Leche Flan Ice Cream Sandwich | Daily Prompt: You, the Sandwich

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be? Describe it. (Bonus points if you give us a recipe!)

“Mati” would be an ice cream sandwich.

But not just any old ice cream sandwich, mind you!

First off, with the star of the show: leche flan ice cream. Yes, there is such a thing. They are a combination of my two favorite desserts: leche flan and ice cream.

Leche flan, though not a dessert of Filipino origin, is practically ubiquitous in the country. Some regions have their versions of the recipe and variations in presentation. So while it is familiar sight, it can still surprise you—depending on where you are here.

So it would be soft, so soft that it would easily melt the second it touched the tongue. But since it is ice cream, there would be a texture that isn’t usually found in flans. Their duet would result to such creaminess that is just utter pleasure.

In comes the surprise help from the cookie. But I don’t want it to just be any run-of-the-oven cookie. I want to have an unmistakable Filipino signature to it. I want it to have this terribly light taste but with a great crunch so that it won’t drown in the leche flan ice cream.

When you bite into this sandwich, I want it to taste like a sweet symphony in your mouth. Something familiar and yet it is something new. It is a song that you know and would want to finish every single time you hear it.

That’s how I want “Mati” the leche flan ice cream sandwich to be like!

  1. The name of the place is I like it like that.
    Flim, flam, jelly on the jam,
    Slithering down my throat,
    dripping on my coat,
    just another outlet,
    flim, flam,
    seafood paella,
    leche flan,
    catchy, man.


  2.

  3. I had left a comment yesterday. I guess it didn’t post it.
    I’ll go back and read this and repost. Just a minute. ~~~~ : – )
    Ah yes, leche flan ice cream.
    I believe that would be the tastiest ice cream sandwich and quite popular. In Puerto Rico flan is on all of the menus and in many households. It’s a favorite of many. I believe now-a-days they add a caramel topping that’s toasted just like crème brulee.
    Very nice entry for the prompt … you must submit to an ice cream company.
