I discovered this little trick to use up any ice cream that was languishing in the freezer. This is an easy recipe that’s designed to be flexible enough to deal with various amounts of left over ice cream. The result is something just a bit sweet and a bit like a scone. So I call it the Ice Cream Scone.
Melted ice cream. Any flavor. About a pint.
1 to 1 1/2 cups flour, preferably self-rising. (If you don’t have self-rising flour, add a teaspoon of baking powder and a pinch of salt to a cup of flour.)
If you have more than a pint of ice cream, you’ll need more flour. Less ice cream, less flour. It’s hard to mess this one up. You could even get creative by making multi-color, multi-flavor scones if you have small amounts of different ice cream flavors.
An 8 inch pie tin or cake pan. You can also use a muffin tin for this to make individual scones.
Step one – melt the ice cream. You use the microwave to speed up this process. The more melted it is, the easier it is to stir.
Step two – preheat the oven to 350 and grease and flour the pie tin or cake pan.
Step three - pick up a big wooden spoon or other stirring implement and pour some of the flour into the ice cream container. Go ahead and use the same container the ice cream came in. It makes clean up easier. Start stirring.
Step four – add more flour and stir until the results looks about the consistency of a good biscuit batter.
Step five – pour the batter from the ice cream container into the baking pan.
Step six – bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
Step six – let cool a bit and then enjoy. If you use a pie tin, you can cut the result into triangles, which seem more scone-like to me. If you’re feeling traditional, make a cup of tea to enjoy with your ice cream scone.
Step seven – go to the store and buy more ice cream, because you now have room in the freezer.
