Playing favorites

Here on my blog, I think what I favor is pretty obvious.  I try to keep a variety of recipes, using different ingredients and flavors, borrowing from different cultures, etc.  But sometimes you just can’t fight what you love.

My key lime pie is a long time favorite among family and friends.  My key lime cupcakes are the most popular item on this blog, so I guess they’re a huge favorite among all of you 🙂  So, what would be better than incorporating this deliciousness into a summer favorite?  Not much.

LOVING this.

Key Lime Pie Ice Cream
adapted from My Baking Addiction

1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice (I use Nellie & Joe’s)
pinch of salt
10 graham crackers, crushed

Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.  Pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers’ instructions.  Transfer to a freezer container, stir in graham crackers crumbs and freeze for at least an hour.

Top with graham crackers (and/or crumbs) before serving.
