Very easy. We left out the lemon and it was just great!

I wouldn't really call this a vanilla ice cream because of the significant amount of lemon extract in the recipe. The lemon flavor takes over the vanilla, which tastes good but something to keep in mind. This recipe makes a decent amount of ice cream, so I used the servings calculator and cut the recipe in half. I made the ice cream using the exact amount og ingredients called for except that I cooked the ice cream until thickened because of the eggs in it, which I recommend doing. Just combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and whisk together for about 10 minutes or so on medium to medium high heat until slightly thickened and allow mixture to completely cool in the fridge before transferring to your ice cream maker.

This recipe is delicious! I loved the thick consistency and the great taste. I substituted egg nog for half of the 5 cups of milk and everyone loved it! It was gone in minutes!

LOVE THIS ICE CREAM!! I have made it four times so far! We liked the lemon flavor but also have made it with half the lemon and added more vanilla, and have also made it using 4 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla only. Great either way, depending on your taste. Very rich and creamy!!

WOW!!!! Absolutely the BEST homemade icecream I have ever had!!!! The only change I made was using all vanilla extract instead of lemon. My family would give it ten stars if they could!!! I will definitely be using this recipe again and again. It is also a great vanilla icecream to add mix-ins. Thanks JEMR2 for a great recipe!!!

Good; however, much too much lemon for our taste. I'll make it again using less lemon and I think it'll be good.

Very good recipe. I left out the lemon and doubled the vanilla extract. I also used whole milk in place of the cream. Will be making again!!
