French Vanilla Caramel Ice Cream

Susan Bickta


This basic recipe came with my ice cream maker. I tweaked it a bit to suit my taste. The finished ice cream is smooth, rich and creamy.... perfect for pie a la mode, ice cream sundaes or just plain! A real treat for your family that doesn't require a lot of fuss!
