I just recently started making homemade ice cream, I do have to say it taste so much better then store bought. However, it does cost a bit more to make then store bought, depending with what all you want in it. Just simple vanilla is cheap to make, milk, sugar, and heavy cream, maybe a little vanilla extract if you want.
Confession time, I found this awesome ice cream recipe I wanted to make, well I didn’t read it all the way and was making ice cream with raw egg! EEK I didn’t bother to follow the path with the hyperlink to read how to make the base. With that being said, we are all still alive, but I decided when making this ice cream to just leave the egg out.
I decided to look up what egg does for ice cream, and I read it keeps it from freezing completely. Therefore, I decided to cook the base with the egg and see the difference. Freeze different was none, it froze the same hard as a rock… I have read to add a small amount of vodka so that it doesn’t completely freeze, so I am going to try that one day.
My conclusion, I like homemade ice cream WITHOUT the egg, I personally think it tastes so much better, and it cuts the making time down.
Cinnamon Oatmeal Homemade Ice Cream: (My way)
2 cup Milk
4 cups Heavy Whipping cream
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
Mix altogether and place in the freezer to chill.
Get your ice cream machine all set up, then pour half of the mixture above in your maker. OR you can just leave in the freezer, and mix every so often this will take longer but works if you do not have a machine.
Now take about 3 cups of Oatmeal cookies and break them up. I use just store bought cookies, no icing on them, and half a bag of chocolate chips. I like using the dark chocolate. Put it all in a ice cream pail and freeze.
If you are using an ice cream maker I usually, only run mine for 20 minutes. The ice cream is still soft I take it out mix it with my cookies, and chocolate chips. Then pour the remaining mixture into the ice cream machine and let that go for 20 minutes. Then mix it all together and let it freeze. Turns out super yummy!
