Ice cream is probably my favorite dessert. I’d rather have ice cream than a cookie, and it definitely beats out almost every cake. Plain, with fruit, with a cookie, a drizzle of hot fudge on classic vanilla, along side warm pie, any which way, ice cream does it for me. There is a lot of mediocre ice cream out there, so I was delighted to discover Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia, which has intense, dense ice cream that doesn’t leave a greasy feeling in your mouth (think HaagenDaas). Vanilla bean, ginger, coffee, black raspberry, green tea and peach were all spectacular.
