Butter Pecan Ice Cream with Blackberry Swirl

Sometimes you should let the professionals do the heavy lifting. Take ice cream, for example. Start with a basic flavor, then make it your own by stirring in jam, toasted nuts, hot fudge or caramel sauce, sprinkles, crumbled cookies…or whatever else you like! (That’s our butter pecan–blackberry jam combo above.) This recipe is so easy, the kids can make it!
