There are cookies (the peanut butter-chocolate is dazzlingly good), cupcakes, stuffed brownies, marshmallows pops, and custom-blended sodas and egg creams at sherry b dessert studio in Chappaqua, but, since it’s sweltering July, let’s focus on the ice cream. Made from scratch by Owner and Pastry Chef Sherry Blockinger with high-quality ingredients like Madagascar vanilla, Belgian chocolate, and Counter Culture Coffee, the ice cream flavors here change seasonally (but expect chocolate, vanilla bean, cookies ‘n’ cream, and salted caramel on a regular basis). Her newest flavors are roasted strawberry (pictured top) made from roasted puréed strawberries, and blueberry crisp (below) made with fresh blueberries and bits of streusel. There’s even a next level of sweet goodness at sherry b thanks to their house-made toppings (hot fudge, caramel, and a homemade version of Magic Shell in both dark and white chocolate), something that should be appreciated, as most ice cream vendors are content serving commercial-grade toppings.
Blueberry crisp swirls together ice cream and chunks of delicious streusel.
As flavorful as her scoops are, the best discovery here may be the new line of ice cream sandwiches, including the Fluffernutter with marshmallow fluff ice cream and peanut butter bits between banana bread; the Suzy Q, which sandwiches sweet cream ice cream between chocolate cake; and the Strawberry Shortcake.

No disrespect to the early 1900s Bowery district pushcart vendor who is credited with inventing the ice cream sandwich, or to Carvel’s famed Flying Saucers, but these cool lickers may be the best ice cream vessel of all.
