Its been a while since I've made ice cream this summer and I was craving it. As much as I LOVE Cold Stone (And trust me I do! They have like these crazy ice cream cupcakes I am dying to try!) and could have easily driven to it, I wasn't about to pay $4.50 for small size with two mix-ins=/ Let me rephrase: My mom wouldn't lend me any money so I'd have to use my own. Gasp. But, she would give me money to stop at Giant Eagle (the local supermarket) to pick up heavy cream!
Alright, so after a quick ingredient pickup I returned home to make this super easy cinnamon ice cream. But, oh wait, we don't have enough cinnamon..... Seriously? Yes. So it's almost 9, my show is about to come on (Last Comic Standing), and I didn't want to make another trip down to the store. That's what neighbor's are for right? My neighbor Beth is a life saver. She always has everything I need. Okay, now I've got my cinnamon and I'm ready to go. Now add the three tablespoons, and then... Oh wait. That seems like an awful large amount of cinnamon in that bowl. Maybe I should double check the--- AHHH! three TEAspoons! Ok ok. Ok ok ok ok. Thank goodness cinnamon floats. I can easily just skim it off the top. Ahhh crisis averted. And a little extra cinnamon never hurt anyone!
I dump everything in the ice cream maker (Thank you CSN stores!!!) and start the churning in time to watch my show! Question: Does anybody else absolutely adore the way the ice cream tastes when it's only been churning for like 15 minutes? Like having some spoonfuls while it's churning? This might be wrong, but I hope someone else agrees with me.
Oh, and I forgot to take pictures... YIKES! I always feel like a post is sooo bland without pictures. Sorry=(((
Cinnamon Ice Cream (I can't remember where I found this recipe so I found a similar one, and it lists a custard variation as well, and I'm listing that and what all I can remember)
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 teaspoons cinnamon (or more because I dumped a ton in.. whoops!)
I believe you just combine these ingredients and add them to your ice cream maker per the makers directions.
