With summer just around the corner, I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Once you taste this super simple homemade vanilla ice cream you won’t be able to scream, because you won’t be able to stop shoveling it into your mouth! But hey, slow down! I don’t want you to get a brain freeze. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law Joann, who is not only a great mother, but also a great cook!
This is such an easy recipe. You just put the ingredients into the ice cream freezer and it does all the work. Without even warming the oven, you’ll have a sweet treat that is sure to cool you off on the hottest summer day!
Homemade vanilla ice cream tastes great sandwiched between two M&M cookies!
- 2 quarts half & half
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream
- 3 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 Cups sugar
- few grains of salt
- Mix all ingredients and freeze in an ice cream maker
- My ice cream freezer is pretty small, so I had to cut the recipe in half. It came out great!
