TWD- Vanilla Ice Cream

Tuesday's with Dorie- it has been awhile. I haven't participated yet in July but I did make the Vanilla Ice Cream that Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu, chose for this week- last year.
And now that we are all settled in our house and I feel close to organized, I will be able to get back on track with baking and posting for TWD.
I made this ice cream last year when we made Dorie's Chocolate Chunkers for TWD, because Dorie suggested churning the cookies into her Cinnamon Ice Cream, which is a variation of her vanilla ice cream. And I had 6 egg yolks hanging out in the fridge, leftover from making a meringue of some type.
My sister loves all things cinnamon and I remember her really, really loving this cinnamon ice cream. In fact, everyone who ate it loved it. It was very, very good.
You can get the recipe from my post mentioned above or go to Lynne's blog and you will be able to find it.
Please check out the TWD Blogroll to see what other flavors and variations people made out of this week's recipe!
I also included a couple of pictures from my Perfect Party Cake back in June since I finally downloaded all my photos. That is a good cake.

Congrats on finishing with your move...there is nothing more gratifying than getting the home settled and organized. :)

I love ice cream sandwiches, so I've got to try churning the cookies into the ice cream...that sounds delicious!

I really love the idea of a cinnamon ice cream - it sounds heavenly! I'm glad you are starting to feel settled in your new home! (P.S. Life has just been crazy here the past weeks - I haven't forgotten to send your package, I'm just unintentionally slacking! Thanks for being patient! I will email you when I get it on its way soon. HUGS!)
