This takes a little bit more time and preparation but the results are amazing! Using an ice cream maker slowly churns the mixture around a frozen barrel making your ice cream extra creamy. You're going to start out by steep milk with sugar, coffee beans, salt, and cream. This will be the base of your frozen treat. Next, temper your egg yolks with the milk mixture. Don't be frightened by tempering; it's much easier than you think and is a great technique that you can use in baking. Once your mixture is heated, chill and process in the ice cream maker. This recipe is sure to make you feel like a pro and is such a crowd-pleaser.
