This was our first attempt at making homemade ice cream.. Usually I would wait to post a recipe until it is really perfected and foolproof, but this was pretty perfect as is!
Through facebook, I am apart of a local thirft group and found this cuisinart ice cream maker for sale. After researching a bit on Amazon, I offered a fair price and it was accepted. I know my fiance has been dying to make his own ice cream, so it was a great grab for us - especially being that it was brand new in the box!
I threw together some ingredients that we had at home to make peanut butter ice cream. I would highly recommend the cuisinart ice cream and sorbet maker - it worked better than expected!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 30 mintutes
Wait time: 2 hours (optional)
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbs peanut butter (I like Peter Pan)
1 tbs pure vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream
1. Whisk together in a medium bowl: Milk, sugar and peanut butter, until evenly mixed (about 2 minutes).
2. Add in vanilla and heavy cream and mix by hand until combined.
3. Turn on the Cuisinart ice cream maker and slowly pour in ice cream mixture. Let churn for about 25-30 minutes.
4. Let sit in freezer for about 2 hours, until hardened.
