Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 Cups whipping cream
  • 2 Cups half-and-half
  • 2 1/4 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 medium cinnamon rolls

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, combine the first 5 ingredients. Steep 1 ½ cinnamon rolls in the  liquids in pot for 20 minutes, blend with a kitchen blender, and then strain.

Cook the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon and reaches at least 160 degrees. Remove from the heat; cool quickly by setting pan in ice and stirring the mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight or freeze immediately. When ready to freeze, pour custard and vanilla into the cylinder of an ice cream freezer. Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.

Before serving, chop the remaining cinnamon rolls in ¼ inch pieces and fold into ice cream.

Cinnamon Roll Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Cinnamon Roll Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
