Delicious homemade ice cream.

It's a freezing cold day.......so what am I doing......making ice cream!! Partly because it's so delicious.........but mainly because Tesco were selling off large tubs of cream for 25p........and as the only other ingredients needed are icing sugar and eggs.......this makes it a very cheap treat.

Vanilla Ice Cream
  1. 4 oz sifted icing sugar
  2. 1/2 pint double cream
  3. few drops vanilla essence
  4. 4 eggs seperated
Whisk the egg yolks.
Whisk egg whites til stiff, then whisk in icing sugar a little at a time.
Whisk cream til forms soft peaks, then fold into meringue mixture with the egg yolks and vanilla essence.
This amount will just about squeeze into a Carte D'or ice cream container.

I love this recipe cause apart from it being the most deliciously creamy ice cream......it's so simple to make....no messing about taking out of the freezer to re-beat.
Make it........Freeze it.....Eat it
Possibly all on the same day!!

That looks fabulous!!!
What is "icing sugar"? I've seen it now in several UK recipes and have been meaning to ask. Is it regular sugar? Powdered sugar? Something else?
