch baking pan, trimming if necessary.
  2. Scoop the ice cream into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat with a paddle attachment until it's soft but still holds its shape, about 2 minutes. Spread over the ladyfingers to form a smooth surface. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours or overnight (if overnight, wrap in plastic to prevent freezer burn).
  3. Let soften slightly before scooping into bowls to serve.

Quick Tip

Vanilla and chocolate ice cream in a cone
There are great non-dairy alternatives that can be substituted for ice cream in all these recipes. Try the vanilla from Turtle Mountain Purely Decadent Soy Delicious; it has the richness of ice cream without the dairy.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
