Makes: 6 to 10 servings (1 quart)
A good vanilla ice cream should be in every cook’s repertoire. And this one—extra-creamy and packed with vanilla beans—should be it. There are an unlimited number of pairings for vanilla ice cream, but try it alongside a warm slice of our Chocolate Pecan Pie or our Custardy Pumpkin Pie for a real treat.
Game plan: The ice cream base (unfrozen ice cream) can be made up to 2 days in advance, though it needs 3 to 4 hours to harden in the freezer after it’s been processed—unless, of course, you want soft serve.
