Oh my ! I was totally taken in by this recipe. You had me at the story about the childhood favorite, Vanilla Drumstick Ice Cream Cone.
When I was a child, the ice cream man would drive up and down our street all summer long ringing that ever so famous bell, and we would immediately get money from our mother and wait, and wait, and wait for him to stop in front of our house. He was usually several blocks away. The selection was incredible, but the only ice cream I ever got was the Vanilla Drumstick.
I am definitely adding this recipe to my Best of the Best recipes.
Peace in the Kitchen!
