Guess what I got for Christmas?
An Ice Cream maker!
I've been making ice cream every chance I get.
It's so easy and delicious I wonder how I've gotten by without one for so long. So far I haven't experimented much. I keep making the vanilla over and over. At some point I'll have to get going and try something else. I keep meaning too.... as I found tons of ice cream recipes I want to try.
But everybody just loves the vanilla so much!
This is the recipe I have been using:
Simple Vanilla Ice Cream
1 c. whole milk
3/4 c. granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 c. heavy cream
1 T. pure vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk, sugar, and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or overnight.
Pour into freezer and mix until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.
