I have to give this one 5 stars because it was probably the easiest ice cream I have ever made. The flavor was very vanilla-ish and the texture was just like I remember from my grandparents homemade ice cream. I did sustitute fat free half and half for the water but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Thank you so much for sharing this I know I will make it again. Read More

Great flavor but the consistency is way too icy. Will definitely substitute heavy cream or half and half instead of milk next time. Read More

This recipe was pretty good. I cut it down to 8 servings to make 1 quart since that's all I can fit in my tiny hand-cranked ice cream maker. I used pasturized egg substitute rather than the raw eggs which I was a little weary of using. I also cut the fat by using 2% and skim evaporated milk. I admit that the texture was a little on the grainy side because of this but not too bad. It also froze up in the freezer quite nicely. My boyfriend told me this ice cream was as good as his grandma's which is quite a complement! This one's a keeper! Read More

I am a vanilla ice cream lover but my fiancé. So I made a small amount of this ice cream just for myself. But after he tasted he asked for more and eventually finished everything! Then he said we do not need to buy ice cream anymore. Read More

I cut the sugar down on this recipe to 2 cups and it came out just great. Not so sweet and I put the full 2 tblsp. of vanilla in to get that good vanilla flavor. My family loved it recently when we got together for a birthday celebration. I plan on making it again for Father's Day. Read More
