The Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino Is Back — but Is It Better?

Coat The Back Of A Spoon

Definition: Coat The Back Of A Spoon


Coat The Back Of A Spoon
A cooking technique used to test the doneness of a sauce or more typically, egg based custard. Place a spoon - wooden works well, but metal is fine too - in the mixture. Remove, and run your finger through the middle of the sauce/custard. If a clear path is left and an even run-less film is left on the spoon, the mixture is ready. Depending on the recipe the film will be thin or thick.

Ok, SU3 I would give this strawberry semifreddo recipe a try: it's a little different than the pistachio and incorporates vanilla and lemon juice.

I figured it might be difficult, but thank you for the link to the tips party. :) The Semifreddo sounds delish and simple to do. Question though! If I wanted strawberries instead of pistachios - do I just substitute one for the other in the recipe. Or would there be any other changes?? THANKS!!!

SU3 it might be tough to make ice cream without the machine, however it can be done. Check out these tips and consider making a semifreddo instead.

Speaking of making ice cream... :P How do you go through the process *without* the ice cream maker machine thing... I have no idea what it's called. But I'm really interesting in making the homemade strawberry ice cream you girls posted.

When I used to make ice cream (back when I had time!) I was always happy to reach this custard-y stage because it meant I was that much closer to finishing (and then being able to eat) my dessert!
