Sending Dutchy some Bitterkoekjes Ice Cream (save some for me):
Handy how to:
1/3 cup (75 ml) cream
1 tbsp sugar
2½ tbsp (50 g) chopped dark chocolate
1 cup (125 g) bitterkoekjes (or amaretti)
½ cup (125 ml) crème fraîche
1 tbsp almond liqueur
Whip the cream and sugar until it reaches a consistency as thick as yogurt. Chop the chocolate finely. Break the bitterkoekjes into pieces.
Mix the chocolate, cookies, crème fraîche and liqueur with the cream. Spoon the mixture into a pretty, freezer-proof glass bowl or freezer-proof serving glasses and leave to stiffen in the freezer for a few hours.
Take the ice cream out of the freezer a half an hour before serving, so that the ice cream can soften a bit. Garnish with the remaining cookies.
Happy Birthday, Dutchy!
