homemade creamy vanilla ice cream
Is everyone on the edge of their seats tonight? We made this delicious, creamy ice cream from start to finish in just 30 minutes. It's super, super delicious and with only 4 ingredients. We had three options tonight: root beer floats, sundaes or cones. The root beer floats got the most votes tonight.
homemade vanilla ice cream (adapted from my Cuisinart recipe booklet)
1 cup half and half, chilled
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
1 to 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, to taste
In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer or a whisk to combine the half and half and sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes on low speed. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla to taste. Turn the Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Yogurt Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker on, pour mixture into freezer bowl through ingredient spout and let mix until thickened, about 25 minutes.
