Boozy Butterscotch Chocolate Cookies

Well Dined | Boozy Butterscotch Chocolate Cookies

In my last post, I talked about my February assignment for Secret Recipe Club - Jessie Weaver, The Vanderbilt Wife.  I decided to make the Honey Parmesan Pork from her blog, but also really wanted to make the Boozy Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies... so I did!

The cookies were actually really easy to make - just melt chocolate chips and butter together (it will be a thicker mixture); then add to a beaten mixture of brown sugar, eggs, butterscotch schnapps, and vanilla; then add flour, baking powder, and salt.  Let the mixture sit to firm up, then scoop onto baking sheets.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, and you're done!  I thought these tasted fudgey like brownies, and they were a big hit at my game night.

Curry Banana Ice Cream

Curry.  Banana.  Ice Cream.  When I found this recipe, I flipped.  It sounded AMAZING.  One of the best truffles I've ever had was a curry banana flavor.

And there aren't just plain old bananas in here, either.  No - they are roasted bananas.  And not only that, but roasted with brown sugar and butter.  Is anyone else drooling right now?

These smell incredible when they come out of the oven, covered in sticky brown sugar goodness.  You scrape all that sweet stuff into a blender with whole milk and your favorite sweet curry powder, then into the ice cream maker - simple as that.  I am seriously in love with this ice cream.

I am also in love with this milkshake that I made with it, chocolate syrup, and Bailey's.  Boozy milkshake for the win!

Curry Banana Ice Cream
adapted from Scoop Adventures

3 medium-sized ripe bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp sweet curry powder (I used this one)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Prepare bananas and toss them with the brown sugar and butter in a small (2-quart) baking dish.  Bake for 40 minutes, stirring once during baking, until the bananas are browned and cooked through.

Scrape contents of the dish (bananas and the thick sugar syrup) into a blender or food processor.  Add the milk, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, salt, and curry powder, and puree until smooth.

Chill mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator (4 hours).  Pour into your ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Transfer to a plastic container, press wax paper onto surface, and freeze until firm (about 4 hours).
