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.

Vanilla Ice Cream (adapted from the Cuisinart Instruction and Recipe Booklet and inspired by The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz)

1 cup whole milk (or 1 cup heavy cream)

3/4 cup sugar

2 cups heavy cream

2-3 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract

In a medium bowl, add 1 cup whole milk (or heavy cream) and sugar and whisk for 2 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved.

Whisk in the 2 cups of heavy cream and vanilla.  Place bowl into freezer for 30 minutes.

Pour into Ice Cream Machine and freeze according to the manufactures directions.

When ice cream is finished, if desired, fold in add- ins.  Then scoop ice cream into a 1 quart container and freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
