Happy Fourth of July! I would just like to say I appreciate all of the freedoms we enjoy due to the sacrifices of many others before us and those who serve our country today. Here I have the perfect summer time treat, lime ice cream bars. Like most kids, mine are crazy for Popsicles and so I ordered some Popsicle molds and have been making frozen treats every day. These are my favorite so far. I had never had lime ice cream but I saw My Baking Addiction was serving up Key Lime Pie Ice Cream and I knew it would be good. I based my version on my lime pie, changing out eggs for heavy whipping cream. It has been hot and this was the ideal way to cool off, they were so refreshing. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with friends, family and good food.
P.S. A big thanks to Amber at Bluebonnets & Brownies for sending me a new header! I will be making a few changes to the site, please bear with me!
