Recently I have been looking into making ice cream without a machine.  I know most people do not have an ice cream maker at home, but would still love to be able to make their own from scratch.  After doing some research, I discovered this absolutely delectable recipe from one of my favorite sites, Bits of Sunshine.  Heidi’s desserts taste just as delicious as they look and her chocmint ice cream is one of my favorites.  I will definitely be making this often along with her other sweet treats!  Thank you Heidi!!!

I am not a huge fan of using bananas in desserts, but these Banana Fudge Swirl and Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are incredible!  Since fresh bananas are used, the flavor is natural and subtle.  And the fudge swirl adds a sweet richness that pairs so well with the light flavor of the ice cream.  And when sandwiched between two soft peanut butter cookies, this ice cream is taken to another level of deliciousness.  Banana, peanut butter, and chocolate?  This sandwich has it all!

Sweet and refreshing, basil ice cream is an impressive and unexpected dessert that is so simple to make.  I used more cream than I typically use in my recipes because some of the cream will evaporate when it is simmering with the basil on the stove.

Ginger Ice Cream Sandwiches with Molasses Cookies are my new favorite dessert.  These are seriously addicting.  I have always loved molasses cookies and have never tried making my own until now.  These ones are perfect if you enjoy a soft, chewy molasses cookie that stays soft and chewy.  And this consistency makes them the perfect cookie for an ice cream sandwich.  The ginger ice cream is creamy, sweet and spicy and is incredible sandwiched between these delectable molasses cookies.

My mom’s favorite ice cream is butter pecan so I decided to make maple butter pecan ice cream for mother’s day.  After roasting the pecans in the oven, the butter soaks into them to create that distinct, rich butter pecan flavor.  They are slightly salty and are a perfect contrast to the sweet maple syrup in the ice cream.
