Turmeric gives the ice cream a subtle yellow hue. Not that looks matter, but a visual hint of the flavor is always nice. If you want to make a showoff type dessert, swirl a little lemon curd into ice cream. As for the cookie crumbs, they’re purely optional. But crumbs do lend a more authentic pie feeling to the ice cream.
I remember my Nonna making dinner one day and letting me snack on ice cream with her. Uh oh, I wasn’t supposed to tell.
Carry on and eat dessert first.
