Homemade Ice Cream

This is a recipe you HAVE to try. It's so easy and creamy and delish!

1 Tall thing of Half & Half
1 Tall thing of Whipping Cream
1 1/2 cup of sugar
2 T vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Whisk it all together. Pour it in your ice cream freezer and let it go! If you want super duper amazing results, make it the day or hours before you plan to use it. Transfer it to a freezer safe storage container and put it in the freezer. It is just the best. Creamy dreamy.

Tonight, I ate mine with a chocolate fudge brownie underneath and strawberries and chocolate syrup on top. Seriously, I can't tell you HOW much you will LOVE THIS!!!!!


.......I think there's one more brownie........................

do u have to have that big bucket thingY? i always wondered how those worked.

yes, that big bucket thingY (ice cream freezer) is ours. we registered for it when we got of the best things we got!

they are fairly cheap at walmart, target, etc. you will also need Rock Salt (by the real salt in the baking aisle). It HAS to be rock salt (helps lower the temp to freezing).

So, you get a bag of ice, rock salt, and the ingredients for the recipe. mix the recipe together, pour it in the silver canister. put the canister back in. pour ice and rock salt (alternating) all the way to the top of the canister.

we have an electric maker, they make manual ones too, but with the electric, you can start it and let it go. you DO have to watch that it doesn't stop turning (great job for one of your 1000 kids) so you don't burn up the engine.

after 15-30 minutes, you have the yummiest ice cream ever.
