Old Time Vanilla Ice Cream

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Dona England

Recipe from Emeril Lagasse. I usually double the recipe. Cooking time is churning time.

So creamy and delicious!! I made a gallon of this by tripling the recipe...we ate every bite in one sitting! It had a smooth consistency and excellent vanilla flavor. I used evaporated milk for a portion of the heavy cream. It did not affect flavor, but reduced calories. I am going to make this again tonight for a birthday party...it is so good - better than store bought!
