Behold, the easiest dessert you will ever make…Pumpkin Ice Cream topped with Williams Sonoma Spiced Pumpkin Seed Brittle. Ooooh…aaah…right!?
So here’s the deal, for our wedding I registered for this ice cream maker. Best decision ever. Do you have an ice cream maker? If not it should be on your Christmas-Hannukah-Birthday-However You Can Get It-List, because once you go homemade ice cream you don’t go back. And I really can’t stress how easy it is to use!!!
Truth be told I haven’t attempted making ice cream completely from scratch. I actually rely on ALL of the Williams Sonoma Ice Cream Starters (seriously their Vanilla is out of this world). Each Starter contains 2 packets then all you do is add heavy cream and half and half, whisk, pour, and start. Easy Breezy. Plus about half way through the process I often add a little of this and a little of that to each batch. For example during the holidays I add crushed candy cane to their Chocolate Starter to make Chocolate Peppermint (though this year they have a Chocolate Peppermint and Eggnog Starter). Fresh chopped strawberries to their Strawberry Starter…summer in a bowl. And so on.
So for this time of year it’s all about the pumpkin (as it should be). And I’m in love with their Pumpkin Ice Cream. It tastes creamy and rich with just enough pumpkin flavoring to matter, but not too much where it overpowers. Then I simply threw on a piece of their Pumpkin Seed Brittle and you’re good to go. Fall-Halloween-Thanksgiving in a bowl! Word to the wise…their seasonal starters are only here for the season (hence the word seasonal) so stock up. Better safe than sorry. xoxo
