  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine cream and milk. Place vanilla bean and scrapings in pot, and sprinkle with half the white sugar. Allow to just come to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks together with the remaining sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl. When the cream is ready, pour a third of it into the egg mixture, and whisk. Pour egg mixture into remaining hot cream and return to the heat until mixture coats the back of a metal spoon. Do not boil.
  3. Strain custard and chill until cold. Then pour into the canister of an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

To make your ice cream more creamy let the ice cream base sit overnight in the fridge. The next day it will be vanilla sauce/pudding like. This is a great, creamy ice cream recipe.

This was so rich, we could barely eat a scoop apiece! It was tasty enough, but I'd cut waaaaay back on the eggs next time. I made it for my daughter's eighth birthday party and some of her fri...

Wonderful but you must double the recipe to get a full batch. I cut down on the eggs when doubled i use only 16 eggs

This ice cream is good, but I think it is more like a custard. We enjoyed making it as a family and we hope to make it again!
