Today I am sharing my husband's favorite ice cream recipe (just go ahead and consider him an ice cream connoisseur). I was shocked when I noticed this recipe was not on my blog! I'll go ahead and admit, baked goods rank higher on my guilty pleasures list. But not his...
This recipe comes from a good friend of ours, Ashley Cole-Tyson. She made ice cream a couple summers ago in different flavors for a cookout at her house. I went out and bought an ice cream maker like hers the very next day. No regrets...no rock salt and it takes minutes to freeze. This recipe makes a great ice cream base. I love to add mint and chocolate chips but most commonly I add cookie dough.
Vanilla Ice Cream
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk (I use skim)
1 cup sugar
1 dash salt
2 tsp vanilla
|These are the simple ingredients. I bet you have everything you need but the cream. I was shocked to find corn syrup listed as the 4th ingredient in the ice cream most commonly purchased at our house.|
While the mixture above is heating, combine eggs, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl and beat for 3 minutes until fluffy.
Temper the eggs; pour in about a cup of the hot cream into the eggs (verrrry slowly) while the mixer is running on low speed. Repeat with another cup of hot cream.
After it is all mixed together, pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining hot cream. Crank up the heat until the temp reaches 170 (usually is a minute for me).
If given the choice, this is how I
prefer my ice cream!
