Maple Ice Cream with Walnuts & Raisins

 

Our ice cream maker is going to ruin me. It’s a good thing I’ve been doing so much running or I would have gained 5 pounds just looking at this recipe. So sweet, creamy and buttery, Jon’s Maple Ice Cream kicks serious butt. The subtle hint of roasted walnuts and the chewy texture of the raisins take it over the top. Before serving, we sprinkled each bowl of ice cream with cinnamon. Absolute perfection!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup half & half
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Preparation:

Combine the heavy cream, half & half and syrup in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place cream mixture into ice cream maker and follow the instructions for your machine.

In the meantime, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast walnuts in a pie pan for approximately 8 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

Five minutes before ice cream is done mixing, add walnuts and raisins.
