Banana-Butter-Pecan Ice Cream Recipe

I just thought I would share my new summer love: This Banana-Butter-Pecan homemade ice cream paired with peanut butter cookies with mini choco chips in them. Practically heaven on a plate.

Here is the recipe for the ice cream:
Banana-Butter-Pecan Ice Cream

1 cup of pecans
1 Tbs. butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
3 eggs yolks (slightly beaten)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
2 tsps vanilla
1 mashed banana

In a skillet saute the butter with the pecans until they are toasted on all sides. Set aside.
Mix sugar, salt and egg yolks. Pour on milk. Cook in a saucepan over medium heat until bubbles begin to form or mixture coats spoon (be careful not to scald). Remove from heat and cool for a half hour. Add cream, vanilla, banana and pecans. Pour into your ice cream mixer and freeze per directions. Makes a little over 1 quart.

I also just make my favorite Betty Crocker peanut butter cookies, but add mini chocolate chips to the dough before cooking them. They are amazing when paired with the ice cream. The brown sugar and the toasted pecans in the ice cream just make it sooooo incredibly good!!!!
