The other day I was in the mood for ice cream. Yeah, it was freezing outside, but I wanted ice cream anyway. So I decided to make these delicious pumpkin ice cream sandwiches. Except that I didn’t have any heavy cream. So I couldn’t make that (or pretty much any) ice cream recipe. As I sat drinking a cup of eggnog, I had a flash of brilliance.
