I splurged and bought myself a little present: an ice cream maker!

Mine is a Cuisinart Pure Indulgence Ice Cream Maker. I tried it out recently and am sharing the results and recipe with you today!
I started with the basic: vanilla ice cream. This is my first ice cream maker and I’ve only ever made no-churn ice cream recipes in the past. Though they are yummy, there is something special about making ice cream in this machine. It was pretty simple and I plan to make more….lots more! Of course, I’ll share the fruits of my labour with all of you.
Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
The recipe itself is only four ingredients. The whole milk and sugar and mixed together on low first and then vanilla extract and cream is stirred in. Then it’s time for the magic to happen. The mixture goes into the freezer bowl of your ice cream machine and it churns for about 25 minutes. You can even watch to see it take shape.
I placed the ice cream in some freezer containers and let it continue to freeze in the freezer for a good six hours. I prefer my ice cream a little on the firmer side. If you like soft serve ice cream, don’t leave it in the freezer as long.
It came out perfectly. John even said it was better than store bought ice cream. It’s so creamy, indulgent with a pure sweet flavour. I can’t wait to make more, but I need more freezer space and freezer containers!
