maybe 4 1/2....I have been drooling over this for quite awhile now. i did something wrong or something didn't work right....the cream crystallized & didn't mix well so there were crunchy gobs in the ice cream. ?? BUT the flavor was over the top. dh was funny...he didn't know i had altered the vanilla ice cream & thought there was something wrong with it, lol. I used a potato masher to incorporate the frozen cream bits into the softened ice cream. It was regular heavy/whipping cream. Should I beat it a bit until it is thicker? This is a nice & easy way to create an exotic dessert! Made for Visiting Persia in the NA/ME Forum 6/12.
