Anybody remember the Ice Cream Truck? It was a summer ritual back in the day, when its musical jingle sent neighborhood kids running out of the house, nickels and dimes in hand, eager for a frozen delight.
Today, you can satisfy that craving over at the Marriott Singer Island, where they have revived a summer Ice Cream Truck classic, Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream.
If you want to make it yourself, the Marriott is sharing the recipe:
· 1 qt. heavy cream
· 6 oz. egg yolks (approx. 9-10)
· 10 oz. sugar
· 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
· 2 tsp. orange oil
Bring heavy cream and half of the sugar to a boil. Temper the egg yolks and other half of the sugar into the hot liquid. Cook to 178 degrees. Strain and pour over cream cheese, stirring until fully melted. Add in orange oil.
Cool mixture over an ice bath and pour into ice cream maker; process according to directions until slight firm. Let freeze for 24 hours before scooping.
