Vanilla Bean Soft Serve Ice Cream
Vanilla Bean Soft-Serve Ice Cream
by Christine Adams
adapted from the Hamilton Beach Ice Cream Maker Manual
Ice Cream Base:
2 cups half-and-half
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 Marx Foods Tahitian Vanilla Bean, split and seeds removed
Combine all ingredients (including the vanilla pod) in a 1- quart container with a tight lid. Shake until the sugar is dissolved. Chill for at least 1 hour. Remove the pod, pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. I used a single serve ice cream maker.
Fruit, Candy, Cookies, Nuts. I like to chop dark chocolate chips and add to the ice cream after the first 5 minutes.
