“Although this is just plain vanilla ice cream, it will put any ice cream lover over the edge. It is an American style, meaning no eggs, which also means no cooking and a shorter prep time. But don't let the simplicity fool you. The secret to the exceptional vanilla flavor is the Pure Vanilla Bean Powder. Extract does not even come close, that is why I don't bother with mentioning it as a substitution. This is pure vanilla bean that has bean ground into a powder. It can be hard to find so here is the link for the Madecasse, the brand I use: www.madecasse.com”
