This is wonderful! The taste is just perfect. I made it as posted and it does not make very much ~ about 2 cups or so. I will double or triple it in the future. I didn't chop the pecans ~ I just broke them up as I dropped them in since I like the pieces bigger. When I made the custard, it never bubbled around the edges for me and it actually boiled so I was concerned that I had messed it up but it worked perfectly. Thanks so much for posting a keeper!

Not at all sweet! Next time I will add twice the brown sugar and taste test it at every stage to be sure there is enough sweetness.

Yucky! Sorry, no one in my family liked this recipe. We all agreed that it was blah and not sweet enough like you would expect ice cream to be! If you like the taste of frozen whipped cream, a greasy taste all over your lips and mouth like shortening, then this is a must try! The only good thing I can say about this recipe is that it doesn't contain any raw eggs!

Rich, creamy and very tasty. What more could you ask for in an ice cream. I wanted to suprise my family tonight with a cool treat and this is what I picked. So good. I quadrupled the recipe so we had extra in freezer. I worked perfect. Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe with us.

Doubling this recipe will yield 1.75qts of made ice cream (perfect amount). I did however add an extra 1/4 cup of pecans. Extremely simple recipe. Doesn't get much better.

Fantastic! I used dark molasses brown sugar, it came out great. As Lvs2Cook stated, I needed to double the recipe to make a quart, but all in all, I was surprised at the subtle flavors released. Next time though, I think I will add the pecans to the bubble mixture to help release some more pecan flavor, strain it, then add them once again when the mixture hardens in the machine. Thanks for the post.
