Gingerbread Financier

Gingerbread Financier topped with Gingerbread Ice Cream and Candy Cane Tuiles

I hope you have enjoyed part I and II of my Holiday trifecta dessert so far.

To recap, we started out with a simple to make, yet sophisticated Tuile cookie. Using a Candy Cane cookie cutter we cut out and sprinkled our tuile cookies with candied goji berries as soon as we took them out of the oven. We also added a little Framboise Liqueur to the simple syrup in which we cooked the goji berries in for a little added punch.

We then moved on to a creamy gingerbread ice cream that contained just enough spice to unite our gingerbread financier and tuile cookie, to create a unique yet very festive holiday dessert.

I know most of you couldn’t wait for the Gingerbread Ice Cream post. But, it surely wouldn’t be a “Trifecta” without the backbone of our dessert… the rich and buttery Gingerbread Financier.

So without further ado… I give you my interpretation of Chef Sherry Yard’s Gingerbread Financier, enjoy!

Today I’m going to share with you part two of my holiday trifecta dessert, which consists of a Gingerbread Financier, topped with a subtle Gingerbread Ice Cream, and a Candy Cane shapped Tuile topped with Candided Goji berries.

We started this trifecta which I pictured in my previous post with Candied Goji Berry Topped Tuiles in the shape of Candy Canes.

S'mores Tart

There’s a certain birthday coming up in a few days… 13 to be exact.

I began being reminded of this event as soon as the last birthday in the family occurred, which was back in August.

Since then, I have been reminded of said event at least once per day, every day, since about the 1st of September, and… I have a funny feeling the number of daily reminders will begin to increase as the day approaches.

Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream

Yes it’s a fact, I ♥ Ice Cream!

Pretty much any frozen treat for that matter, gelato, frozen yogurt, granita… you get the picture.

There is one particular flavor of ice cream I’ve been daydreaming about for quite some time now though.

I’m sure you’ve seen it in your grocer’s freezer… Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns Ice Cream (Caramel Ice Cream with Cinnamon Bun Dough & A Caramel Streusel Swirl).

If you haven’t tried it already, I’m here to tell you it’s fantastic and you should definitely give it a try.

Here is my version of Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns Ice Cream.
