Vanilla Ice Cream

Yield:
3 cups
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 heavy cream
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
Directions
  • In a medium heavy sauce pan, combine the cream and the half and half. Split the vanilla beans in half lengthwise and, using the tip of a knife, scrape out the small seeds into the cream mixture and drop in the pods. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove from the heat.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until thickened and pale. Pour in the hot cream mixture and stir until well combined. Strain into a large container and refrigerate until cold. Wash and dry the vanilla pods and reserve for another use.

  • When the cream mixture is cold, pour it into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturers instructions.
