Today is National Soft Ice Cream Pie Day, so to go along with the crowd, I found this recipe to share.
The taco truck might be considered a “classic” when it comes to street food in LA, but for many of us, the first memories we have of “meals on wheels” isn’t a meal at all...It’s ice cream.
Remember the ice cream truck? The thought of a distant, high-pitched jingling melody seems almost cliché, but it’s not. It is a real sense memory. We loved those red white and blue rockets, strawberry shortcake popsicles, ice cream cone drumsticks (we could never figure out why they were called that) and ice cream sandwiches.
Ok, actually, we never liked those bricks of vanilla ice cream sandwiches between two flimsy rectangles of chocolate wafer that inevitably left sticky chocolate ovals on your fingertips.
But that was then, and what we do like now are the ice cream sandwiches from Coolhaus, one of the many food trucks participating in the original LA Street Food Fest’s Summer Tasting.
Coolhaus makes “architecturally inspired” ice cream sandwiches. Their all-natural handmade ice creams are scooped into enormous globes and packed between two perfectly crisp-yet-chewy-soft cookies. They’ve shared with us their recipe for Browned Butter Candied Bacon Ice Cream. There’s no recipe for the chocolate chip cookies, but we didn’t “brownedbuttercandiedbaconareyoukiddingus?” … really notice.
