LeahS [Admin]12/13/10

A while back I ate at Mike’s Bistro and ordered a very similar dessert. I loved the surprise factor of it and decided to replicate it at home. It looks like a crisp, but as you dig your spoon in, you’re rewarded with a cold ice cream. It’s best if you leave it out at room temperature for 8-10 minutes so that the ice cream is softer when you eat it. A friend of mine replaced the frozen blueberries with frozen strawberries and I thought was a great idea.

    8-10 servings







  • LeahS [Admin]


  • 56 oz vanilla ice cream

  • - CRUMBLE:

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup flour

  • ¼ cup margarine (½ stick)

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds


  • 1 (12 oz) package frozen blueberries

  • 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar

  • 2 Tbsp water

  • - GARNISH:

  • - confectioners' sugar

  • - fresh blueberries

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.

  2. To prepare the crumble, mix the sugar, flour, and margarine to form crumbs. Spread on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-25 minutes, mixing with a fork halfway through. Let cool and break into crumbles.

  3. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Toast the sliced almonds on a baking sheet for 8-10 minutes. Combine the ready crumble with the toasted almonds.

  4. To prepare the blueberry sauce, combine the blueberries, vanilla sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Using an immersion blender, blend all ingredients well.

  5. To assemble to blueberry crisps, place 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bottom of a ramekin. Top with 1 tablespoon of blueberry sauce. Add a second scoop & ½ tablespoon of sauce. With the back of a spoon, smooth down the ice cream and sauce to an even layer. Sprinkle with loads of crumble. Freeze

  6. To serve, garnish with confectioners sugar and fresh blueberries.

Made it with Strawberries instead of Blueberries. I kept each layer seperatly and put together just before serving. Everyone loved it.


Don't Let the Ice Cream Ruin This Dessert

Last Friday, when I passed the threshold of Wegmans, I saw that blueberry had arrived--and that I was going to make this for dessert that night.

I hate pareve ice cream and usually refuse to buy or eat it. EWWW. But I had to this week to make Leah's dessert!

I debated which brand to buy. One brand I knew tasted better, but they didn't make a plain vanilla--and I knew a vanilla with chocolate bits in it just wouldnt go. So I bought a brand I knew wouldnt taste good--hoping that the blueberry sauce and crisp would disguise the taste.

It didn't. So while the recipe is great, next time, if I make this for Friday night, I'd make my own ice cream. Otherwise, I'd save it for a dairy meal and use real ice cream.


worked exactly as you said!

I served this on Shavuos, and one guest said 'oh, I know what this is, hot apple pie!' He sure got a surprise when he dug in.

I made it with strawberries, but I think next time I'll do the blueberries for something different.

This is an absolutely delicious fantastic dessert! Made it for company and it was a huge hit. It is very easy to prepare and I also made it with dairy ice cream, which really tasted superb. Everyone that tastes this, request the recipe- the best compliment. Thanks 350- you did a great job with this one!
