Author Notes

I'm from Columbus, OH and love Jeni's. I have her book and modified her Goat Cheese and Roasted Cherry Ice Cream because there is a fig tree in the backyard, and I love brie and the two would go together in ice cream wonderfully. I also didn't have cream cheese, and only about 2 tbsn Naefchatel cheese so I increased the brie —ktsai.214

Wow! I was afraid of the brie becoming chunky once it froze, but everything creamed really well. I churned this morning and it's delicious!

I skipped the second cheese because I only had brie.
I'm curious, did you try making this with eggs, and without the corn-based ingredients? I wonder how the fats would have mixed or frozen differently.

Next time I'd like to try with honey instead.

I've tried a couple different base ice cream recipes, but using Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream recipes as a base always gives me the best outcomes. Jeni's also has a roasted pistachio honey ice cream!
