  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together the sugar and half-and-half. When the mixture begins to simmer, remove from heat, and whisk half of the mixture into the eggs. Whisk quickly so that the eggs do not scramble. Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan, and stir in the heavy cream. Continue cooking over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and whisk in vanilla and cinnamon. Set aside to cool.
  2. Pour cooled mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

This ice cream is SO smooth and creamy!! I serve this with the Apple Crisp II. Insead of using vanilla flavoring, I use a Vanilla Bean paste that I got at William Sanoma. This recipe is a great ...

This ice cream is SO rich but SO good. My only suggestion is to let it ripen in the freezer before serving it; it tastes better and takes the edge off the rich sweetness. I served it with apple ...

I love cinnamon ice cream so I was nervous about it not living up to my expectations. I LOVE this recipe and will make it again and again! I cooled the cooked mixture in an ice bath to make sure...
