"I make this recipe in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (ICE-20) and it comes out so creamy and delicious - better then Hagen Daz! The secret is the custard that you make prior to adding it to the ice cream maker. How good is this ice cream? My DS decided to do a science project called Taste vs. perception. We were going to give out samples of vanilla ice cream and vanilla ice cream with red food coloring in it so it looked like strawberry ice cream, then ask people which flavor they liked better. We set up our ice cream stand outside of a movie theatre and had over a hundred people sample both ice creams (we served them in little sample cups with tiny spoons). People were telling us that it was the best vanilla or strawberry ice cream that they ever tasted. People were begging me for the recipe. One woman ate so many samples that we had to close down until she left. Word got out and people were actually coming out of the theater to sample our ice cream (staff too). Over a hundred people can't be wrong - this is great ice cream! Oh yes, the results: Only about 14% of the people figured out it was the same flavor and most of them were teenagers. The others couldn't tell and even though they thought both tasted really good, they liked the flavor of one over the other. And yes, my son got an A on his project!"

"Mmmm....so rich and creamy. It's hard to think of buying store bought ice cream after having this. Thanks for posting the recipe"
"This is delicious. Very creamy. The only thing I would change is to double the recipe. Thanks for sharing."
"This takes a bit of work to cook the custard but it is worth it! I poured the custard in a 13x9 pan and put it in the fridge so it would cool faster. The end result is a very smooth ice cream. So good. The only thing I did differently was to add a inch of salt when cooking the eggs and milk. Thanks for a great recipe and I will double next time, too. PS...I don't think this is really 157 calories per serving. :-)"
"I too, made this because I have the same machine. It was great and I plan to make it again. I think I will try to double the recipe next time and add a little more vanilla. But everyone loved it."
"I tried this recipe last night I was fantastic. We almost could not get it to the freezer to harden, because every one had to have a taste. I will make this one again and again"
"I tried this recipe because I have the same ice cream maker and was looking for recipes. I have tried the ones that came with the machine but they were icy instead of creamy. This recipe was the best in fact it lasted about 20 minutes. This is a 5 star for sure. Thanks!!!!!"
"I have never had ice cream turn out so delicious! This will be a family favorite this summer for sure! Thanks for sharing!!! Made and enjoyed for PAC, Spring, 2009"
"Wow! I have to thank reviewer RbdCbn for mentioning this recipe. Creamy and Dreamy! Use a good vanilla as the flavor really shines through. My only suggestion? I would double the recipe next time :) Thanks for sharing. *Made for Spring PAC 2009*"
"Fantastic ice cream! We loved it! It's very rich and creamy. I made this last night and it was good then and it's even better now. I make alot of desserts for my family but I almost never eat them- I just taste because I'm a diabetic. This one I could not resist! It's really good. Try it, you'll love it!
