2) Wisk in Sugar and then the vanilla.
3) To prepare instant milk, add the powder to water and wisk in. Slowly wisk into butter and sugar mixture. Mix well and pour into your ice cream freezer. To cut down on the freezer time, prepare your milk ahead of time and chill.

Really great!

I used the cuisinart ice cream maker that requires a pre-frozen bowl instead of rock salt. This recipe made more than 2 quarts, so I had to do a second smaller batch (not that I minded!) Within 30 minutes, I had rich creamy ice cream. it was a Wendy's Frosty thickness, so I put it in the freezer for a few hours and then I was able to scoop it. It hardened up TOO much over night, and it was like having vanilla shaved ice the next day. But I put some of the icy chunks in the blender, turned it on, and it went back to its super creamy yummy form. Thanks for a great recipe! 5 stars!

So easy!

We love this easy and tasty ice cream... and so much better for you than store bought ice cream!
