It is hard to believe that it takes longer to do the washing up than it does to make this fabulous frozen treat. Spiced by the warmth of freshly grated nutmeg and spiked by the mellowness of brandy, this is, indeed, the ultimate autumn pleasure.
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
3 tbs. brandy
Combine the pumpkin and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl and stir to mix.
Whisk the cream into soft peaks, then whisk in the pumpkin mixture until thick again. Grate in the nutmeg and whisk in the brandy.
Pour into an airtight freezer container and freeze overnight. Take out of the freeze 5 minutes before serving to soften.
