Daily Dinner Table

Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.

Cawfee Hon Ice Cream

Growing up in New Jersey,  whenever we’d go to a coffee shop or diner, the server would ask what sounded like, ” ya want cawfee hon”? Some of us still sound this way, even after having lived in Texas for a gazillion years, Right Maddie? (my sister… we still have cawfee together via face time many a Sunday morning) You just HAVE to say Hon after the word coffee. Sorry, you just DO. It’s ingrained.

I’ve posted about my amazingly wonderful ice cream maker before, ( a DeLonghi with built in refrigeration) and it’s getting to be ice cream season again. I made some last night, and ummmmm ummmm. It really hit the spot.

Follow your ice cream maker directions, but here’s what I used to make 6-8 small ( a little more than a scoop) portions.

1 cup heavy cream

2/3 c of skim milk

about 1 1/2 T instant coffee if you like a stronger coffee flavor, add a little more. This amount is fairly strong.

1/2-2/3 c sugar, depending on the sweetness level you like. I don’t like really sweet, so I tend to go more towards the 1/2 c, maybe a tad more.

1/2 c or so chocolate chips are optional- add this after the ice cream has thickened a bit.

Mix all ingredients except for optional chips. Follow your ice cream makers directions. Add chips when ice cream thickens if desired.
