Directions

  1. Place pecans into a heavy saucepan over medium heat and toast the nuts, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over pecans and stir constantly until the sugar melts to a light brown syrup and coats the pecans. Immediately pull the pan off the heat; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
  3. Turn hot pecans out onto a piece of parchment paper and cool thoroughly; break apart any large clumps. Set candied pecans aside.
  4. Whisk 3/4 cup sugar, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, and maple flavoring in a large bowl until smooth. Slowly whisk in half-and-half.
  5. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Mix the candied pecans into the softly-frozen ice cream. Sprinkle servings with a pinch of coarsely ground sea salt.

This ice cream is awesome! The only difference was I used heavy whipping cream instead of half and half, and it was still awesome! So delicious! I definitely will be making this again real soon!

I thought it was good. Had a little bit of an after taste to it but not bad. I would make this one again.

This ice cream tastes like the very best butter pecan ice cream you can find. I sometimes replace part of the half and half with whipping cream, because it makes a richer and smoother ice cream. Otherwise, I follow the recipe.
