Tasty Tuesdays

Welcome back to Tasty Tuesdays! Today I am featuring easy dessert recipes both here and over at New Mommy Rant...
Below is a recipe I actually haven't tried making yet but really, really want to.. I thought I'd share this easy recipe with you!
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
In a medium saucepan, mix milk and cream. Warm until foam forms around the edges. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks, vanilla, and sugar until frothy. Gradually pour the warm milk into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Return mixture to saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the mixture gels slightly and coats the back of the spoon. If small egg lumps begin to show, remove from heat immediately.
Pour the mixture through a sieve or fine strainer into a bowl. Cover, and chill for several hours or overnight.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a sealed container, and freeze until firm. If the gelato is too firm, place it in the refrigerator until it reaches the desired consistency.
Please stop on back and let me know if you decide to make this!! I will post sometime soon with my review on how this came out..
Doesn't it sound yummy!!
