To get that perfect scoop of homemade ice cream, you need to put the sprinkles aside and start at the beginning with a simple vanilla ice cream base, and we’re going to show you how. From start to finish, the process to make rich, velvety ice cream at home is fairly simple.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

In a medium saucepan, whisk together ¾ cup of the milk, all of the half-and-half, sugar, and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, whisking frequently being careful to not scorch the milk.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and reserved ½ cup milk. Whisk thoroughly so there are no lumps. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the milk mixture and whisk constantly until it thickens and comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and cook for an additional 5 minutes until very thick and a line drawn on the back of a spoon with you finger comes clean. Stir in the vanilla extract. Pour into a bowl and chill over ice.

Let mixture chill a few hours in the refrigerator or overnight. Once chilled, whisk out any remaining lumps and freeze in ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions.
