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.
