My friend Brooke is awesome. Really, really, really awesome. You see, she and her daughter came all the way here, to Texas, to visit us. Really. On an airplane (actually two), here to Texas. That is why she is awesome. If anyone else would like to earn awesome status, you know what to do.
As a reward for Brooke's awesomeness, we had to have yummy treats and what is yummier than coffee ice cream? Especially coffee ice cream that you make yourself. And then eat it, with Thin Mints and whipped cream. Mmmmm!!!!!
If you like coffee ice cream, this ice cream is excellent. It had a strong coffee flavor (although that might have been because we allowed the beans to steep in the milk for longer than the recommended hour because we were putting the kids to bed). It was really delicious. We also at it with chocolate chip cookies and it was still good then. We made it with decaf beans, so we would not be up all night.
Here is the recipe, from David Lebovitz:
