I Made Ice Cream!

So, arriving back home after a lovely honeymoon, I had to do something fun. It was so hard to come back! But, having a few wedding gifts to open when we got back made it just a bit easier. One of the wedding gifts, from a rather generous person, was an ice cream maker attachment to my Kitchen Aid Mixer! I have been wanting this for years! What better thing to do to (try to) celebrate being back home?  Well, make homemade ice cream of course!  So, in order to reluctantly celebrate our return home and happily celebrate the month of October, I made pumpkin ice cream

It was so neat to watch the ice cream begin to form in the mixer.

First it was very "liquidie." I was a bit concerned about that but...




 ...then it started to freeze up a bit.




At the end if the 15-20 minutes of mixing, it was completely frozen!




I scooped it into little bowls (of fiestaware which were a wedding gift too) and we ate it right up! 





It was sooooo good! I loved making ice cream and can't wait to do it again. My best friend's birthday is coming up soon so I think I may have to break out the ice cream maker and make a fancy ice cream for her birthday!

Any suggestions on what the flavor of birthday ice cream should be?  I am also very willing to accept any recipes! 



Cheers!

Yum! My friend has one and she's been known to make rum & raison, and butterscotch, but I don't have any recipes for you :(

That sounds delish! I love anything pumpkin this time of year! What about Rose ice cream? That's one of those specialty ice creams that you wouldn't think tastes good, but it so is!

Yum Craft Mummy and Rebecca, all of those choices sound fantastic! Thanks for the suggestions!

Hi Liz,

The pumpkin ice cream looks delicious.

I've had a recipe for over a year now for Snickerdoodle Ice Cream from The Noble Pig blog. I think it sounds fabulous, but I have never tried to make it.

Here is a link to the recipe, http://noblepig.com/2009/08/03/the-bandit-is-back.aspx Maybe you can give it a try!

Welcome Home!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!! I LOVE homemade icecream. I LOVE pumpkin flavor! I wish I were there. I bought an icecream maker at a garage sale once, came home and made icecream it was THE. BEST. CHOCOLATE. ICECREAM. EVER. But, unfortunately I haven't pulled out the maker since then. its good to have plans to use it again for a birthday! Good luck!

I did not know about the ice cream maker attachment. That is so cool and we always like to make homemade ice cream. Peppermint, or Chocolate Chip Mint are two favorites.

Well congratulations! Sounds like you are adjusting to married life and enjoying your new toys!
xoxo,

I love peppermint ice cream. Especially the peppermint ice cream that Blue Bell only puts out during the holidays. Ah, yum!

You all have had such great suggestions. I think I just may have to make all the ice cream flavors you suggested!
