      In a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring the liqueur to a simmer.
    2. 2
      Cook until the liqueur is reduced to about 1/2 cup (about 5-7 minutes); the liqueur will appear thicker and slightly syrupy; set aside.

    5. 5
      Slowly beat the hot milk into the egg/sugar mixture.
    6. 6
      Pour entire mixture back into the saucepan and put over low heat.
    7. 7
      Stir continually with a whisk until the custard thickens slightly (don't let mixture boil or eggs will scramble).
    8. 8
      Remove pan from heat and pour hot mixture through a strainer into a large clean bowl.
    9. 9
      Allow mixture to cool slightly.
    10. 10
      Mix in the reduced liqueur, cream, and vanilla.
    11. 11
      Cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
    12. 12
      Stir the chilled custard.
    13. 13
      Freeze in 1 or 2 batches in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions.
    14. 14
      The ice cream will be soft but ready to eat.
    15. 15

      I love this recipe! When I was simmering the irish cream, it took considerably longer than seven minutes, but I just kept checking to see if it was reduced to the correct amount in my measuring cup. When it finally was the correct amount, it looked almost like it had been burned it was so dark and was very thick, but didn't smell so I went with it. I didn't uses bailey's irish cream, I used Saint Brendan's (cheaper), so maybe that's why. I followed the rest of the directions exactly, and it came out absolutely delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!
