“Ice cream perfection in a word: Jeni’s.” –Washington Post

James Beard Award Winner: Best Baking and Dessert Book of 2011!

At last, addictive flavors, and a breakthrough method for making creamy, scoopable ice cream at home, from the proprietorof Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, whose artisanal scooperies in Ohio are nationally acclaimed.

Now, with her debut cookbook, Jeni Britton Bauer is on a mission to help foodies create perfect ice creams, yogurts, and sorbets—ones that are every bit as perfect as hers—in their own kitchens. Frustrated by icy and crumbly homemade ice cream, Bauer invested in a $50 ice cream maker and proceeded to test and retest recipes until she devised a formula to make creamy, sturdy, lickable ice cream at home. Filled with irresistible color photographs, this delightful cookbook contains 100 of Jeni’s jaw-droppingly delicious signature recipes—from her Goat Cheese with Roasted Cherries to her Queen City Cayenne to her Bourbon with Toasted Buttered Pecans. Fans of easy-to-prepare desserts with star quality will scoop this book up.

How cool is that?

I purchased this book last summer after becoming hooked on Jeni's ice cream thanks to a Food Network segment and placing a few orders of my own via the Internet. The recipes in the book are detailed, easy to execute, and turn out exactly like a pint of Jeni's from the store. This is my go-to ice cream book. Truly amazing! Highly recommended!

I bought 'Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home' for my daughter and her family. It is easily the best ice cream I've ever had. The variety and combinations are delicious and easy to make. Gourmet desserts every time. Great with home made Whoopie Pies!

I just made my first batch of ice cream from this book (roasted strawberry and buttermilk) and it is amazing! I have been making ice cream at home for a couple years and was always disappointed the texture isn't more like the kind you buy at the store. Jeni goes into detail about her research to find a great recipe to make at home - and she nailed it! The recipes are unique and the result is creamy, delicious, and scoopable. She also invites you to make your own flavor creations and gives you general guidelines to make sure they are a success. This was my first ice cream cookbook purchase, and I believe it will now be my last! Now I just need an excuse to travel to one of her ice cream stores...

I make ice cream all the time with my Cuisinart, using simple delicious recipes. The recipes in this book are complicated and contain ingredients I will never go out and purchase.

I gave this book as a gift to a friend who likes Jeni's ice cream. She LOVED the book and was so excited to look through it. The pictures, recipes and information about Jeni herself are all great.

I'm a lover of all things ice cream and this book is a great addition to my collection.

Oh man. I just tried my first batch from this book, and is it ever GOOD! Great flavor, and pretty much the best texture I've ever gotten out of my ice cream maker. My only complaint is the ridiculous number of dirty dishes sitting in my sink...If you want to make ice cream at home, I recommend this book!

I have had Jeni's ice cream and so was really excited to be able to purchase this book for my Nook HD+. Imagine my disappointment when the book would not appear in my library. The upside was a very helpful customer service rep discovered the issue and assisted in providing me with a credit for my purchase.
