We All Scream For Ice Cream!

A few weeks ago I showed you how to make Coke Slushies with your Ice Cream Maker. Those were fun and fast, but sometimes the only thing to satisfy an ice cream craving on a hot summer day is good, old-fashioned ICE CREAM!

Here is my favorite Ice Cream recipe from Country Living:

Vanilla Ice Cream
Country Living Magazine

2 cups whole milk
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
Pinch of salt
2 cups half-and-half
2 cups whipping cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract

1. In a med. saucepan, whisk together milk, sugar, egg yolks, and salt. Whisk over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a simmer.

Lower heat to medium and whisk for 5 minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken.

Strain into a large bowl, then whisk in half-and-half, cream, and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours.

2. Pour mixture into ice-cream maker and process according to instructions.

**note** This recipe fills my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker 2 times. I make half one night and save the rest of the mixture in the fridge for another day that week.


  1. Sounds so delicious! I made lemon dilute last week with 6 lemons and a load of sugar! it was gorgeous though! :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. we do have an icecream machine, my favorite: add few lavender flowers in the milk while you're heating it... so refreshing !

  3. I want a Cuisinart Ice Cream so i can make Ice Cream like this...



Tell me what you think!
