"This elegant dessert is as beautiful as it is delicious," says Brenda Bodnar from Euclid, Ohio. "Not only is it ultra-easy to prepare, but it's a make-ahead recipe, so there's no last-minute fussing when company is coming."
As a child, I helped crank out gallons of homemade ice cream. And thanks to this recipe, I'm carrying on the tradition in my family. We're chocolate fans-so you can imagine the reaction when we spoon up this fudgy summer treat.
When peaches are in season, this recipe is at the top of my list to make. The pureed fruit lends a fresh flavor to the silky-smooth ice cream. You'll have to make it more than once, though, because the first batch never lasts long!
Whenever a friend or relative was ailing, my mother-in-law would bake some fresh custard and take it along when she visited. Because she brought folks this special treat so often, our family began calling it "get-well" custard!
