      I love the taste of the ice cream. I used 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of half and half cream. Plus the 1 cup of whole milk. At the end, there is little bits of butter we can feel when eating it. But not too much. This is a recipe I would do again cause it has a great taste. Maybe to cook the base would be better. Thanks Annacia. Made for Beverage tag.

      I found this to taste more like a light vanilla than butter pecan. The only time the butter pecan flavor comes through is when you bite into a nut. This wouldn't be too bad except that the ice cream itself has a very grainy texture, which can be common in ice cream not made with a cooked base. I actually ended up with frozen fat bits on the spoon. I have a high quality gelato maker and this is the first time I've made ice cream that came out with this texture which I didn't care for at all.
