      This was heavenly. I had to half the ice cream base as I have a small ice cream maker. I did leave the pecan topping measurements the same. I had to sub walnuts as I had no pecans. We ate 1/2 the topping before the ice cream was even ready - absolutely to die for!!! Can't wait to try with Pecans ;)

      Mmmmmmm!!! DH & I can't stay out of this one. I used finely chopped pecans and doubled the amount for candying them. I'll use half later in a granola recipe. The rest of the recipe I actually cut in half, and it worked perfect in my 1.5 qt freezer. Essentially, I have double the pecans. I do wish it had a creamier texture, but the taste can't be beat. I think I might try using all whipping cream next time instead of half-and-half. Overall, this is excellent and we will definitely be making it again!

      I could not believe the flavor of this recipe. It was not too sweet or rich ~ it was perfect and absolutely delicious! I added 1/2 extra pecans also, because I just loved the flavor of the buttery, crunchy pecans with the creamy ice cream. This is definitely a permanent recipe for my box! This recipe did not fill my ice cream container so I suggest doubling it. It is so yummy, you'll be glad you have lot's extra!
