Spiced sweet potato cream with pastry flakes and playful white chocolate curls.
During the holidays, sweet potato ice cream is a non-negotiable for us. There’s always some version of fresh sweet potatoes roasted until impossibly nutty and then blended with fragrant spices and grass-grazed milk. Sweet Potato Eclair ice cream—made with fresh sweet potatoes from family-run Matthews Ridge Farms in Arkansas, scented with Vietnamese cinnamon, and dotted with vanilla pastry flakes and white chocolate bits—may be our best yet. It’s inspired by the fashionable eclairs on display in every pastry case in Europe. Fancy oblong pastries stuffed with flavored cream and glazed with brightly colored chocolate.
