White Chocolate Sherbet

Pastry chef Gale Gand shares this recipe for white chocolate sherbet from her cookbook "Chocolate and Vanilla."

  • yield: Makes about 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise, or 1 tablespoon vanilla-bean paste
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • Strawberry Mash, for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Prepare a large ice-water bath; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In a medium saucepan, bring milk, 2/3 cup water, vanilla bean, and sugar almost to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in white chocolate until melted. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl set over the ice-water bath. Stir occasionally until mixture has chilled, about 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Pour mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze sherbet according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a covered container and freeze at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. Let sherbet soften slightly at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving if it seems too hard. Serve topped with strawberry mash, if desired.
