“Cheesecake, ice cream....two of my favorite things... hmm how can I have cheese cake AND ice cream? BINGO! This is a rich and creamy custard style ice cream. I love this recipe, it is a creation of my own (shall I say a permutation of some other recipes that I've tried) Begin making this one day in advance for best results.”
