Baked Ice Cream Pastry Recipe?

My husband and I had the most amazing dessert at a restaurant and we are now obsessed with trying to recreate it. Titled "Baked Ice Cream with Cranberry Coulis", the dessert consisted of a ball of vanilla ice cream wrapped in a pastry dough lightly lined with what tasted like almond paste. The pastry was baked to a golden brown and drizzled with a cranberry sauce. The combination worked beautifully, with the ice cream just barely soft under the pastry/almond layer. Wow!! Does anyone out there have a recipe for something similar?

  1. Are you sure it wasn't fried? The high temp and conduction of oil allows cooking of the dough without melting the ice cream.

      No, the pastry surrounding the ice cream was definitely not fried. I have found many recipes for fried ice cream, but this dessert was distinctly different.
