Peanut Butter Ice-Cream

Sometimes all you need after a long day is a big scoop of ice-cream.

Peanut Butter Ice-cream was what I had in mind, and whipped it up really quickly!  This was my first time to make this recipe (from my Cuisinart Ice-Cream Maker booklet), the only thing I would change is next time, buy some mini reeses peanut butter cups and throw them in! 

You'll need:
1 cup + 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (I used Peter Pan Reduced Fat)
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk (I used 1%, but the higher the fat the thicker the icecream)
2 cups of heavy cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

You'll need to:
1. Mix the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl until well mixed.
2. Add milk and the mix until sugar has dissolved. Then add the whipping cream and vanilla.
3. Pour into ice-cream maker and mix for 25-30 minutes. 
4. Ta-da!
