Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

This ice cream can easily be dressed up by adding your favorite chopped candies or sprinkles at the end of churning.




1½           cups whole milk

1              cup granulated sugar

pinch sea or kosher salt

2½           cups heavy cream

½ to 1      tablespoon pure vanilla extract


1.   In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of at least 2 hours, or overnight. Whisk mixture together again before pouring into the ice cream maker.

2.   Pour the mixture into the mixing bowl of the Cuisinart® Ice Cream and Gelato Maker fitted with the ice cream paddle. Turn unit on, set Timer and press Start. Let mix until thickened, about 40 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
