Of course, cones are optional! I had wonderful peaches and followed the recipe exactly.  In retrospect, I'd definitely use less sugar (1/3 cup) and use 3 egg yolks instead of the 6 oz. cream cheese.  It produced a kind of peach cheescake flavor, which is okay--not bad--but doesn't have the light fresh peach flavor I'd hoped for.  Might also use a bit more lemon juice to brighten things further.  Very soft coming out of the ice cream maker, so leave enough time for it to ripen in the freezer, maybe a whole day.
