The first day of Summer is upon us and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than enjoying a bowl of delicious, creamy ice cream! This is one of my favorite desserts to make at home, and I was so excited to find the variety of cookbooks Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library has for you to borrow. Listed below are some of the fun cookbooks whose pages you can flip through and choose recipes to try out, or just have fun browsing the beautiful photographs and dream about making these yummy recipes!

I’ve checked out this book a couple different times, and the recipes are unique, fun, and look moderately easy. If nothing else, the pages are fun to look at!

This is probably tied as one of my favorite ice cream cookbooks with “Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones” (listed above!) because the instructions are easy to follow and it is one I’d like to own someday.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and I can only imagine it’s even better when made at home.
Don’t own an ice cream maker? No worries! You can still make delicious ice cream at home with a few basic ingredients and tools. If I could make this as a 9-year-old in girl scouts, I know you can too.
The Huffington Post blogged with 6 different ice cream making methods that will surely match your own needs.
