Cream Cheese Ice Cream

Who knew that when my kitchen is clean I can’t help but dirty it up immediately? LOL! Now I need to start making something more substantial than ice cream or sorbet. One can not live on dessert alone – though we can try.

I found the bones of this recipe online and added a few small changes to suit my tastes. I used almond extract instead of vanilla because my mom always made cheese cake with almond extract. I grew up with that flavor profile in my head. It’s how cheese cake should taste – at least to me. This ice cream is smooth and velvety and tastes exactly like frozen cheese cake. Top it off with cherries, strawberries or my favorite blackberries and you have a dessert you won’t want to share. *grin*
