Philadelphia Ice Cream Recipe

Recipe: Philadelphia Ice Cream

History of Philadelphia Ice Cream:
Philadelphia Ice Cream, also known as Philadelphia Style Ice Cream, is a classic type of ice cream that originated in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is a simple and smooth ice cream made without eggs, unlike the traditional French-style ice cream. This style of ice cream became popular in the 18th century and remains a beloved dessert today. The absence of eggs in the recipe gives it a lighter texture, allowing the flavors to shine through.

Fun Facts:
- Philadelphia Ice Cream is often referred to as "Philly-style" ice cream.
- It is believed that Philadelphia Ice Cream was created by Italian immigrants who settled in Philadelphia in the 18th century and brought their gelato-making techniques with them.
- This style of ice cream gained popularity in Philadelphia due to its simplicity and the availability of dairy products in the region.
- Philadelphia Ice Cream is typically made with a base of milk, cream, sugar, and flavorings, such as vanilla or chocolate. It can also be customized with various mix-ins like fruits, cookies, or nuts.

Now, let's create a delicious Philadelphia Ice Cream using the provided ingredients:

- 1-1/2 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons Dr. Price's Baking Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons shortening
- 1/3 cup cold water
- 1 quart pitted cherries

1. Preheat your oven to a hot temperature according to the instructions on your baking powder.
2. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
3. Add the shortening to the dry ingredients and lightly rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
4. Gradually add the cold water to the mixture, mixing it in until a stiff dough forms.
5. On a floured board, roll out the dough very thin.
6. Line patty pans (small individual tart pans) with the rolled-out pastry, making sure the edges come well over the sides of the pans.
7. Place the pastry-lined pans in the preheated oven and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
8. While the pastry is baking, wash and pick over the cherries, removing any stems or pits.
9. Once the pastry is baked and cooled, fill each tart with the pitted cherries.
10. Prepare a syrup by following the strawberry pie recipe above, substituting 1/2 cup of cherries for the strawberries.
11. Pour the syrup over the cherries in each tart, ensuring they are well coated.
12. Transfer the filled tarts to the refrigerator and let them chill for at least 2 hours, allowing the flavors to meld together.
13. Once fully chilled, the tarts can be enjoyed as a delicious dessert, or you can transform them into Philadelphia Ice Cream.

To create Philadelphia Ice Cream from the tarts:
1. Remove the tarts from the refrigerator and cut them into smaller pieces.
2. Scoop the tart pieces into a blender or food processor.
3. Add in additional cold milk or cream, according to your desired ice cream consistency. Start with 1 cup and adjust as needed.
4. Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy.
5. Optional: Add extra flavorings like vanilla extract or chocolate syrup, if desired.
6. Once blended, transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions until it reaches a soft serve consistency.
7. If you don't have an ice cream maker, place the blended mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze. Take it out every 30 minutes for the first few hours and give it a good stir to prevent ice crystals from forming.
8. After freezing for about 4-6 hours, the Philadelphia Ice Cream will be ready to serve.
