Holey Cream

      One of my very good friends from college, Lindsay, came to stay with me in New York last weekend. I am so grateful that she did because a) I love her and it had been awhile since we had had an extended visit and b) she watches the food network and found some amazing places to eat that I had never heard of and would probably never have come across otherwise. Today, I will share her great knowledge with you. A place that I can only describe as a hidden gem. A New York treasure (in my opinion-and I am betting yours if you are a dessert lover like me).

      It is called Holey Cream, and it is located in Hell's Kitchen between 52nd and 53rd streets and 9th avenue. I am not going to go into an extended description because nothing I can say would adequately give justice to how amazingly delicious their desserts are. All I can say is donut ice cream sandwich. DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH.

      Basically, they take a plain hot donut, slice it in half and put ice cream in the middle. Any flavor you wish (I won't even go into the fact that they make their own ice cream with flavors like red velvet, pretzel, and oatmeal raisin cookie). Then, they cover it with frosting- again, you choose the flavor, and a topping of your choice. Mine was a strawberry frosted donut with cookies and cream ice cream, and sprinkles. Lindsay also chose cookies and cream ice cream, but she got vanilla frosting and extra oreo cookies on top. When I saw the end product, I honestly thought that it would not-could not be as amazing as it looked, but I was very wrong. So wrong. More wrong than I have ever been in my life. It was even better than I ever could have dreamed. It far surpassed my wildest expectations in a dessert. That is really all I have to say about Holey Cream except-GO. Go get your own donut ice cream sandwich. Immediately, if not sooner. It is so good, the calories do not even count (ok-not true, but it is SO SO worth the splurge).
