When I’ve heard run-of-the-mill things called “vanilla” I never understood it, because at our house, vanilla was the b-e-s-t!

Larry Lawrence asked me yesterday on Facebook if I had the recipe for Mom’s ice cream. That brought memories of the summertime treat flooding back. Yuuuuummy, creamy, delicious ice cream.

If I could make the Homer Simpson drooling yummy sound, I would.

So today, I’m going to share that recipe.

You can make it any flavor you want, as long as it’s vanilla. 🙂

 Mary Sue’s Super, Best, Most Delicious, World’s-Yummiest Ice Cream

1 egg
1/2 pint heavy cream
1 pint half-and-half
4 Cups whole milk
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
2 Cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Using a mixer, lightly beat the egg, mix in cream, half-and-half, milk, Eagle Brand, sugar and vanilla. Pour in the freezer can and fill the rest of the way with whole milk.
Follow the Freezer instructions to freeze.

Grandma told me that sugar can freeze out, so be sure to taste the mixture before you add the final amount of milk and make sure it’s a little sweeter than you think it should be. If it’s not sweet enough, add more sugar. 🙂

And when it’s ready, share a bowl with me!

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  1. I guess you know, by me inquiring and you responding with your Mother’s recipe, this means I gotta get busy and outta my recliner again?
    Thanks, I think. 🙂

  2. What size of bucket did Mary Sue use? Should I say, what size bucket does the recipe call for? It sure sounds good!

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
