Peppermint Patty Ice Cream

I have a tradition of sharing a recipe from my books when each one comes out, and today, I am sharing a recipe from Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale, where some of the characters work at an ice cream shop.

We make homemade ice cream every summer on July 24th. This is my favorite recipe that we invented one day when my husband bought the wrong ingredients. We make it in a 4 quart electric ice cream freezer.

  1. So what ingredients was he supposed to buy? And when can I buy a book from you?

  2. I wanted to make peppermint ice cream with hard peppermints. He got peppermint patties instead. I have books at home now.

  3. I think I would prefer the peppermint patties anyway (chocolate)! I will stop by sometime to get a book. Maybe this afternoon if you are home.

    1. I'll be in and out. I can leave a book with the kids for you.
