Kevin and Amanda's No Ice Cream Machine Required Recipe:
Cinnamon Ice Cream:
  • 2 cups heavy cream 1 (14 oz.) Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter , browned and cooled
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Chai Snickerdoodles:
  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together on medium in a mixer fixed with the paddle attachment until fluffy and pale.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping after each addition. Add the vanilla.
  4. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients, but do not overmix. Refrigerate dough for 30 min.
Chai sugar:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix sugar mixture in a separate bowl.
  3. Roll dough (I used a hefty tablespoon for each ball) into sugar mixture and placed on a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to a baking rack.
  5. Before making the sandwiches, I froze the cookies (for about 15 min)to ensure that they would be sturdy enough to put ice cream on.

  7. As much as I love my ice cream maker, sometimes I just do not have the room in my freezer to store the bowl. This was one of those days. I had recently seen a post on Kevin and Amanda about a no ice cream maker required recipe. It was super easy and very good. If you are going to make the cookie sandwiches like I did, I would suggest making the ice cream a day ahead of time so that it has time to thoroughly freeze.
