Delicious Desserts: Speculaas Ice Cream

It has been a while since I made ice cream, so for the last recipe of the year, I thought I would share the ice cream that we made as a Christmas dessert. But this is also very suitable for New years eve or just throughout the winter. The recipe is very easy to make and becomes a very creamy substance. Even though we do own an ice cream maker, you don't need it for this recipe. The recipe is made with a Dutch biscuit called speculaas but it can be replaced with gingerbread cookies. The original recipe comes from Oh My Foodness.

Speculaas Ice Cream: (makes about 1 litre)
- 600 ml whipped cream
- 200 gr speculaas
- 3 tbsp speculaas spices
- 4 eggs
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp brown castor sugar

Crumble the speculaas but leave some pieces a little bigger. Put aside.
In one bowl combine whipped cream and sugar until you have a creamy mixture, In another bowl beat the eggs with the castor sugar until they are airy. Add the speculaas spices to the egg mixture and stir through. Then fold the whipped cream mixture into the egg mixture with a spatula without losing too much air. Lastly add the pieces of speculaas and stir through once more. Pour the fluid mixture into a baking tray and place for at least 6 hours in the freezer.
