Library Journal

The most fabulous ice cream ever. Now the most fabulous book ever. Thanks to Molly Moon, DIY ice cream has never been so yummy.
425 Magazine

Local ice cream maven Molly Moon Neitzel and pastry chef Christina Spittler take a typically summertime treat into winter, spring and fall with this invitingly illustrated guide revealing secrets from Moon’s famous sweet shop. From honey lavender to maple bacon and the always appropriate chocolate and vanilla varieties, the book offers recipes fit for the most discerning cones, plus a few tips on ice cream cakes, sandwiches and shakes.
Seattle Magazine

If ice cream had a fan club, I'd probably be the president. That's why books about ice cream make me salivate like a dog at a bone store. Seattle-based Molly Moon just launched a new drool-worthy book, Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream. And, I love how the book is organized by seasons—like Mexican Chocolate ice cream and Blood Orange sort for winter, Blueberry Frozen Yogurt for spring, and Pumpkin Clove ice cream for fall. No matter the season, the book encourages using fresh, local ingredients and experimenting with really fun flavor combinations. Don't these photos make you want to dive right in?
Oh Joy! 

Nietzel’s book captures the stores’ fresh, shop-around-the-corner aesthetic and their focus on simple recipes that showcase quality ingredients. ...The images speak to an underlying commitment to sustainability, to buying local and organic. But at the heart is just good ice cream. The recipes are organized by season. Strawberry-rhubarb and baby-beet sorbets trumpet spring, while in winter, Mexican hot chocolate ice cream or mulled-wine sorbet sound as comforting as a cozy fireside. The flavors sing. In part, that’s because the ice cream is Philadelphia-style, made without the egg yolks that add richness but can also mask subtler flavors. For the home cook, Philadelphia-style also means fewer steps – no stirring a custard base over the stove. The recipes are clear and accessible, most featuring only four or five ingredients. The results are simple and pure. ...this book will make you see ice cream differently.
Los Altos Town Crier

Neitzel (who worked a college job making ice cream in Montana) also shares some of her favorite places to source ingredients, advice on ice cream success at home, and some of her business philosophy.

I love that this book has seasonal ice creams since Seattle doesn't always have a lot of hot weather, and because my family is an ice cream year-round kind of family. My kids said the salted caramel ice cream was the best ice cream they'd ever had, and they're pretty experienced with ice cream. The lavender ice cream is amazing and the Mexican chocolate was also delicious. I can't wait to try every flavor, even the salted licorice!

There's very little cooking involved in these- even the salted caramel was relatively easy to make. I appreciate the many topping recipes, many of which I could see enjoying even without ice cream- compotes, brittle, etc.(if necessary :)

*I'm updating this to add that the frozen goat yogurt with blueberry compote is the most delicious frozen yogurt ever ever! The goat yogurt from Trader Joe's is perfect in this recipe. SO good!

We've made ice cream at home since we were kids and had to turn the crank handle at Grandma's house. We now have a home gelato maker with built in compressor but still love fresh ice cream and/or gelato every bit as much.

Our preferance is for recipes without egg since they don't seem to help with flavor but add either a cooking step or (slight) salmonilla risk. All the recipes in Molly Moon's book are egg free. Egg does act as an emulsifier and helps prevent the ice cream from freezing rock hard but one tablespoon of your favorite spirits or vanilla extract in an ethanol base helps with that also.

As noted in previous reviews, the Salted Carmel recipe makes this book worth the purchase. Also are such recipes as Thai Tea Ice Cream, Pumpkin Clove Ice Cream and Cappuccino Ice Cream. Topping Recipes include Spiked Whip Cream, Vanilla Bean Caramel and Deep Dark Hot Fudge.

If you already own the other classics like Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream book, this is a must have for any ice cream lover.

It's hard to describe how elated I am with this cookbook without using some illustrative obscenity. It's amazing. Molly has the best ice cream in the world, and this cookbook + a $60 ice cream maker allowed me to recreate it with almost frightening accuracy--it tastes exactly like it does in the shop, and golly sakes am I proud of myself and happy about it.

Also, the book is beautiful inside and out, charmingly laid out by season, with clear and helpful instructions, and the recipes are simple and unfussy (and consequently delicious).

Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream is a hit with my family. The recipes are easy to follow and the texture of the ice cream is oh so creamy. You'll wait with a spoon anxious to sample this delicious treat. The descriptions of each ice cream are interesting, creatively written and will entice you to try new flavors. I enjoyed reading Molly's Homemade Ice Cream Recipes and look forward to making many new flavors.

I purchased this book last summer along with a few others (perfect scoop, Jeni's). So far, I have tried three different ice creams from Molly Moon's. First up was Cherry Chocolate Chunk ice cream. Out of the 15 or so home made Ice creams from the various books I have made, this probably got demolished the fastest. And its just my husband and I- I think it was gone in two days. Next up was carrot cake - also excellent. It's pretty rich, but my husband claims its his favorite out of all I've made. And just today i made the scout mint ice cream. it is still setting up, but i did have a few tastes. I think the amount of peppermint extract is too much. I'm hoping it mellows while setting up.

All of these were pretty simple to make. In fact directions for most everything in the book seems pretty simple. I cannot see any glaring errors in regards to measurements, etc.. This book does have a mix of recipes from what most people would consider standard (strawberry, vanilla) to more exotic creations (baby beet, tomato basil). I do like having some of these more interesting flavors. While I may not try all of them, its likely I'll try a few as they are so unusual and maybe I'll find a new really good flavor. Also to note, these are not egg based ice creams if that makes a difference to you (at least i don't see any that are).

I do like how the book is organized, into seasons. Not that I'll only make something if its listed in the season it is, but because some of the flavors use fresh seasonal ingredients. So the cherry chunk was made in summer when cherries were in season here. Along with recipes you get some nice pictures, some back story, and a few other tidbits here and there.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with this book.

I always need egg-free ice cream recipes b/c my 5 yr old granddaughter is allergic to dairy, peanuts, and eggs. It is so much simpler to make this kind of ice cream regardless, no hot stove to be laboring over cooking egg custards in the heat of summer. Faster too. These easy recipes are, for me, a Godsend. There are even tips on subbing in non-dairy, which I also need to do at times. Included are toppings, sauces, and even 'pepita' brittle which I made for us and again with allergy-safe sunflower seeds for my g'daughter. Although I am not adventurous enough to jump out of a plane and skydive or go bungee jumping, I am willing to try unusual foods and flavors at least once b/4 deciding I don't like it. I tried the Baby Beet Sorbet and it is good but mostly "interesting" :). The texture was perfect. I don't love it, but others might. I had a family taste-test b/4 telling them what it was so they could guess; I got every answer except beets. I hate wasting food, so this recipe helped me use up that lone beet sitting in my fridge while exploring a new ice cream flavor. It's also a great way to get good nutrition into little ones, they won't be the wiser; so if you have a child that is not a good eater as so many aren't, here's your chance to give them their veggies in a dessert.

There are many pics to go with the recipes. Tagged to try are sev'l sorbets: Raspberry mint, lemon, kiwi, watermelon, spiced cider, blood orange, pear, peach, etc.. You can easily alter one of these recipes with other fruits, as I intend to do with mangos. I am hoping to try the Salted Caramel Ice Cream next.
