Homemade ice cream...help

I've got a brand new ice cream maker. It was a gift I was given about 2 years ago,but I've never used and can't find the recipe book. Could someone give me a simple easy recipe for vanilla ice cream please.?

I make brle often so I'm familiar with making custards. I also pick fresh strawberries and raspberries in summer. It's still winter here so I would like to try fruit ice cream as well. Many thanks, I don't know anyone around me that makes their own.

2 C Heavy Cream
2 C Whole Milk
6 Large Egg Yolks
7 Tb Corn Syrup
C Sugar
1 Tb Pure Vanilla Extract

Place the cream and milk into a 3-quart saucepan, over medium heat. Bring the mixture just to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and remove from the heat.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks until they lighten in color. Gradually add the corn syrup and sugar and whisk to combine.

Gradually add the cream/milk mixture to the egg/sugar mixture in small amounts while whisking constantly.

Return this mixture to the pan. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture reaches 170F. Maintain this temperature for 5 minutes.

Pour the mixture through a strainer into a container and allow it to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Place the mixture in the refrigerator and once it is cool enough not to form condensation on the lid, cover and store until the mixture is fully cooled.

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's directions. This should take approximately 25 minutes.

Transfer the ice cream to a suitable container for freezing and place a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the ice cream and add the cover. Place the container into the freezer for several hours until it is fully hardened.
