Brown Sugar Ice Cream

Appearances notwithstanding, we have not been eating only ice cream this week. Just ask my boys; they're crying over it!

Anyway, this was another easy, no planning, no cooking ice cream. And until I can get my ice cream feet under me, I'm going the easy, no cooking route. Ah, who am I kidding, I'll probably try more complex flavors by the weekend! This ice cream tasted rather like caramel or butterscotch, either of which is a good option, in my book. Since it's very rich in cream, even
Ryan was fun complaining that this was really filling. I'm sure this recipe will be called upon again. So, from the ice cream recipe book I bought at a recent used book sale, I present...

BROWN SUGAR ICE CREAM

3 cups heavy cream
1 cup light cream (or 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup milk)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla


Whisk the flavors together in a bowl. When completely combined, p
our into your ice cream maker and "process according to manufacturer's directions." (I love the easy way out of the directions!)

My camera was probably confused by the moving beater in the bowl, but it doesn't matter, because mine's not as pretty as Pam's cranberry sorbet from Wednesday. However, look how much fun my little one was having cleaning up the beater for me!
