Eggnog Ice Cream

Eggnog Ice Cream

I know that Christmas is way in the past by now, but this year I have been feeling a big let down now that all the fun festivities are behind us. I LOVE Christmas and all the wonderful traditions that go with the holiday. I especially love seeing my girls react and soak up all the fun and joy that comes this time of year. I can’t believe just how fast the whole season flew this year! Also, we live in Southern California and it has been 80 degrees or so everyday since right before Christmas day. The day just didn’t feel right with such warm temperatures outside. It has been nice to have the warm weather since that though, we have been able to enjoy lots of parks and the beach.

Well, since I have been missing Christmas and it has been so warm here, I decided to whip up another quick batch of eggnog ice cream. I first made this ice cream last year and it was a huge hit and quickly became a family favorite. I searched around the web last year looking for the perfect recipe and never did find exactly what I was looking for. I ended up taking a standard Philadelphia style vanilla ice cream recipe and pretty much swapping out the heavy cream with eggnog. I tweaked the sugar and spices a little and ended up with exactly what I was looking for in an eggnog ice cream. This recipe is SUPER easy and amazingly delicious. If you have left over eggnog and are missing Christmas then this is the dessert for you.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a beautiful and Happy New Year in 2012!!!
