Dessert & Baked Goods » Fig, Goat Cheese & Walnut Gelato
This frozen treat gets a delicious, subtle tang from goat cheese that's whisked into a creamy custard base. Meghann Osmon of BiNA Osteria also adds buttermilk to balance the fat content of the egg yolks (did you know that buttermilk is naturally low in fat?). The base is placed in an ice cream maker, and processed. When the gelato reaches soft-serve consistency, mix in chewy dried mission figs and crunchy walnuts. Freeze, then scoop and savor.
