Vanilla Ice Cream
According to a survey done by the International Ice Cream Association, vanilla ice cream is still the most popular.
This recipe is super easy and absolutely delicious. I have made it both ways: with regular milk and heavy cream and with all heavy cream and they are both yum.
The best part about vanilla ice cream is that you can add in all sorts of delicious treats: crushed Oreo cookies, or any cookies for that matter, nuts, chocolate chips, fruit, cookie dough (egg free of course), anything you like. And then of course vanilla ice cream goes great with pie, cakes, sandwiched between two cookies! So you need a good vanilla ice cream recipe and this one is it.
