    I made this cream and got it good and cold in the refrigerator...then used it as a base for Amaretto Gelatto with my ice cream maker. It was soooo good! It was so easy to scoop out a beautiful scoop of ice cream even after it was in the freezer for several hours. The amaretto flavor was subtle and so tasty...served it with an oil-free vegan Apple Spice Cake ( recipe) for my husband’s birthday and it was GREAT!

    Tastes delicious. We found we could also do a riff of Rouxbe's vegan eggnog using this cream blended with nutmeg, dates, and xantham gum. The amaretto adds a subtle but lovely kick of booze.
