Cook?s Notes: Baked plantains are often available in Mexican or Latin American markets. Raw plantains can be substituted; just make sure they are completely cooked.

Cut plantains into 1/4-inch slices on an angle. Lightly saut? plantains with butter and brown sugar; do not allow to get too mushy.

Pipe whipped cream onto left side of ice cream, and garnish with mint. Sprinkle powdered sugar over entire plate. Serve with Cajeta-Rum Sauce
