Homemade Pistachio Amaretto Ice Cream.


So the warm weather has arrived, again, here in Pennsylvania.  80’s and quite balmy here as I sit and type this blog entry.  I’m so excited about this recipe.  I’m not a huge kitchen gadget fan and this is perfect!  No ice cream maker, rock salt or drama required!  No excuses… this is perfection and let’s face it, I haven’t led you astray yet!  :)


1 c of heavy cream (chilled)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
3 tbl of Amaretto
3/4 c of whole pistachios (shelled)
1 tsp of almond extract


In your stand mixer, whisk attached, whip the cold cream until stiff peaks form.  It will look just like whipped cream :)

In a separate bowl, add the sweetened condensed milk, Amaretto, pistachios and extract. Stir to combine and then fold into the whipped cream mixture.  Spoon into a tupperware container with a lid and freeze for at least 12-24 hours.
