Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + freezing

This is an ice cream I created when I remembered my Mother's Cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and how good it tasted. It has a creamy texture and a delight hint of orange.—Patricia Magner, Rathdrum, Idaho

  • 1/4 cup walnut halves
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small heavy skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add walnuts; cook and stir until toasted, about 4 minutes.
