TWD Vanilla Ice Cream--Rewind



Weather forecast: Hottest week of the year. Looks like a perfect time for making homemade ice cream. I have a Cusinart canister that has taken up permanent residence in my freezer. I decided to put it to good use. Actually I decided to make vanilla ice cream to use the egg yolks leftover from Dories Chocolate Meringue cookies. Two great desserts.


Dories Vanilla Ice Cream starts out by making a simple egg custard, it's not hard but does take a little time as the custard must be chilled before making the ice cream. But the wait was well worth it, we were greeted with rich creamy ice cream. I thought about putting hot fudge on the ice cream but it really stood on its own.
My canister is back in the freezer and I have tree ripened peaches. Sounds like a yummy flavor to me.
Please check one of my favorite blogs Cafe Lynnyloo she has the best photography, everything looks yummy. Lynne will have the complete recipe. Spend a few minutes on her blog--you will be glad you did.

Ice cream is just right for the summer. I have been making some also.

The bread was good though. I hope you get to make it.

It was warm for us this week, so I reposted variations of the golden brioche loaves. Your ice cream looks wonderful!

Can you even believe my guys don't really like ice cream much? Seriously. What's with that?? I made watermelon sorbet and vanilla ice cream and they are both still in the freezer. It's beginning to feel like my ice cream maker is Andy's toy box in Toy Story 3...a cast aside item that's seen better days. I can't possibly eat all the ice cream myself...well, I could, but that's another story.

This has to be my favorite ice cream-you can do anything with the vanilla. Yours looks divine! Thanks for making this recipe that I chose for my first BFMHTY host. I'm sure you will get around to the Brioche when the weather cools some.
