Fried Ice Cream Cheesecake Recipe


I have a GLORIOUS new cookbook to tell you about today! My friend Glory has written her first cookbook called Glorious Layered Desserts and it is every bit as fabulous as you might imagine. You may know Glory from her popular blog Glorious Treats. The first half of the book is filled with detailed instructions for her deliciously creative layered desserts, and the second half contains her essential recipes such as crusts, crumbles, fillings, sauces, toppings, and more. The way that this book is written makes it easy to mix and match any layered dessert that you desire!

    The fried ice-cream cheesecake isn’t even fried?! I love cheesecake but this is a new one for us. We live in Buffalo where there is some great homemade cheesecake but this might top the list.
