This is the base that I use whenever the recipes call for a sweet cream base... Usually the recipes will tell you exactly how to make the ice cream but at times you will need this additional base recipe...
Sweet Cream Base
(recipe found in Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Desserts Book)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk
Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
