TWD: Honey Peach Ice Cream

This is Bella and her mom Teresa. Their family has been visiting us this past week from Florida. Bella will be four in July and I don't think it's ever too early to learn how to make ice cream. I didn't have any trouble convincing her. Good thing this week's TWD recipe happened to be Honey Peach Ice Cream. There she is cooking the peaches and honey.

Then she pureed them. She looks quite the pro, doesn't she? She decided to take a break from making ice cream to play for awhile.

But she came back for a taste test and gave it her approval. We should have chilled the ice cream for a couple of hours in the fridge, or even overnight, but we couldn't wait! So we put it in an ice bath to chill it quickly. Consequently, our ice cream didn't freeze as well as it could have. After we tasted it we put it in the freezer. Here's our finished product:

It was delicious! And Bella is going to make a great baker and cook! I love that Dorie added honey to this recipe.

We have Tommi of Brown Interior to thank for choosing this week's recipe. Mosey on over to her blog and find out what she thought. You can also see the recipe. And if you want to read other opinions, you can visit 300 other bakers!

Bella is adorable! I sometimes enjoy ice cream most right after it's churned while it's still soft.

here is a little trick we use to do when i worked at casianos. scoop some balls on a jelly roll sheet lined with parchment. stick it in the freezer and for about 15 minutes (if you can wait that long) then just put them in a bowl and woof it down....lady like of course.

i'm glad to see you are having fun with your guest. miss ya.
