This is the basic Creme Glacee with added ingredients. I made this recipe up for a dinner party, and changed it mid stream. My grown son told me it had to be green, so instead of using peppermint extract, I used 3 ounces of Creme de Menthe. It did not freeze hard in the ice cream maker, but we wanted to try it, and the softness did not bother any of us. We all had seconds, some had thirds, and the small amount that was left, I put in the freezer. I suspect it will not last through tomorrow. It was excellent. The next time I make it, I will allow several hours for freezer time. This is not a fast recipe. Well! I have let enough time slip by to get to know my recipe better. The Creme de Menthe is what I now use each time. The ice cream gets hard enough to be nice, but never so hard I can't "dip" it. I had two bowls tonight!... I have to stop making this!
