    This ice cream is great! My boyfriend bought me an ice cream maker for my birthday and this was one of the first ice creams I made. It tastes amazing. We had store bought ice cream in the fridge at the same time I made this recipe. Lets just say, the store bought ice cream is still in the freezer! If you want to make an ice cream that your friends and family will love, this is certainly it!

    Wasn't sure about this, but wanted to try anyway - I'm sure glad I did! This is very good, easy to mix up and makes a huge batch!
