This is the best ice cream we have ever found. It really tastes like frozen cheesecake. I like to make it in the morning and let it ripen in time for supper, but my husband usually can't wait that long!—Jacki Prettyman, Fort Scott, Kansas
This recipe started out as a plain bread pudding. My husband, Tom, suggested adding some pecans, then I decided to add the pie filling. These ingredients make the pudding crunchy, moist and even more delicious.
Your special valentine will think you bought this gorgeous confection at a bakery! Kathy Zielicke of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin says, "This recipe may look difficult, but it really isn't, considering that you start with premade pie crust. I'm a hairdresser with an at-home salon...and I enjoy trying out my dessert creations on customers."
When I was living with my mother, she loved custard,, so I'd make this comforting dessert each week. Without leftovers, there's no chance of getting tired of this treat!—Billie Bohannan, Imperial, California
My husband and I have enjoyed this simple dessert many times, especially after a Tex-Mex meal. In fact, I've made it so often I don't even look at the recipe. See if it doesn't become a regular favorite at your house.
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.
