I hope you have someone as nice as S. in your life to buy you a Cuisinart ice cream maker. I have scarcely bought a carton of ice cream since. This is one of our favorite ice creams to make–it takes no cooking, like custard ice creams–3 minutes to mix in the blender, a chill in the refrigerator, 25 minutes in the maker and bliss–peanut butter ice cream – try it on blueberry flapjacks— a wonderful breakfast for a special occasion.
Put in your blender:
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (do not use old fashioned or the kind you need to mix)
3/4 cup sugar
2 2/3 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Process until smooth.
Chill in refrigerator for at least one hour.
Churn in ice cream maker.
