My ice cream won't set:( Whats wrong?

cups123 | Aug 12, 2010 06:04 PM

I just got the kitchen aid ice cream maker attachment and made ice cream for the first time tonight! But its not setting and I'm wondering why. I used the recipe in the booklet so I'm pretty sure its not the recipe. Its been in the freezer for like 3 hours - do I need to give it more time? Its slushy in texture? I felt like the ice cream maker attachment was cooling down as it was stirring and the mixture wasn't icecreamy at all when I put it in the container - more liquidy. Any ideas? When I put the mixture in the mixer it had been in the frig for an hour or two, it was cool (not freezing but cool). Should I just give it more time in the freezer?

I'm starting to loose hope about this attachment. I feel like maybe an ice cream maker that doesn't need a perfectly frozen bowl will work better - what have you all found?
