Disney’s French Fried Ice Cream

For years I have desired to have French Fried Ice Cream like I used to get when we visited the Disney Inn.  The Disney Inn became Shades Of Green.  Shades Of Green is a military resort on the Disney World property.

A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to make a real nice dinner for our anniversary.  A fresh garden salad was served.  I made a main course of Crab Meat Ravioli which comes from Tangaroa Terrace at the Polynesian Resort.  An accompanyment of Garlic bread was also available.  I made a dessert of French Fried Ice Cream.

Notes:

  • I made the fresh pasta dough, and formed them with a ravioli/pierogi form that we had.
  • I used a deep frier for the French Fried Ice Cream.

We ate these for our anniversary, and then I made it again a few days later when my uncle came up to visit.  No one seemed to have any problems with the food.  My uncle actually had a second serving so it must not have been that bad.

Here is the recipe for the Crab Meat Ravioli

  • 1 lb crab meat
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 1/2 cup minced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup cracker crumbs
  • 2/3 cup white sauce (additional recipe)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

Disney Cooking In My House

We love Disney cooking when we are on vacation in Disney World, or on the Disney Cruise.  For Christmas this year I had to get my wife some more things for her kitchen.  Among other gifts I got her a brand new Disney waffle maker, and a Disney salt n pepper shaker.  She has a rather large salt n pepper shaker collection so I think that I will be stopping for a while.  I wanted to get her some really nice cooking things, but I couldn’t locate them locally, and I don’t do my shopping until late.  I saw a Disney Winnie The Pooh popup tea pot, and same really nice cookware like they use in the Disney kitchens.  I couldn’t get them this year, but maybe next year.  What is weird is that each time I searched for Disney cookware I happened to get results for le creuset cookware.  They don’t make Disney, but the cookware looked really nice.  Maybe I should email them directly to see if they have anything that would work for my needs.  I am trying to locate the recipe for Disney’s Bananas Foster.  That was the best, but 1900 Park Fare stopped serving it, and I have been very upset since because I can’t find it anywhere on grounds.
