Easy as Pie - "Ice Cream in a Bag"

Easy as Pie

I'm a writer, not a cook,
but occasionally, I like to get in the kitchen
and make cookies and such,
as long as the recipe isn't too complicated.

I'm not really an ice cream person. If I do eat it, it's definitely better in a cone . . . a sugar cone with sprinkles. I once helped make real ice cream in a bucket with a crank. It was a lot harder that I thought it would be, but the reward was well worth the effort. This recipe is easy and fun for a hot, summer day. Each child can make their own ice cream, adding flavors and colors as they desire.

Ice Cream in a Bag

1 pint-size zipper plastic bag
1 gallon-size zipper plastic bag
1 Tbl. sugar
1/2 cup milk (cream or half&half)
1/4 tsp. vanilla (or other flavoring)
6 Tbl. rock salt
(berries and food coloring, if desired)

Put milk, vanilla, and sugar in the pint-size bag and seal it well.
Fill the gallon bag half full of crushed ice and add the rock salt.
Place the smaller bag inside also and seal it carefully.
Shake until the mixture is ice cream, about 5 minutes.
Remove the pint bag and wipe off the salty water with a damp cloth.
Open carefully and enjoy!
