Homemade Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Get ready for the best homemade ice cream EVER!!!!!
It's buttery. It's nutty. It's creamy. It's sweet and then it's salty. It is soooo good! You'll need to make a double batch.

We first had this at my oldest brother Jason's house. His wife Rebecca found a Ben & Jerry's ice cream recipe book. And this is the recipe we tried. It has become my favorite homemade ice cream. Enjoy!

Ben & Jerry's Butter Pecan Ice Cream
1/2 c butter
1 c pecans
1/2 t salt
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar
2 c whipping cream
1 c milk

Melt butter in a heavy skillet. Add pecans and salt. Saute, stirring constantly until pecans turn brown. Don't burn!
Drain butter into small bowl and transfer pecans to another bowl to cool.

Whisk eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk the sugar a ltlle at a time until completely blended. Add shipping cream and milk. Add the melted butter.

Transfer mixture to ice ceram maker and freeze following your maker's instructions.

Add the pecans about 2 minutes before the ice cream is done.

Makes 1 quart.

(We substituted some half-n-half and milk because we didn't have enough cream and it was still really good!)
