National Ice Cream Month is still rolling along, and I’m totally overwhelmed with all the potential flavor options I could share. I decided to try this butterscotch pecan because it’s certainly not a typical flavor for me. If you’ve been reading this blog long, you may remember that I used to declare hatred of almost all types of nuts. Then one Thanksgiving I discovered pecan pie and slowly began to warm up to them (well, at least some of them). I have been hearing good things about this particular recipe so I thought I would give it a try. I figured even if I wasn’t crazy about it, Ben would surely love it and there would be lots of interested readers.
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that when I was younger, I would resort to eating butter pecan ice cream when there was no other sort of ice cream around and pick out all the nuts which left me with basically just vanilla ice cream. Once I got around to actually making this recipe, I realized this was a whole different ballgame. Butterscotch pecan ice cream – as in butterscotch, my dear sweet love. Well, hello, we have a winner. So rich, creamy and well, buttery! I even enjoyed the pecans. My biggest mistake? Only making a half batch.
