"The directions were a little hard to follow, but the ice cream turned out great!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2012

"We had a problem with the egg and the flour. Maybe you're supposed to whisk the hot mixture into the flour? And take the hot mixture off the stove before adding the egg?"

"My husband and I had never made ice cream before, but this was really easy and quite tasty! Next time, we're thinking about using half and half instead of milk for the final filler."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2009

"The recipe ingredients say "1 eggs" which makes me wonder if there's an error. Is it one egg, or supposed to be more than one?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 15, 2009

"Yum! I used this recipe with cream instead of milk, and also added chopped mint chocolates. I enjoyed it both with and without the chocolates, and got rave reviews from friends. A definite keeper!"
