Great ice-cream! I was out of eggs so I thought I'd try this one and really can't notice any difference in the finished product so may just use this one as my standard vanilla recipe now instead of the egg type. I used 1% milk in place of the half and half with good results.

This is the same recipe I use for vanilla ice cream. I usually double it though. If you add chocolate syrup to it, the recipe says to use less sugar. This is a really good recipe to add in whatever you want. My favorite add in is oreo cookies for cookies and cream! If you want really decadent ice cream, I suggest using vanilla bean seeds. Enjoy!

I decided to break down and blow my diet on the 4th of July and I was in search of the perfect vanilla ice cream recipe, and I do believe I found it. I choose this one as it did not have the addition of eggs and sounded so very simple. This was my first attempt at making ice cream. The only change I made was I substituted 1/3 vanilla bean in place of the 1tb of vanilla. The results were fabulous. Rich, creamy and flavorful. Sue this is a winner!
