Helado frito en hojaldre
Eat these moderately, like I do

I cannot get over the fact that no one (apart from me) has prepared this recipe since I published it 6 years ago. It was one of the first recipes I posted: Fried ice-cream in puff pastry. (Excuse my photos, at the time I used to shot with my mobile phone!)

And now that cronuts and churro ice cream sandwiches have become so fashionable, I thought it was time to bring back this recipe which, believe me, it is utterly delicious!

Please tell me you are going to give it a try!
