Ice Cream Tarts

These ice cream tarts were inspired by these ginger ice cream tartlets by Jules at Stonesoup (her blog is amazing!) and the mini cheesecakes I made a couple of weeks ago.

They were quick to prepare and tasted delicious. I am really enjoying the taste of the old butternut snap at the moment!

Ice Cream Tarts

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet butternut snaps
  • 2 litres good quality vanilla ice cream

Method:
1. Remove the ice cream from its tub and into a large bowl. Break it up and allow it to soften. Crush the butternut snap biscuits in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.

2. Place premium quality patty pans into regular size muffin tins. Add a heaped tablespoon of biscuit crumbs to each patty pan.  Give the crumbs a pat down with the rolling pin, to make them stay together.

3.Stir the ice cream well, so it is easy to manipulate.

The base is a little crumbly so you do need utensils to eat the tarts!

    I was wondering how you could eliminate the crumbs, I know my little ones would probably just leave the crumbs after eating the ice cream .Could you just melt a little butter and add to the crumbs, or, don’t crush the biscuits, heat/soften them in the oven and mould them into muffin tin?

    I’d add a little (like 1-2 tablespoons) of condensed milk to the biscuit crumbs to combine it. Experiment though, because when making a slice, it’s a packet of chocolate ripple biscuits to a half tin of condensed milk.

    I’d also take the ice cream one step further and make an easy creamy ice cream at home:

    Whip 600mL of cream and add a tin of condensed milk. Beat until combined. Pour into a plastic-wrap lined tin (or in this case, the muffin forms) and allow to set in the freezer for approx 3 hours.

    Hi Nicole,

    I’m new to your blog and have been happy with all your wonderful suggestions to help calm a busy household, also your recipes are well illustrated which is nice and easy to follow. Question, how are you still having soup in summer??? I like the idea of your weekly and monthly menu planning , which I am soon to try, but soup is not likely show on ours for summer :( Also the slow cooker is a staple in my home but it also takes a back seat in summer, so as not to attract lots of flies to the house, do you have any of these issues or is it just something in the country?? Keep up the great work, a true inspiration :)

    Can I use digestive biscuits as substitute for the butternut snaps? I couldn’t find it in my country. Thanks.
