Homemade speculoos (or Cookie Butter) ice cream layered with crushed speculoos cookies and a warm homemade blueberry sauce.
This ice cream is now a serious obsession. In case you couldn’t tell in Monday’s post.
The thing is, despite the fact that it has so much flavor you can most definitely enjoy it thoroughly on its own, I couldn’t leave well enough alone. So I dressed it up with a sauce made from my favorite summer fruit (seriously, I might turn blue this summer) and some cookie crumbs for extra texture. The blueberry sauce is so pretty that this sundae will brighten up your summer table. You can even make a few sundaes ahead of time for entertaining (just wrap and freeze), though, I definitely prefer the blueberry sauce warmed up before serving. It’s sweet but definitely not too sweet (you wouldn’t want an ultra sweet sauce for the cookie butter ice cream) and since you are adding a fruit so high in antioxidants to your ice cream, an extra-large sundae is perfectly acceptable.
Ingredients (per person):
2 scoops Cookie Butter Ice Cream
2-3 tablespoons Blueberry Sauce (see below)
1-2 speculoos cookies broken into small pieces
Layer ice cream, warmed blueberry sauce, and broken cookies; serve and enjoy!
Warm Blueberry Sundae Sauce
285 grams / 10 ounces (~2 cups) fresh blueberries (frozen can be substituted for slightly longer cooking time)
70 grams / 2 1/2 ounces (~1/3 cup) granulated sugar
1/2 fluid ounce / 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
10 grams / 3/8 ounces (~1 tablespoon) cornstarch
Place blueberries, sugar and lemon juice in a medium pot stove with medium heat
Stir occasionally until some of the berries begin to break down and juice begins to form (~4 minutes)
Turn the heat to high, add cornstarch and stir quickly until sauce reaches desired thickness (1-2 minutes)
Serve immediately or reheat gently before using; store leftovers covered or in an airtight container up to one week
