Ice Cream Recipes

I got my Christmas present from my in-laws last night and it was the ice cream maker attachment for my KA! :D In my mind, it's never too cold for ice cream so I'd love it if you could post some good ice cream recipies I could experiment with. TIA!

This is my all time favorite homemade ice cream. My mom used to make it all the time when I was a kid.

Butter Pecan Ice Cream

1 1/2C chopped pecans
4Tbsp. butter(DO NOT SUBSTITUTE MARGARINE!!)

Cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes, stirring often to keep pecans from burning.

1 small box instant vanila pudding
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 large can evaporated milk
1/2C. sugar
1tsp. vanilla
1/2 gallon whole milk(or less- depending on size of ice cream maker)
4oz. cool whip

Mix together everything except whole milk & cool whip well. Fold in cool whip. Pour into ice cream maker, add whole milk to finish filling. Freeze until firm.

Oh, crewsk, that sounds so good--thank you! Butter Pecan is one of my favorites, too. I like that it doesn't call for heavy cream and a lot of eggs. It keeps it a little healthier!

I also like the fact that it dosen't have to be cooked or refigerated before freezing it. If you want to chill it before hand, just be sure to fold in the cool whip right before freezing it. If not, it will loose it's "air" & the ice cream won't be as "fluffly".

Making homemade ice cream is the best.

I have the Ben and Jerry's ice cream recipe book and it's the best. (You can also get the recipes online). The recipe calls for uncooked eggs; I dont like the idea of serving uncooked eggs to others, so I've used egg beaters every time.........I can't imagine it needing to taste any better.

The basic "sweet cream base" is-

2 Large Eggs
3/4 cup of Sugar
2 cups of Heavy or Whipping Cream
1 cup of Milk

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy (1-2 minutes). Whisk in the sugar a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended (1 min more). Pour in the cream and the milk and whisk to blend. Pour into ice cream maker. Makes a generous quart.

You can add 2 tsp of vanilla extract or 2 tsp of peppermint extract with the milk to make vanilla or mint ice cream. Also, you can add crushed cookies or choclate bars (any kind) during hte last 2 minutes of the churning. I've yet to make any other flavor but a vanilla or mint base.

I don't have time to type in a chocolate recipe, but i do know they are online.

ENjoy.

Laurie

PABaker if you like to try something a bit exotic here are two more recipes.

Mango Icecream

Mango Puree - 1 Can (sold in most Asian markets - Try Indian or any other Asian store)
1 pint heavy cream
1 can condensed milk
1 can of evaporated milk


Mix all these together with a handblender until well incorporated. Pour in a plastic container with a cover and place in the freezer. After an hour remove and stir to break the ice crystals. Place once again in the freezer for a couple of hours and remove and stir once again. Cover with seran wrap and place lid on the container and let it freeze.

Remove 20 minutes before serving. You can also make popsicles out of it. Once great way to make them is using small sterofoam cups and insert a popsicle stick in it. Once frozen you can remove and place in a large ziploc bag.

Lychee Icecream

2 pints heavy cream
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 can Lychees in light syrup (again available readily in all asian stores)

Place all the ingredients and mix with a handblender. Follow the same freezing process.

Lychees are an acquired taste but once you get a taste of them they are like no other fruit - they are simply addictive and the icecream is super addictive.
