A rich custardy ice cream that is loaded with cinnamon. Perfect with peach cobbler, apple pie, or almost any of your favorite cakes.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 6 eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, stir together the heavy cream and sour cream. Set aside in a warm place for about an hour to thicken.
In a separate bowl, beat eggs with sugar using an electric mixer until pale. Stir in the milk and cinnamon, and transfer to a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Stir in the vanilla, and remove from the heat. Set aside to cool.
When the custard has cooled, stir in the sour cream mixture. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
