Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Roasted Cherries

It's currently 100 degrees in my apartment. Need I say more? It's time for another ice cream recipe.

One that's creamy and tangy and sweet and a far cry from the average vanilla ice cream. Add in a heap of roasted fresh cherries and this ice cream goes over the top. Once again, thanks Jeni.

{Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Roasted Cherries}
Adapted from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home

Ice Cream:
2 cups whole milk
1-1/2 cup heavy cream
3 eggs (I pasteurize mine)
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
4-oz. goat cheese, softened

In a medium-large saucepan, mix milk, cream, eggs and sugars. Bring to a simmer. Add in goat cheese and salt. Simmer until slightly thickened, 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla and chill thoroughly.

Roasted Cherries:
2 cups cherries, pitted
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons corn starch

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together ingredients in a baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until cherry mixture thickens and bubbles. Remove from oven and allow to cool, then chill in refrigerator.

This stuff is like cheesecake, but better. Because it is frozen and creamy and perfect and makes any hot day worth it if you can eat this. Bring on the heat.
