Vanilla Ice Cream and Variants

  1. 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.

    My Favorite Variants

    - Mint ice cream with crushed Girl Scout Thin Mints
    - Vanilla ice cream with crushed Girl Scout Samoas/Carmel Delights

    I have a Cuisinart too.

    Don't get it out too often cause I eat the whole bowl in 1 sitting.

    Copied your recipe, will give it a try.

    Thank-you for sharing!
