This is an easy way to make a delicious ice cream! Since it contains alcohol, it's not for kids, but a great treat for adults!
Prep time: 5 minutes, plus 20-25 minutes to chill all the ingredients, 25 minutes mixing time, and 2 hours to set. We used a Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker, but the recipe should work with any ice cream maker.
2 Cups of Heavy Cream
1 Cup Whole Milk
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Shots Bailey's Irish Cream
Step 1: Measure and Prepare ingredients
Gather all ingredients, and measure them to the proper amount. Put them in the freezer for 20-25 minutes so they are well chilled.
We store our ice cream bowl in the freezer, but if you don't, make sure it is placed in to freeze with the rest of the ingredients. The key to good ice cream is a bowl that is well frozen!
Step 2: Mix the ingredients
Once everything is well chilled, in a medium bowl, mix the cream, milk, and sugar. Using a small hand mixer or wire whisk beat ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
Note: Leave the Baily's in the freezer for now, because alcohol doesn't freeze we don't want to add that until the very end.
Step 3: Assemble your ice cream maker
Take the bowl out of the freezer, put your ice cream maker together, and plug it in.
Step 4: Making the liquid solid
The most important step here is to turn the ice cream maker on before you begin to pour the mixture in!
Once the bowl is turning, pour the ingredients you combined in the small bowl into the ice cream maker. Use a rubber scrapper to get all of the mixture.
Step 5: Wait...
Now you can sit back and wait about 20 minutes for the machine to do it's magic!
Step 6: Add the Bailey's
After about 20 minutes, when the ice cream is nice and thick, add the two shots of Bailey's, while the machine is still mixing. Continue to let the machine mix for another 5 minutes.
Step 7: Storing you Ice Cream
Once the ice cream has mixed for 25 minutes, turn off the machine, and disassemble. Transfer the mixture into a plastic container, and freeze for 2 hours to allow it to settle and firm.
