- 2 1/2 cups (625ml) thickened cream
- 250g spreadable cream cheese
- 1 cup (250ml) milk
- 8 Coles Brand Australian free range egg yolks
- 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
- 3 Arnott's Butternut Snap cookie biscuits, crushed
- 500g fresh cherries, halved, stones removed
- 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
- 1/4 cup (60ml) water
- 1 teaspoon almond essence
- Step 1To make the cherry ripple, place the cherries, sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 mins or until cherries soften and mixture reduces by half and thickens. Set aside to cool.
- Step 2Process the cherry mixture in a food processor until smooth. Add almond essence and process until combined.
- Step 3Combine the cream, cream cheese and milk in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring just to a simmer and remove from heat.
- Step 4Use an electric mixer to beat the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until thick and pale. Gradually stir in the cream mixture, in batches, until combined. Pour into a clean saucepan and place over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 8-10 mins or until custard coats the back of a spoon. Set aside to cool.
- Step 5Add half the cherry ripple and stir to combine. Pour into a shallow metal container. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 3 hours or until firm.
- Step 6Roughly break up the ice-cream with a metal spoon. Transfer to a food processor and process until smooth. Return half the ice-cream to the metal container and add half the remaining cherry ripple. Gently swirl to create a marbled effect. Repeat with remaining ice-cream and cherry ripple. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 3 hours or until firm.
- Step 7Preheat oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Spread the biscuit crumbs over the lined tray. Bake for 5 mins or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.
- Step 8To serve, scoop the ice-cream into serving bowls and sprinkle with the biscuit crumbs.
