Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 pasteurized eggs (like Egglands Best brand)
2 c. sugar
2 small boxes vanilla instant pudding mix
1 8 oz. tub of cool whip
1/2 c. pecans (optional)
1 t. vanilla
1/2 gallon milk


Beat eggs.

Add sugar and pudding mix, beat thouroughly.

Stir in cool whip, nuts, vanilla and milk.

Pour into ice cream maker according to your maker directions.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

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.
