I COMBINED two recipes - one for vanilla ice cream and the other for a special coffee sauce - to create this one. I serve it plain, just scooped into a dessert dish, so the mild, creamy coffee flavor can be enjoyed to the fullest. -Theresa Hansen, Pensacola, Florida

"You don't do the cream step?  I am using my ice cream maker for the first time so I am new at this!  Any help would be appreciated!"

"This is a great recipe. It is so creamy and you don't need to make it like traditional creamy ice cream. No need for eggs or lots of time spent on preparation. I just omit the last step and put it in my ice cream maker."
