    hcopeland's Note:

    Someone bought me a Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book (title). This book is great it tells how to make most of their flavors and some. The book can be ordered at the bookstore for about $8.95. The reason I like this ice cream is because you can freeze it and it is like the store bought hard ice cream. I do not eat it right from the freezer because to me it is to creamy. French Vanilla

      I noticed a lot of people were concerned about using raw eggs. The technique of slowly adding sugar to the beaten eggs kills the bacteria causing enzymes, "cooking" them and making them safe for consumption. I used my hand mixer instead of a whisk and it turned out great! Very easy and loved not having to stand by the stove in this heat! Next time I will use vanilla sugar to give more vanilla punch!

      This is amazing, delicious, and easy! I used the double boiler method (cooking the milk & sugar til slightly thickened, then slowly whisking in the eggs and cooking for a while to get the eggs cooked) before I added the cream. I also used vanilla bean paste for that authentic look and the best taste possible. LOVE this one, thanks so much for sharing!

      This makes the most delicious ice cream! It takes a little muscle to whisk the eggs enough, but it's well worth it. Make sure you get the eggs really frothy and thick; that is KEY. I'd trade a tired-out whisking arm for this ice cream any day.
