This ice cream is superb - thanks Maria for the recipe. My husband is a huge peanut butter cup fan and this recipe did not disappoint. I used 2 per cent milk in place of the whole milk, and whole milk in place of the half-and half. I used light condensed milk, 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/3 cup of peanut butter (as some indicated it was too peanut buttery). I couldn't find miniature peanut butter cups, so used 6 regular sized cups, chopped. To deal with the thickening issue other reviewers identified, I beat the eggs and sugar on high speed (I have a Kitchen Aid electric mixer - so things usually need less time than indicated) for 4 minutes. The cooking time to make the custard is then the 5 minutes, as it's already thick to begin with - and because the recipe makes a custard, the lower fat milks still yield a creamy texture. I'll definitely make again and add some skim milk next time just to see the results.
