The Best Ice Cream Maker Cookbook Ever

Choice is what it’s all about: Choosing your favorite flavor, favorite topping or swirl-in, favorite frozen dessert. For no matter what kind of ice cream maker you own — an inexpensive canister or a top-of-the-line electric freezer — there’s an extra special treat here for you.

Exciting flavors include an assortment of vanillas of varying degrees of richness, several great chocolates, Butter Pecan, Sensational Strawberry, Peaches ‘n’ Cream, Utterly Peanut Butter and Double Ginger to mention only a sampling. For an extra flourish, there’s a collection of ice creams with add-ons — swirls and twirls, sauces and toppings. There is even an entire chapter of great reduced-fat light ice creams and nonfat frozen yogurts with names like Creamy Banana, Cappuccino, Date Rum and Maple Crunch.

Many completely fat-free frozen delights are covered in the chapter called “Sorbets, Granitas and Other Ices.” Enticing and refreshing, they come in flavors such as Kiwi-Lime, Mango Margarita, Spiced Rasberry and Strawberry Daquiri. And for showstopping, truly fabulous desserts, made completely in advance, turn to the last chapter, which contains ice cream cakes, pies and other frozen desserts.

IF you’re using an ice cream maker with a built in compressor, like the one pictured, you’d want to pre-chill the bowl first. The idea is to minimize the transition time between liquid state and solid (frozen) state of the ice cream. The faster the ice cream freezes, the creamier it will be. This is another reason to age the mixture in the fridge, at least 6 hours, if not overnight – you’d want the mix right at the transition point, and the ice cream maker as cold as possible.

If you’re using the type that the bowl needs to be pre-frozen, then this isn’t a concern.

Don’t have an ice cream maker? Well, there’s always the old middle school science method of 2 coffee cans and some rock salt:

I recommend sealing the inner can with duct tape ':-)'
