A must-try ice cream recipe that combines creamy dairy with pecans that have been roasted in butter. Not the most nutritious dessert – but really good!
How to make butter pecan ice cream
This ice cream was really easy to make. Smother the pecans with melted butter then toast them in the oven until they’re a shade darker. These nuts will soak up the butter and the mouth-feel of the nuts will become irresistible. The perfect add-in for ice cream.
Once you’re finished with the pecans, transfer them to the fridge for at least half an hour to cool down. If the nuts are warm it will result in an ice cream that’s icy.
Finally, you’ll whisk up your milk, cream, vanilla and sugar until thoroughly combined then add to the ice cream maker. There’s no need to heat the ingredients as we won’t be using eggs.
