From the Chef: I remember eating fried ice cream at a Mexican restaurant in Connecticut. It was always a fun way to end dinners out with girlfriends. I love recipes that deliver on a favorite food without the intricacy or challenge that the original version calls for. This no-fry ice cream tastes just like it was deep-fried but without hot oil and temperamental timing.
