Ryan got me the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid Mixer for my birthday. Since we were having friends over last night and the weather has been so grand, I thought it would be a perfect night to try it out.
This recipe is a winner. If you are a homemade ice cream fan and also love Key Lime Pie, you will really enjoy it. I found it via Pinterest. (My link thing isn’t working so here is the address: http://www.goodlifeeats.com/2011/06/key-lime-pie-ice-cream-recipe-from-my-baking-addiction.html )
Clearly, it isn’t good for you……
