Does anyone have a recipe for marzipan ice cream?

    I made this once by steeping almond paste in milk/cream, then following a standard recipe for vanilla ice cream, with slightly decreased sugar. It worked well, but I would suggest a straining through a chinois or cheesecloth rather than just a strainer - some ground-almond grittiness came through. Not enough to ruin it, though.

      thanks raj1 -- i think i'm going with standard vanilla ice cream plus expensive store-bought marzipan. will definitely strain just in case.

      Try Bruce Weinstein's "Ultimate Ice Cream Book". He has a recipe for almond ice cream that uses almond paste. You might be able to use the same recipe substituting marzipan.

        I know this question was posed a long time ago, but I wanted to report that I recently made this recipe from Bruce Weinstein's book. I upped the amount of almond extract a bit, because I really wanted an almondy flavor, and added in additional chunks of marzipan at the end. It was really excellent. I'll definitely be making it again and again.
