This recipe made me never want to buy store-bought ice cream again. I actually skipped the cooking step and used an electric mixer to blend the dry milk and other ingredients until dissolved. It worked out great. YUMMY!

My whole family loves peanut butter and I was quite excited to try this recipe. Unfortunately, it is not very good. Weird texture and after taste (I think that is from the non fat dry milk powder.) Anyone have a better recipe?

This was wonderful and creamy! For those who have texture or issues with freezing, try combining whipping cream and whole milk (D) rather than powder. This will give you the texture, taste, and freeze you desire.

I made a sugar-free version using SPLENDA and it was great!

This is one awesome recipe for people who love peanut butter! Or peanut ice cream. Very good with chocolate truffle topping. The only reason I give it four stars is because I made one major change and that is I used whipping cream instead of milk. This made the mixture come out nice and extra creamy before I even put it into the ice cream maker. I followed the recipe directions exactly as is otherwise. At first I thought the ice cream wasn't coming together (like other reviewers stated) but it came together pretty well, like a soft serve. After sitting in the freezer for a couple hours it hardened nicely. Just the way I like my ice cream, solid and creamy.

This is the way ice cream should taste!

This was my first time making ice cream. I scaled it down to 4 servings because my ice cream maker is small (it could have held 6 servings but I was playing it safe) and it turned out great. Everyone who ate it loved it.

Absolutely DELICIOUS! Like a couple of the reviews, the ice cream didn't completely freeze in my maker, but after storing it in the freezer overnight, it was the creamiest and best ice cream I've ever made. My husband is a huge peanut butter fan and he loved it! I'm sharing this recipe with friends.
