This recipe made me never want to buy store-bought ice cream again. I actually skipped the cooking step and used an electric mixer to blend the dry milk and other ingredients until dissolved. It worked out great. YUMMY! Read More

My whole family loves peanut butter and I was quite excited to try this recipe. Unfortunately it is not very good. Weird texture and after taste (I think that is from the non fat dry milk powder.) Anyone have a better recipe? Read More

This was wonderful and creamy! For those who have texture or issues with freezing try combining whipping cream and whole milk (D) rather than powder. This will give you the texture taste and freeze you desire. Read More

This is one awesome recipe for people who love peanut butter! Or peanut ice cream. Very good with chocolate truffle topping. The only reason I give it four stars is because I made one major change and that is I used whipping cream instead of milk. This made the mixture come out nice and extra creamy before I even put it into the ice cream maker. I followed the recipe directions exactly as is otherwise. At first I thought the ice cream wasn't coming together (like other reviewers stated) but it came together pretty well like a soft serve. After sitting in the freezer for a couple hours it hardened nicely. Just the way I like my ice cream solid and creamy. Read More

This was my first time making ice cream. I scaled it down to 4 servings because my ice cream maker is small (it could have held 6 servings but I was playing it safe) and it turned out great. Everyone who ate it loved it. Read More

Absolutely DELICIOUS! Like a couple of the reviews the ice cream didn't completely freeze in my maker but after storing it in the freezer overnight it was the creamiest and best ice cream I've ever made. My husband is a huge peanut butter fan and he loved it! I'm sharing this recipe with friends. Read More
