Pumpkin Ice Cream

Trouble eating his first Pumpkin Ice Cream
When trouble was about 3 years old we went to a pumpkin patch out in the country. They had hay rides, scarecrows, face-painting and best of all pumpkin ice cream. We were smitten and every year right before Halloween I make a batch of yummy pumpkin ice cream. It puts us in a festive fall mood... even if it is 90 degrees outside.
What you need:
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
What you do:
Beat eggs for two minutes.

Add sugar to eggs and beat for an additional minute.

Slowly add cream, milk and vanilla to mixture.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions.

Add cinnamon and nutmeg to pumpkin and mix well. Set mixture in freezer until needed. (Place nuts in the freezer too.)

After the ice cream stiffens, add the pumpkin & nuts. Let it mix in the ice cream maker for a few minutes.

Put all this yummy goodness in a freezer safe container.
Ice cream is happiness condensed.
Happy Fall Y'all!
