I chose this recipe out of curiosity because I finally wanted to try and step outside my comfort zone of the 2:1 ratio of heavy cream to half and half or whole milk that I am very rigid about. I still am. This was not nearly as rich or creamy, or have that wonderful mouth feel that I'm accustomed to and prefer. It was worth a try, but it's reaffirmed my preference and will not make a convert of me. (I scaled this to 10 servings to fit my 1-1/2 quart ice cream maker)

I have made this recipe numerous times with numerous alterations and have finally find the one that works for me. I decrease the extract (personal preference). I heat the half-n-half/cream and sugar on the stove until the sugar is dissolved the night before I want to make the ice cream. I chill the mixture all night. I put the ice cream in my ice cream maker for about 25 min. Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours. Take it out and let it soften a little and serve. It was wonderful!! I make it way to often and my chocaholic son never seems to mind that it is vanilla!

I chose to make this recipe my first try at vanilla ice cream due to no cooking required and no raw eggs in it. I used homemade vanilla (from this website), so the ice cream had little specks of vanilla bean in it, and was nice and creamy. The instructions say to mix the ingredients together IN the freezer container of the ice cream maker; don't do that if you have the kind of ice cream maker with the already-frozen canister! Mix them in a bowl and then add to the ice cream maker! Oh, I also scaled it down to 8 servings for my 1.5qt ice cream maker; it didn't make a lot; I think 16 servings would be about right for a full recipe. Thanks for the recipe, Jackie!

Delicious recipe for homemade ice cream...I just modified it a little bit by using 1% milk instead of heavy cream, almost 2 cups sugar, and 4 big spoonfuls of vanilla. My entire family said it was the best ice cream they have ever had! Also, I warmed up the milk and dissolved the sugar in it so it wouldn't be gritty.

My family loves this recipe. It's very easy. Tip for keeping it soft even after it's been in the freezer for a while: don't add the cream to the mix before it goes into the ice cream mixer. While the freezer is working, use an electric mixer to whip the cream into stiff peaks. After the freezer stops, let the iced mix harden for about ten minutes. Fold the whipped cream into the iced mix until combined. Allow to harden for at least two hours in the freezer or it will be too soft to serve.

Good ice cream as is. I like to reduce the fat by using fat free half and half, and 2% milk instead of heavy cream.

Very good! I made this recipe three times in two days (with variations) for a large family gathering. The first time it had a grainy texture, so I dissolve the sugar in a 1/4 cup of water and the grainy texture was gone. On my last batch I substituted 1/2 c of vanilla creamer for the half and half . . . IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!
