Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

As soon as Joe told me he wanted apple pie I knew I would be making vanilla ice cream. While French vanilla is traditionally served with apple pie, I have had my eye on this recipe for awhile. I love vanilla bean ice cream and it was everything I had hoped it would be. The vanilla flavor was delicious. This might just be my favorite ice cream I’ve made yet.

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream



3 cups heavy cream, or 2 cups heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk

¾ cup sugar

pinch of salt

1 vanilla bean

¾ tsp. vanilla extract



Pour 1 cup of cream into a medium saucepan, and add the sugar and salt. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise with a knife and scrape the seeds from the bean into the saucepan. Add the pod to the pot. Warm over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.


Remove saucepan from the heat and stir in remaining 2 cups of cream and vanilla extract.


Chill the mixture in the refrigerator. When mixture is thoroughly chilled remove the vanilla bean, and then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
