Homemade MoonPie Ice Cream


1 quart whipping cream
1 quart plus 3 cups whole milk
12 egg yolks
4 tablespoons vanilla
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons salt
4 to 8 MoonPies


Scald milk in a large 6 quart saucepan. In large bowl, beat together egg yolks and salt. Add 3 cups of the hot milk to the egg yolks slowly while stirring constantly. Return this mixture to the milk in the pan. Add sugar and keep stirring while cooking at medium heat. When mixture coats the spoon or just starts to boil, remove from heat. In most cases, the mix will be lumpy. Strain out the lumps as you pour into freezer canister; add chopped MoonPies and freeze.
