Fake-out Fried Ice Cream recipe!

I am so excited about this guest post from Lisa at My Little Blogspot- such a crowd pleasing dessert and super simple too.


2 C. Corn Flakes, plain
2 T. Sugar
2 tsp. Cinnamon
Vanilla Ice Cream
1 Flour Tortilla
Whipped Cream and Dessert Topping for garnish

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Take half of the cinnamon sugar, and in a food processor combine sugar and corn flakes. Pulse until you have a fine crumb.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Using a standard ice cream scoop, about 1/2 c., scoop balls of vanilla ice cream. With your hands quickly form a round ball about the size of a baseball. Then roll immediately into cornflake mixture, coating evenly. Place on cookie sheet and freeze for several hours. (This should be enough crumb for 4 servings.)

When you are ready to serve dessert, heat about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a skillet. Cut the flour tortilla into eight wedges. (I use a pizza cutter to make quick even pieces.)

Fry the tortilla in hot oil for about 30 seconds per side. Fry only a few pieces at a time so you don't crowd the pan. Lay on paper towels and dust with remaining cinnamon sugar while they are hot.

Next it's just assembly. Place a few tortilla pieces on a plate, put ice cream ball on top, and drizzle with dessert topping and whipped cream.
