Last Fall, I made a new recipe from a gelato cookbook called Ciao Bella. There are a lot of really intriguing recipes in that book, but I was dying to try the Irish Cream gelato. Doesn't that sound wonderful?
I'm not sure if you need a special gelato maker when you generally make gelato - I just used my ice cream maker. But from my understanding, gelato usually has less air whipped into it versus ice cream and is more dense as a result. So perhaps there are special gelato churners out there, but I just couldn't wait that long. I wanted Bailey's gelato....pronto!
The gelato was very yummy, but I had the expectation that it would be a bit richer than it was. Maybe if I'd churned it with a proper gelato machine it would have been perfect. But, it was still yummy and DH and I gobbled it up. Maybe it just needed more booze? I'll try that next time!
