Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Every summer my Mom pulls out her ice cream machine and makes her Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. ┬áMy favorite is when she adds candy or fruit to the ice cream. I LOVE when she mixes it with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

  1. Oooh! I'm pinning this. We just got an iceless ice cream machine from a friend. You don;t need rocksalt or fresh ice, you just keep the canister stored in your freezer. It works like a charm! I'll suprise my husband with this tonight with a peanut butter syrup and peanut butter cup crumble. Thanks for the inspiration!
