  1. Put the cream cheese into the bowl of a stand mixer fiitted with the mixing paddle. Mix the cream on medium speed until very smooth.
  2. With the mixer running, gradually add the sugar and salt; mix until homogenous. Add the mascarpone and mix until well combined. Slowly add the milk and vanilla; mix until smooth.
  3. Use the fold function to mix in the sour cream. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, or overnight. Turn on the Cuisinart® ice cream maker; pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
