I bought an ice cream maker this summer and had been looking for some easy recipes for ice cream. I didn't like the recipes that came with the maker because for some reason when I made the plain, basic vanilla ice cream it was so greasy we couldn't eat it. Now, honostly I can not remember where I got this recipe from but if you have an ice cream maker you HAVE TO try this recipe.

A few tips ...I have used both regular non-pasteurized and pasteurized eggs and no one ever got sick. And I have used the 9 oz. tubs of cool whip instead of the 8 oz. I can`t do to much dairy so when ever I make this I used lactose free milk (Lactaid or Dairy Ease brand)

Last time I made this I added some chopped up fresh strawberries (about 1/2 c.) and I used 1 teaspoon of strawberry flavoring.

I have always wanted to make homemade ice cream but was always afraid to for that reason alone.. how can it be as good as the store bought (and I don't have to clean up). But your recipe has intrigued me. I bet this recipe can work as a base for many flavors as well.
