So many desserts, so little time!  This week I have wanted every sweet that’s been posted from the Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake to all the desserts made with

I make a lot of ice cream from scratch, but in a pinch I go for Haagen Dazs. It’s so creamy and the vanilla is a great vehicle for lots of flavors. I’ve added fresh mint or fresh basil and served on plum tarts or apple pie.  You can fold in your favorite chopped candy bar, a la Cold Stone Creamery, or do as I did for this week’s 10- Minute Happy Hour and make it boozy.  I chose spiced rum, but this works with numerous liquors like whiskey or another one of my favorites, Pedro Ximenez Sherry.  

This week I recreate an old favorite ice cream flavor, Rum Raisin, by simply topping some slightly softened ice cream with a drizzle of spiced rum and a sprinkling of mixed raisins for an insanely good boozy treat. It’s the perfect adult indulgence in minutes.
