Egg Nog Ice Cream

I'm generally not the biggest Egg Nog fan. I like it, but I can usually only stand a few sips before I realize it's just too much. I have to say, I don't feel that way about Egg Nog Ice Cream. I think it's because Egg Nog as a drink is too creamy, but how is it possible for ice cream to be too creamy? It's just not possible! Needless to say, I really did love how the Egg Nog Ice Cream came out.

I paired it with some of my cracked Macarons that did not quite make it to the holiday parties.
Egg Nog Ice CreamI even experimented with Macaron-Egg Nog Ice Cream sandwiches!

The almond flavor of the Macarons went nicely with the Egg Nog flavor! I think Macarons and Egg Nog Ice Cream might be repeats for years to come on the holidays...

Thanks for the recipe Linda!

Macarons are actually a whole different cookie from Macaroons, they just have similar names (which I think was done purposely to confuse us all, heehee).

The one I made is:

And I believe the one you are referring to is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_macaroon

Both good cookies! One based on almonds, one based on coconuts.. and you know I love me some coconut! So, I may give your macaroon recipe a shot sometime!

Thanks!
