Peach Pecan Ice Cream

Confession.

Wes and I may have broken the rule about using your wedding presents before your wedding.

Although our friends told us we could technically call this an “engagement present.”  And if you are a believer in technicalities, which we are, then we should be in the clear.

I’ll let you decide.

Honestly though, this was the one present I put on my registry that I knew I would have a really hard time not using if we got it before the wedding.

Enter the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker Attachment.

Straight up trouble.

After a weekend spent in Houston, where Adam and Lauren showed us the magic of this attachment, we knew that we had to try it out.  I can’t resist homemade ice cream on a hot summer day.

In fact I think it would be just plain wrong to not try out this machine before the end of summer.

And now, after seeing what it can do, it’s not going to have much downtime.

The hardest part was trying to figure out what flavor to try out first. We didn’t want to do anything too crazy, so figured peach pecan might be a good way to start.

Was it ever! I’ve never had ice cream with this much peach flavor.

Well in all fairness I don’t think I’ve ever had peach ice cream. We sort of just defaulted to peach since I had five ripe peaches that absolutely needed to be used.

They were without a doubt put to good use. Logically, since it is peach, you can definitely enjoy this for breakfast.

However, if you were hoping to have a true dessert, I recommend the addition of chocolate.

It is a good decision.
