      Very good soft ice cream that we enjoyed. I think this ice cream will be wonderful on top of apple crisp during the fall season. Thanks Hey Jude for posting.

      I got rave reviews from this recipe. I added a tsp of instant coffee granules to the warm cream mixture and crushed coffee-flavoured chocolate bars (Coffee Crisp) to right before the end of freezing cycle. Lovely!
