Celebrate with Champagne!

Today on the Martha Stewart's website a delicious sampler of recipes to celebrate the New Year with one fun ingredient in common! Champagne


Try Peach Rose-Champagne Sorbet!


Ingredients

Makes about 4 cups
  • 1 3/4 pounds ripe peaches
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups rose Champagne
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. Put peaches into a large saucepan. Add sugar and enough Champagne to come one-third of the way up sides of the peaches (about 1 1/2 cups). Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until peaches are soft, 10 to 14 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour peaches and liquid through a fine sieve into a medium bowl, and reserve liquid; let peaches stand until cool enough to handle.
  2. Remove skin from peaches, and cut flesh into chunks; discard skin and pits. Puree peaches in a food processor with reserved cooking liquid. Stir in remaining Champagne, the corn syrup and lemon juice. Refrigerate until cold, about 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to an ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to an airtight container, and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.


Enjoy!!

You will need:

3/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla

Nabisco vanilla wafers (24)
Cotton Candy (enough to decorate 24 cupcakes)

What to do:

Let them cool for 30 minutes and then place them in the fridge for at least 1 hr.

When you are ready to serve them, add cotton candy to the top, as if it was frosting! and voila you will have Snowy Cheesecake Cupcakes!
