Peaches and Cream Ice Cream

  Now for another ice cream dessert, As you can see, I have been having fun with my ice cream maker. This recipe calls for cream cheese and I wondered if it would taste somewhat like a cheese cake. It didn’t, just a nice texture and we thought it tasted more like a peach crumble. The brown sugar gives it more of a crisp or crumble flavor. 
  This needs to chill for 2 hours before making it, so leave yourself some time. If you want to dress it up, they are using crushed ice cream cones and almonds sprinkled on top which I didn’t do as I can not have the cones. 
  If you make your own ice cream, you can control what is in it and it will be a nice gluten free dessert.
