From Scratch: Peanut Butter Ice Cream

OK, this ice cream is to die for! I absolutely love it!

Adapted from How to be a Domestic Goddess

2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1 t. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped unsalted, dry roasted peanuts
5 Reese's Peanut Butter Holiday shapes (trees, hearts, eggs), chopped into small pieces (if you can't find these, you can use regular peanut butter cups)

In medium bowl, combine eggs and sugar with whisk. Add cream and milk and whisk until smooth. Add PB and whisk until smooth. Place in ice cream maker and freeze according to machine directions until almost frozen. 5 minutes before done (or as frozen as it will get with the ice cream maker) add peanuts and PB cups. Place in airtight plastic container in freezer for at least 30-45 minutes before serving, to firm up. And the most important part... enjoy!

Note: The base to this ice cream is derived from Ben & Jerry's ice cream recipe book. You can use these amounts of eggs, sugar, cream and milk for any ice cream base that you want to make! Be creative! (Or go to Coldstone and get some ideas there!)
