Homemade Ice Cream

During the dog days of summer ice cream is the go to treat to help cool yourself down. I love ice cream..I always have. As a little girl when I heard Mr. Softee trucks passing I ran down four flights of steps with my dollar in hand to buy the creamy cold treat. And today I go around the city searching for that perfect scoop, my current favorites beings the readily available Haagen Daaz and Baci Gelato. This summer though I have been trying to make everything I eat at home and since I received a free ice cream maker when I purchased my Kitchenaid I decided to try my hand at ice cream making. I scoured the Internet looking for a highly rated recipe. My first try went to Alton Browns recipe available at It was good but still I was in search of something more creamy and delectable. One day while perusing through recipes at baking 911 I happen upon a egg less gluten free recipe for ice cream. It got good reviews so I decided to give it a try.  My first attempt I decided to double it and it came out horrible. My second attempt was a heavenly concoction that tasted like a dense, sweet, cold cloud on my tongue...this was a keeper! I did make a few changes to the recipe because of lack of ingredients but it made no difference. My family loved it and so did my friends that came over to get a try. I definitely recommend this recipe.
