Speedy Ice Cream Recipe

From her home in Bradley, California, Cindy Marshall sends this fun "hands-on" recipe that lets kids create their own cool ice cream. "Every child I prepare this with loves making and eating it," she writes. "It doesn't leave a mess to clean and keeps the children smiling and giggling."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups coarsely crushed ice cubes
  • 3/4 cup salt


  • 1. In a small resealable plastic bag, combine the cream, sugar and vanilla. Press out air and seal.
  • 2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the ice and salt; add the sealed small bag. Seal the large bag; place in another large resealable plastic bag and seal. Shake and knead for 5-7 minutes or until cream mixture is thickened. Serve immediately or freeze. Yield: 1 cup.
