Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

If you read my post on homemade chocolate ice cream you’ll know that I picked up a $70.00 ice cream maker at the thrift store for $3.00 (SCORE!). So I’ve been browsing around for ice cream recipes, but my youngest son, Dominic, really wanted me to try good ole vanilla.

So I found some fun ice cream recipes on Old Fashioned Living and one of them was this Vanilla Ice Cream recipe (below). You see I didn’t have any vanilla beans lying around so I wanted to try this one since it used vanilla extract instead. it’s very tasty, though it scoops out more the consistency of ice milk, if you’ve ever had that. Dominic enjoyed it immensely and I intend to try some of the other recipes on that link too :)

    Congrats on your ice cream maker find! I would have done exactly what you did, bought it as quick as I could. I also like how you took your photos in the snowy outside. It gives the ice cream a unique perspective.
