My inspiration for this particular ice cream came from one I’ve had at Bruster’s a few times. They make a creamy vanilla ice cream that has whole maraschino cherries in it.
However there’s not that many cherries in it, at least for my liking, and I thought it could use a little something extra. That’s where the almond comes into play.
In my ice cream recipe, I added lots of extra cherries and a little almond extract. Let me tell you, it’s to die for!
