homemade vanilla oreo ice cream

This past weekend we pulled out our ice cream maker!  We have two ice cream makers, but our favorite for groups is the MaxiMatic Old-Fashioned Ice-Cream Maker.  My friend Anna is an ice cream genius, and the recipe she directed me to was amazing.  And I will never want another type of ice cream again!  Make sure you eat this with my easy Chocolate Magic Shell!

If you make this homemade vanilla ice cream, try it with adding several sleeves of oreos at the end!  The oreos will crush up and almost make a creamy chocolate ice cream.  Its the creamiest you’ll ever have!
