Cinnamon Ice Cream

Now here is a flavor ice cream that you don't see in the store, "Cinnamon Ice Cream." Well, I never have seen it. My husband and Father-in-Law like -- no love -- ice cream, and during my Father-in-Law's recent stay I made ice cream not once but twice. I don't think they would have minded if I made "Vanilla Bean Ice Cream" twice, but I wanted to make something different. Pork roast was the main protein for dinner that night, and I kept thinking about a dessert with cinnamon. Of course, I could have gone with "Quick Apple Crisp," but after all we are in the hotter months now.  I wanted something "cinnamony" and something "summery." That is how I decided to make "Cinnamon Ice Cream."

Cinnamon Ice Cream
1 1/2 cups of whole milk
1 1/8 cups of sugar
2 cups of half and half
1 cup of whipping cream
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract (using a quality extract will make a difference)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
rolled wafers, optional garnish

1. Blend whole milk and sugar together. I used my KitchenAid but you can use a bowl and electric blender or you can whip by hand. Mix on low until sugar is melted into the milk.




2. Add the vanilla extract to the milk and sugar.



3. Add the cinnamon to the milk and sugar.




4. Add 2 cups of half and half and 1 cup of whipping cream to the milk and sugar mixture.



5. Add the ice cream base to the ice cream maker.



6. Follow your ice cream maker's instructions. We spin the Cuisinart for 30 minutes before transferring it to a separate container to harden in the freezer. This is what it looked like after 30 minutes.



7. Use a spatula and scrape the ice cream into a freezer safe container. Keep in the freezer unit 5 minutes before you need to serve it for dessert.


Note: I personally like making the ice cream the day before I need to serve it.

  5. Yum! This sounds delicious and would be perfect with some sautéed bananas or grilled peaches. Can't wait to have some. Great recipe. :)

    1. Thanks for the comment. Oh, and I get it. There are so many gadgets I would like. I'm sure you know this, but you don't need an ice cream maker to make ice cream. You just need to put it in a cake pan and stir it every couple of hours. I've never done that though because I'm too lazy.
