How To Make Ice Cream: On a Baking Steel

I  scream! You scream!  We all scream for ice cream-right?!  Well, I have a son with both nut and egg allergies, so enjoying ice cream on the go, can sometimes be a bit of a challenge.  Wanting him to experience a flavor beyond basic vanilla, it was time to get our Baking Steel cold.   Baking Steel is a dream for "mix-in" ice cream!

How to make ice cream.  First, place your clean steel inside the freezer.  With your steel safely "tucked away", take a quick trip to the grocer for your favorite ice cream mix-in ingredients (Remember, the sky's the limit on this one!  Mix-ins are personal, so go crazy!). I decided to make mint chocolate chip so I grabbed Breyer's Natural Vanilla as our base (we'll experiment with making our own this summer), some fresh mint and Enjoy Life's Mega Chocolate Chunks.

After a few hours rest in the freezer, your steel has become an instant cold plate!  Remember, our ultra-conductive Baking Steel stores energy.  We know it stores heat energy but surprise, it stores the cold as well!

When you are ready to roll, remove the steel from the freezer and place it on the counter (with a towel beneath-cold plates are slippery).  Voila-an instant ice-creamery at home!  Now, lets create some mix-in love!
