Someone in a another thread asked me to post my Vanilla Ice Cream receipe.
I do apologize, I have the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, so my recipe is for that.
Vanilla Ice Cream
1-1/2 cups whole milk
1-1/8 cups granulated sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1-1/2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract (to taste)
In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 25 to 30 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
Mint Ice Cream
- replace vanilla extract with mint extract
Cookies 'n Cream
- Add 3/4 cups of your favorite cookie, crushed, during the last 5 minutes of mixing.
