About

Have I mentioned how much I adore homemade ice cream? I don’t quite remember when this love affair began for me, but once you get used to the silky quality and the endless options for what you can make, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without an ice cream maker. (Don’t have one yet? Check out the amazon.com link on the right by scrolling down and you can link to my favorite type.) This ice cream is named for the childhood cookie memory of Snickerdoodle cookies – those simple sugar cookies that get a kick by being rolled in cinnamon sugar before baking. Here, the addition of cinnamon to a basic vanilla custard ice cream invokes the same flavor profile. (Tip: use a whisk to get the cinnamon to incorporate into the ice cream base.) Make this today and you’ll be ready for the 90 degree weather they are forecasting for Father’s Day tomorrow!
