Ice Cream

Ice Cream

3 C Rich's Whipped Topping
1 C water
3/4 C sugar
1 tsp salt
2-3 tsp vanilla (or you can use other flavorings)
2-3 drops yellow food coloring

Combine the water and Rich's together. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir with a spoon UNTIL THE SUGAR IS DISSOLVED. Using a mixer, whip all ingredients for about a minute and 1/2 ( this makes the texture much better). Pour the mixture in a freezer cylinder and follow the directions for your particular cylinder.

I have to add that all of this wouldn't fit into our cylinder but I put the rest in a glass pan and froze it with success. This is by far the creamiest recipe I've found for ice cream.
