Toronto's newest outrageous ice cream sandwich comes with two butter tarts
Decadent, famously Canadian butter tarts consist of a flaky pastry shell filled with a rich and buttery caramel centre.
Now there is a spot in Toronto to get an outrageously delicious butter tart ice cream sandwich.
Owner of Gerrard St. Bakery Paul Clementi, told blogTO that "We do a lot of butter tart incorporated things. A lot of recipes stem from the butter tart itself. We have a butter tart cake, butter tart cookie, butter tart gelato and now a butter tart gelato sandwich."
This treat will be available at the cafe starting in July and will sell for between $10 - $12 a piece.
The bakery also provides the option to create-your-own ice cream sandwich with House Scoops Gelato and any tart or square - the options are endless!
The collaboration between the bakery and House of Scoops consists of butter tarts and filling from Gerrard St. Bakery and then gelato-maker and former sous chef from Buca, Matthew Cribari mixes the ingredients with fresh milk and cream from Sheldon Creek Dairy in Loretto, ON.
The bakery even has a butter tart, Nanaimo bar hybrid treat - the eh bar ($5) which is a Nanaimo bar with a butter tart filling.
The bakery is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
