PeteyBird Goat Cheese and Fig Ice Cream Roll with Short Bread Cookies

Photographing for Amanda at 5280.com means I get to meet some of the greatest chefs and entrepenuers in town.  My most recent assignment was to photograph these amazing mini ice-cream sandwiches from PeteyBird. Pete of PeteyBird uniquely crafted ice cream sandwiches is engineer turned baker which is fabulous for us Denverites. The creatively flavored sandwiches are ideally sized and will melt in your mouth...just in time for summer!  Pete has mastered all things ice cream and cookies during his lengthy R&D process and this was one of his fabulous creations.  Similar to a savory, spreadable cheese log and cracker duo, this sweet version is a perfect dinner party dessert. The recipe may look a bit daunting but Pete swears it's not that bad (it's really not!).  Well worth a show-stopping and interactive dessert. Also, here are a few of his few ice cream sandwiches first talked about on Amanda Faison's Table Talk blog post.

  3. When the mixture is ready, use a laddle to transfer 1/2 a cup of the mixture to the egg yolks, whisking continuously.

  8. Place the ice cream into a container.  Place the container into the freezer for at least 6 hours
  9. Cover the cutting board with syran wrap and use tape to hold tight.  Roll the cutting board into a 2.5 inch tube and use tape to keep tupe in place.  Add a piece of syran wrap to one end to form a stop
  10. Scoop ice cream into the open end of the tube.  Press down to pack in
  11. Place tube into the freezer for at least 6 hours
