*Easy Christmas Ice Cream Recipe*


 

Easy Christmas Ice Cream       

Here are some easy ways to dress up commercial ice cream. These may be used in several variations.
I remember my Mother doing this when I was a child. We didn't have all the flavored ice creams that
they have now so my Mom would take out a marble slab and go to work mixing different flavors into the vanilla ice cream. Here are a few that I found in her stack of recipes.


Plum Pudding Ice Cream

Blend 1 quart vanilla ice cream with 1/2 cup diced candied pineapple, 1/4 cup candied green cherries, 1/4 cup candied red cherries, 1/2 cup blanched almonds, 1/2 cup macaroon crumbs, and 2 tablespoons of brandy or sherry. Place in freezer until the ice cream hardens.

Serves 8

Easy Eggnog Ice Cream

Add either 1/4 cup sherry , 1/4 cup rum or 1/4 cup brandy to each quart of vanilla ice cream, mix, and freeze until hardened.

One quart serves 8

Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Crush 1/4 pound peppermint stick candy, mix with 1 quart vanilla ice cream, and freeze until hardened. If a more pronounced flavor of peppermint is desired, add a few drops of peppermint extract.

Nesselrode Ice Cream

Boil one pound chestnuts until tender, removing the shell and skins, and running the nut meats through a processor. Cool the puree and add it to 1 quart vanilla ice cream, 1 cup drained crushed pineapple,1 cup mixed candied fruit, and 1/4 cup brandy or sherry. Blend thoroughly. Place ice cream in a mold and freeze until hard.
