Perfect ice cream for cobblers, crisps...

The new Haagen Daas cinnamon dulce de lece ice cream makes certain fruit desserts ridiculously good. It's especially tasty with peach or apple desserts. Just thought I would share....

Any other favorites out there?

  1. Yes for any cobbler or crisp, or pie or just fruit plain old vanilla it great it doesn`t
    have to cost much and a good creamy vanilla is hard to beat.

      Breyers French Vanilla is my current favorite for Peach Melba and Apple Tatin
      I do like cinnamon ice cream too.

          Haagen Daz Creme Brulee is also very good with fruit desserts.

    2. I find that caramel & sea salt ice cream (from Montreal shop MeuMeu) goes well with fruit crisps or pies!

      2. If you can find Sweet Cream ice cream you can't beat it!!!

        1. I had a mascarpone gelato with a strawberry rhubarb crisp this weekend--great combination

          1. Some of the newer slow-churned ice creams are really good and creamy, perfect for topping pie or cobbler.
