Cream Cheese Ice Cream

Community Recipe from


  • 3 cup(s) half-and-half
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 (8oz) package(s) cream cheese softened
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract


  1. 1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large, heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 8 to 10 minutes, or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat, and whisk in cream cheese and vanilla bean paste or extract until cheese is melted. Cool completely, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Place plastic wrap directly on mixture to prevent a film from forming, and chill 8 to 24 hours.
  2. 2. Pour mixture into freezer container of a 1 1/2 quart electric ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer ice cream to an air tight container. Freeze 4 hours before serving.
