Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream, p. 150
This is actually in the 'Frozen Desserts' section, which I didn't see a thread for... maybe because it's not technically a "baking" recipe. At any rate, I made this for mother-in-law for a Christmas present, and it was very good. I found the butterscotch making to be a little fussy, but it came together in the end and made for a very smooth, flavorful ice cream. I used local pecans, and they were excellent in this... so glad I saved them for this purpose.
P.S. I have not been keeping up with the BCTM this time around... I made a couple of recipes from "My Sweet Mexico" and a couple of additional ones, and I'm afraid they all kicked my butt... I managed to pick 4 very high maintenance recipes to do all in one day!!
