A nice light dessert or accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner. I like using Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream as it has a richer, custard taste (and it's my favorite vanilla ice cream!). VARIATIONS: 1) Stir in 1 T. finely grated orange zest 2) Add 2 T. minced candied ginger 3) Add 1 T. cranberry vodka, such as Finlandia, or orange liqueur.
