MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2012

I'm from New Orleans and my mother used to make this for us all the time and all of us loved it. I believed she used creole cream cheese but it's even hard to find creole cream cheese in New Orleans anymore. Philadelphia cream cheese is a good substitute.

I made this ice cream, spooned it into a graham cracker crust and then topped it with strawberry ice cream topping. It was great! I also made ice cream sandwiches using the leftover graham crackers and ice cream. Perfect summer desert!

This was my first attempt at home made ice cream. Excellent recipe and easy to follow. It didn't last long my family loved it.
