"This was absolutely delicious! I only had half the cream I needed to make it, and it didn't turn out as smooth as would be expected as a result, but it was just perfect. No one else was a fan, but I plan on keeping this recipe and making a big batch to be frozen for myself!"

"This is delicious. This really does taste like fresh Rhubarb Pie. I like that you don't need an ice cream freezer, but it turns out just as good."
