TWD postscript -- dacquoise becomes sundae

In my last post I reported that the dacquoise was pretty good, but not our favorite. News flash -- it is great when you turn the components into a sundae!


Haagen-Daz vanilla ice cream, pineapple chunks, white chocolate ganache, caramel sauce, broken-up dacquoise, toasted coconut.

I rather like the dacquoise as little crunchy bits. And the white chocolate is kind of nice as long as it is a subtle whisper in the background...

I guess my heart belongs to down-home desserts. Fancy bowls are optional but fun.

You know, I kind of like dacquoise in its crunch state as well. I served some scraps like little cookies just spread with the basil ganache and I liked it better than the end result of my assembled dessert. Great idea to serve it this way.

Oh, what a great idea this was to turn it into a sundae! Smart, very very smart!
