Favorite Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

We have loved making Homemade Ice Cream this summer many times over.

This is our favorite recipe so far.
It's just from my favorite Betty Crocker Cookbook.

We always double this recipe.
If you're homemade ice cream maker has room, I suggest you triple it, It gets eaten fast.

3 large egg yolks
1/2 C. sugar
1 C. milk
1/4 t. salt
2 C. whipping cream (heavy) cream (We often use half and half, or 1 C. of heavy and 1/2 and 1/2.)
1 T. vanilla

Put a large empty bowl in your fridge so the bowl can become chilled.

Then, mix the egg yolks, sugar, milk, and salt in 2-qt. saucepan.
Cook over med. heat, stirring constantly, just to a boiling (DO NOT BOIL).
Refrigerate uncovered in your chilled bowl for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally, until room temp.

After the 2-3 hrs., stir in the whipping cream (or half/half) and vanilla into your milk mixture. Pour into ice cream maker and make according to your manufacturer's directions.

We are purists, when it comes to our homemade ice cream.
We just make Vanilla.
(If you need gooey and chocolate, or fruity, just add the gooey and fruity on top - after you make it.)

We also love making homemade ice cream in a bag.
Super Easy and Fun.
Great for kids on a summer night. Great activity and it actually works!
Try it for Family Home Evening.
