Pine Nuts No-Churn Ice Cream | Just Two Scoops

Homemade ice cream without ice cream maker flavoured with pine nuts was a sweet success trial. It happened when I wanted to use up the whipping cream carton and the last bit of condensed milk in the can. To be honest, the first time I heard about pine nuts was after coming to Yanbu. I think it came to light in my quest to know what was stuffed in my baklava.

I picked a pack of pine nuts without even doing the math (riyals in rupees). F forbids me from doing that...but we ex-pat ladies do quick mental calculation anyways right? Well, that was three years ago and I used them up in various middle eastern dishes like Fetteh, Egyptian Feteer Meshaltet, samosas, kabsa, etc. but never tried making baklava as I reserved that for the only reason we visit Saadeddin. 

I picked another pack of pine nuts with the hope to make Musakhan, a Palestinian chicken dish and this time I was fully aware that we were paying through the nose for a small pack of pine nuts so - it cannot be wasted or not used!

I love the very different aromatic taste that roasted pine nuts give out in both sweet and savoury dishes. As F had approved the pine nuts stuffing in Feteer, I wanted to try a similar thing with ice cream and I am glad I gave this a try as it was a super hit. 

This recipe of just two scoops of ice cream reminds me how far I have come in making the right amount of food for two that is not over-indulging.  If you see the recipe for my first no-churn ice cream using Blackberry in this blog, I had used one whole cup of whipping cream and we had all of it. Now I know how I gained all that bodyweight! :-d
