I want an ice cream maker! I tried to make this ice cream by hand and froze it in a medium glass bowl. I took longer to freeze than it probably should have. I put this in the freezer at approximately 8:30 a.m. and beat it with a hand mixer every 30 minutes. By 11:30 I was ready for bed. When I woke up in the morning, my ice cream was solid but ice crystals were in there! It taste very good, but I will try this one again with an ice cream maker!
