    Queen of the luscious vanilla ice creams!


    5 egg yolks.
    2/3 cup sugar.
    1 cup half and half.
    2 tablespoons butter.
    1 cup heavy or whipping cream.
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract.


    In medium bowl, beat egg yolks $ sugar until well blended. Pour into top pot of double boiler. Stir in half & half.
    Cook & stir over gently boiling water until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in butter. Stirring occasionally, cool on a rack for about 15 minutes.

    Stir in heavy or whipping cream and vanilla extract.

    Pour into ice cream canister. Freeze / churn in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions; of follow refrigerator-freezer directions. Makes about 1 quart.



    1. I always double the recipe to obtain at lease 2 quarts of it.

    2. When pouring into ice cream freezer's bowl, do NOT go beyond 3/4 of the way up! This allows for the head room that's needed for the mixture to expand, aerate and become lighter as it churns and freezes.

    3. You can use the 64-oz Glad plastic container to prime the ice cream in as it freezes solid. :wink:

    Thanks Shermie, this looks great. I'll have to pick up the ingredients and try it out. How much would you say the mixture expands in volume?

    I don't have any experience making ice cream yet. Is there a way you can mess it up? Like is there a stage you have to do perfectly or it won't work out?

    You welcome!

    The mixture will expand to about 1/4 more to reach the brim of the freezing bowl just below the top.

    If a self-contained unit is out of your reach and you don't want to fork up the dough for it, then there are cheaper units that allow you to freeze the bowl in the freezer first. Or electric churns that use rock salt & ice. :wink:
