A little over three years ago, I received the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid mixer, but I never got around to using it until this week. Like, it literally got stuck in the back of a cupboard, relegated to collecting dust. But I really wanted ice cream, and I really wanted it to be homemade. So I dug out the attachment and whipped up a batch.
I decided to modify Emeril Lagasse's recipe for "old time vanilla ice cream" because it didn't involve using eggs, which is a plus on a 90 degree day.
As far as the ice cream maker goes, whatever type you have will work. Just make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions for the machine you have.
