    Absolutely wonderful! Will definitely make again. I scooped out a little of the plain peach ice cream before I added the pecans because my son is not a nut-lover and it was good just as plain peach ice cream as well. I did not have whole milk so I used 2% and it tasted just fine.

    Absolutely delicious and easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to be ready to eat!! Looking forward to trying the chocolate,almond & vanilla bean. Would like to see the calorie content and also in a future issue the low fat versions.

    This is the best ice cream recipe I've ever made.

    This is the very best ice cream ever. The sweet and salty combination is the best. The super creamy texture and nutty flavor are better than anything else I've ever tried. I've been anxiously awaiting peach season since making this last summer!

    This is my first Summer of owning an ice cream machine so I've been experimenting, mostly to lower the fat/sugar content. This recipe had less cream than most, so I didn't change that. However, I have been finding that many recipes are way to sweet. For any recipes which use 3/4 to 1 cup of sugar, I instead use 1/4 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of Splenda. I left the pecans out since I wanted a total peach flavor. I eliminated the cooked peach/corn syrup cooking aspect, instead, opting to just add my chopped peaches at the freezer container step. I also omitted the vanilla bean paste, and added 1/4 cup peach schnapps for added flavor instead. Both my husband who really isn't crazy about peaches, and I LOVED this ice cream!

    The pecans make it.

    I made triple the recipe. I have to concur with Angelyn the sweet and salty combination made this the best ice cream I have ever had. I would have given it a 4.5 rating only because I think it was a little to sweet. Next time I will use some of the sugar to cook the peaches, leaving the corn syrup out of the recipe altogher. Also 30 minutes of freeze time I stired the ice cream to make sure all of the ingredients were equally distributed, glad I did.

    Made this for a 4th of July BBQ. Tripled the recipe and it didn't turn out as I hoped. The peaches crystallized, which gave it an odd consistency. This could have been because I chopped the peaches too small in an effort to have more peach flavor throughout. The small peaches were harder to drain, so perhaps that's why it crystallized when it was frozen. I'll probably look for a different recipe instead of trying this again.

    This is a nice recipe. I think next time I would leave out the pecans and add more peaches. It is a delicate flavor before adding the pecans, and the nuts overwhelm the flavor.

    Made this for BBQ celebration on July 4th. It was an absolute hit. I tripled the recipe for everything except the sugar. I cut the sugar by 1/4 cup. I will certainly make this again!!!

    My wife & I made this recipe, explicitly following the directions. It was the BEST ice cream that we have ever tasted! I'm absolutely crazy for Butter Pecan ice cream but I'm not that keen for peaches or most things with peach flavor. I'm so glad that we didn't pass on this recipe. We think that the balance of salted pecans and the peaches was superb. I read some of the other reviews that said that this was too sweet; we did not find it to be the case. Then again, I have a "sweet tooth" and I prefer that my ice cream be sweet -- isn't that why everybody eats ice cream??? We're having an old-fasioned ice cream social in a couple of weeks and will offer three kinds of ice cream; I will not be suprised if this is the "hit" of the evening.
