Easy Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Marilyn Fowler


A few weeks ago I ran across my old recipe box. Thrilled to find it I went through it as though I was opening a treasure box. I found this recipe (dated 1981) the year my sweetheart and I were married. I love Ice Cream and any thing that is easy. Add ingredents that you love and make it your special treat too! ENJOY!!
