Blackberry Pistachio Crunch Sundae is my recipe of the day with the blogging  group  Sunday Funday. We are sharing  ice cream related recipes today. This is  in celebration of  National Ice Cream Day.

I decided to make a riff off something I had at a gelato stand recently. Theirs had sort of a blackberry swirl in the  gelato with  a bit of baklava  and pistachio crunch. We loved it. But here’s mine:

And of course here is a pic of the one  from Dojo  Gelato in Cincinnati. I think  it  would be good either way with a blackberry  sauce or fresh berries.

I used caramel as well so sauce wasn’t needed.

But anyhoo- it goes to show not every special dessert needs  to be made with ice cream from scratch. Sometimes it’s the add-ins that make it the star of the show.
