You'll feel like an old time prospector when you dig into this mountain of ice cream. Golden bits of butter brickle will be your reward when you hit the mother lode.

This ice cream uses the Old Time Vanilla (see recipe) for a base mix. The butter brickle is folded into the ice cream after it is frozen. The butter brickle is prepared as follows. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet and then melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Then add 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon water and bring to a boil. Continue heating with constant stirring until the preparation reaches 300o. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. Spread on the cookie sheet and when cool break into small pieces. Fold this preparation into the ice cream when frozen.
