Baileys Ice Cream – Without a Machine

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner I thought I should make something ‘Irish’ to celebrate. This recipe is made with Baileys Irish Cream liqueur. That counts, right?

I’ve always wanted to make my own ice cream. But, with storage space at a premium (this is Vancouver), I’ve never owned an ice cream machine.

Long ago I decided this was a good thing, at least in terms of keeping my waistline in check. But then I discovered this no-machine ice cream recipe and I just had to try it out.

To hell with my plan to lose those last few baby pounds by the summer.

The above link lists two awesome recipes for peanut butter and chocolate and cookies and cream ice cream, which I’ll have to try out someday soon. For St. Paddy’s Day I decided to make one of my favorite ice cream flavors: Baileys Irish Cream.
