Cookie Spread Ice Cream | Speculaas Flavour

In a long winded manner I made speculaas cookies so that I could make cookie spread in order to make this cookie spread ice cream. It reminds me of our time in Paris where I first tasted this.

The Western Cape has a fairly moderate winter climate with temperatures varying by a few degrees during the day. It does not get very cold here and my wardrobe reflects this. We usually travel to Europe in spring and autumn and the weather is mostly quite good. Needless to say, we are not going for the weather. But more often than not it will rain while we are there, and we have winter rain in the Cape. For that I have a Colombia jacket that has a zip in liner. At home I mostly use the jacket without the inner and I tend to wear them separately when we are overseas. Mostly because everything is heated so you need layers. My first layer is a heat generation top and unless it is very cold I just wear the anorak part of my jacket.

But, our next two overseas trips are planned for a colder time of the year. Not mid-winter cold thankfully. We will be in Scotland in October and England in February and I suspect we might even get snow. The jacket and inner liner alone are not going to be enough so I have to go out and buy some jerseys. I will also need a beanie, gloves and a scarf. Last week I bought myself a pair of leather hiking boots. The thick soles should keep my feet warm but just in case I have also bought some heat generation and polar fleece lined socks. You see, I do not like to be cold! Unless of course it is from eating a bowl of ice cream.

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!

  • I really shrivel up in the cold! I prefer warmer climates for sure and at the moment in Cusco it is 2 degrees C!! Puffer jacket and thermal territory. I love speculoos biscuits!

  • Can't wait to hear about Scotland when you go sounds pretty amazing like this ice cream;)

  • that sounds like a lot of steps! cookies and then spread and then ice cream. sounds so worth it though. i don't have much patience for making ice cream but i think i'd wait for this one (:

  • Hooray, an ice cream recipe. Just what I need. Now I need to go and read who to make the cookie spread. Just to warn you that the UK is freezing in February. You need a very good jacket or you will be miserable. Scotland, of course, is freezing all year round so you can wear the same jacket for both trips [smile].

    • We have done Scotland in the snow and thankfully I have a jacket for that. It has been years since I did England in proper winter. Hopefully I can find suitable pants for that.

  • Cinnamon makes everything desirable. This ice cream looks absolutely divine.

  • Oh what a fun ice cream flavor! yep, take it from a Canadian, work those layers!

  • This is just yummy Tandy. Also I still haven't been to Scotland so I can't wait to hear about it.

    • I cannot wait to go, even though I don't have clothes yet for our trip to keep me warm :)
