I realize it is no longer ice cream season, but I love this recipe so much, I wanted to share it. I got this recipe from the Studio 5 website. And let me tell you, it is dang delicious. Honestly, I'm not an ice cream lover, but I have gotten rave reviews from many people. What more can I say? Try it. Save money by making it yourself, rather than spending ridiculous amounts of money at fancy schmancy ice cream parlors. =) You won't be sorry.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
1 Tb. Vanilla
2 cups chilled whipping cream

Mix sugar, salt, milk, and egg yolks in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until bubbles appear around edge of mixture in pan. Cool to room temperature. Stir in vanilla and cream. Pour into ice cream freezer can, put dasher into place. Cover can and adjust crank. Place in freezer tub, fill tub 1/3 full of ice; add remaining ice alternately with layers of rock salt (6 parts ice to 1 part rock salt) Turn crank until it turns with difficulty. Remove lid and dasher, stir mixture and pack down in freezer can, replace lid and repack in ice and salt mixture. Let freeze several hours.
For fruity ice cream decrease vanilla to 1 tsp. mash enough fruit to measure 2 cups. Mix 1/2 cup sugar with fruit. Stir in fruit after adding cream.

Any question? Leave a comment and I'll get back with you asap.


  1. Is that the one you had at Brit's birthday party because man oh man it was delicious and I am not usually an ice cream person either but it was YUMMY!!

  2. Sorry it's taken me so long to answer. I still feel like an idiot with this blogging thing. One day, I'll be an expert, I know it. Anyway, to answer your question, YES! It was the ice cream at Brit's birthday. =)
