Recently the kind and talented Lyndsay left a comment with her recipe for homemade ice cream. I've always wanted to try making ice cream in a freezer bag so last night we gave it a shot. The children LOVED it! Making this ice cream was so simple and easy, I thought you'd like to try it out too.
To get started you'll need to gather:
2 zipper freezer bags. Lyndsay suggested using one gallon and one quart, but I only had the gallon size on hand and it worked just fine.
1 C. cream
1 C. milk
6 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
salt (I used Kosher)
In one bag mix the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla then seal. In the other bag add enough ice to fill the bag halfway. Add 1/2 cup salt over the ice. Place the sealed cream mixture bag on top of the ice and salt and seal the bag. Knead and shake the bag for about 5 minutes until the mixture in the inner bag has thickened. Remove the inner bag (containing the ice cream) and enjoy!
We sandwiched the ice cream inside my favorite chocolate chip cookies that Owen and I baked earlier in the day. It was a simple and delicious summertime family night treat.
