After running a poll on what ice cream flavour to make over on the cozebakes Facebook page, the winner by quite a big margin was Mango Ice Cream.
I make this a little differently than the other ice cream recipes on here as you could chop up fresh mango and mix it in but there’s a chance you would be eating frozen pieces of mango with ice on them after the freezing process and that wouldn’t be very nice! The solution I felt was to pulp the mango in my food processer and mix this in to get the flavour throughout.
Most of my other ice cream recipes use condensed milk and they are all really good. As peaches are in season, I tried a recipe with fresh peaches and using the same method. I had no complaints, everyone loved it but I wasn’t happy. I felt the condensed milk was the primary flavour instead of the peaches so I set about trying to work around this.
I’m happy to report that the second test worked out much closer to what I wanted to achieve 🙂
These Apple Pockets happened by mistake really. I had made Baked Apples and had filling leftover. The filling was so delicious that I wanted to do something with it but didn’t have enough for small pies.
I remembered I had seen a video on using pastry in different ways and that sort of made it happen.
