Egg Nog Ice Cream
The easiest holiday dessert you’ll make this year, this homemade egg nog ice cream recipe is delicious!
You know I love AE Egg Nog, my husband loves AE Egg Nog and I’m guessing once you’ve tried it you’re going to be a loyal fan as well. We call it liquid gold in our house and over the past several years I’ve made some delicious holiday recipes using it. My egg nog cinnamon bread is a reader favorite and the egg nog cheesecake is to die for! This egg nog french toast casserole (which is basically bread pudding) is the perfect Christmas breakfast and if you’re doing holiday baking don’t forget about my caramel egg nog cookies! Lest you think I have run out of ideas of what delicious recipe to create using my favorite holiday drink I bring you egg nog ice cream! Guys, it’s literally 1 ingredient. AE Egg Nog.
Have you ever made homemade ice cream? What do you use? Eggs, Milk, Cream… All of those ingredients are in AE Egg Nog. AE Dairy’s cream has a higher fat content than most other brands which means your ice cream comes out silky smooth, rich and peeerrrrrfect!
So get ready for this really difficult “recipe”. Get yourself a bottle of liquid gold, I mean AE Classic Egg Nog and put it in your ice cream maker. As the ice cream was mixing I thought to myself “I think I’ll throw in some butter cookie chunks” channeling my inner Ben & Jerry. If you enjoy chunks of goodness in your ice cream I highly recommend adding some roughly chopped butter cookies in with the egg nog.
I ended up having to buy 3 quarts of AE Egg Nog in the process of planning this recipe because it seems to disappear from our fridge quickly. ha! To make this ice cream I used my KitchenAid mixer ice cream maker attachment. I love condensing kitchen appliances, especially ones that aren’t used often, so this ice cream maker attachment is totally my jam. It has worked perfectly the 5 times I’ve used it over the last 5 years…
I let the ice cream process for about 30 minutes, it was nice and thick and creamy but still wasn’t quite as hard as I normally like my ice cream. I divided the ice cream between 2 pint containers and placed them in the freezer, after a few hours it hardened and became the consistency of ice cream you would buy from the store.
