Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches for the Bacon Lover

Ice Cream Sandwich

If making ice cream at home wasn’t a family tradition growing up (like it was for Cooking Channel editor Kirsten Vala), making the good stuff yourself might seem like the tallest of tasks. But like any other goodie we’ve grown accustomed to ordering from over the counter, making the frozen treat at home is far simpler than most are apt to assume.

Well aware of this, Natasha Case from Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches (recently featured on Cooking Channel’s food-truck show Eat St.) took it a step further. Back in the fall of 2008 she began not only making ice cream, but baking cookies out of co-founder Frey Estrellar’s kitchen, too. Three years later, their irresistible ice cream sandwiches can now be found in Los Angeles where it all began, as well as Austin, New York City, and even the Hamptons.

It being National Ice Cream Month and all, we caught up with Natasha, who was kind enough to share two ice cream sandwich tips, and one of Coolhaus’ most popular recipes.

By the Book Giveaway: Splendid Homemade Ice Creams

Farmers' Market Sundae

Jeni's Farmers' Market Sundae is fresh summer berries and fruit topped with Lemon Frozen Yogurt.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams
When I was young, the Fourth of July was the one day a year when I remember my family breaking out the ice cream maker, in all its mysterious glory. We filled the big wooden outer container with ice and rock salt, poured a cream and sugar mixture into the inside container and set it to churning. And, miraculously, we’d end up with a creamy and satisfying vanilla ice cream, with a special homemade taste and texture I’d look forward to year after year.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home proves that homemade ice cream isn’t just for the Fourth of July anymore (although it definitely should be part of your holiday weekend plans). Jeni, the owner of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio, takes us season by season through the freshest and most creative flavor combos imaginable. All recipes are based on Jeni’s four-step process, using home equipment to make amazing, artisan American ice creams. Take a few of her recipes for a test churn: Farmers’ Market Sundae, Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream and Salty Caramel Ice Cream.
