  • Cusine



2 egg yolks

1/3 cup sugar

3 cups half and half

1/3 cup crumbled halvah

1/8 cup chopped roasted unsalted pistachios

1/8 cup roasted unsalted almonds

1/8 cup chopped roasted unsalted cashews


In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks and sugar together until light in color and slightly thickened. Add half and half, whisking constantly, and transfer mixture into a heavy-bottomed pot. Stir in halvah and cook over a low flame stirring frequently, until base coats the back of a spoon but a finger swipe leaves a clean line. Chill ice cream base in the fridge overnight. Following the manufacturer's instructions, churn ice cream base in ice cream machine. When finished, empty into a mixing bowl, then quickly stir in pistachios, almonds, and cashews. Put the whole bowl in the freezer, and when it is frozen enough for you, dig in!.
