I have recently acquired an ice cream maker! The world of possibilities has greatly increased! I have wanted an ice cream maker for awhile, but I’ve put off getting one because it always seemed unnecessary. The ice cream maker is going to slowly change my life.
I’ll admit I’ve tried to make ice cream since this first batch and I had a bit of a baking fail, but this first recipe was delicious! The ice cream was creamy and sweet and tasted just like cookie dough. The cookie dough chunks throughout were icing on the cake. Cookie dough has always been one of my favorite ice cream flavors. It’s pretty cool that I can not make it at home myself!
The only tools my kitchen is really missing is fancy food processor and a cast iron casserole dish, but a girl can keep on dreaming, right? Someday I’ll have my perfect, fully stocked kitchen, but until then, I’ll add pieces bit by bit!
