There is a small but very strong faction that believes that goat cheese deserves a place not only on the cheese cart but on the dessert cart as well. These supporters are fond of whipping chèvre into creamy cheesecakes, baking batches of goat cheese brownies, and churning this favorite cheese into lovely scoops of Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Roasted Red Cherries.

This recipe comes from Jeni Britton Bauer's Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home. By combining cream cheese and goat cheese, she's created an ice cream with an incredible creaminess.

Lovers of all things goaty would be more than happy to spoon away this creamy, grassy ice cream on its own, but Britton Bauer adds a bit of sweetness and intrigue by way of slow roasted cherries. Slowly cooked down to the consistency of pie filling, they have a warmly concentrated flavor that runs ribbons of sweet-tart cherries through the ice cream.
