Homemade Ice Cream and THE BEST Strawberry Glaze You'll Ever Taste

For the love of all that is sweet and tasty, make this glaze.

It was amazing and delicious and once I made it I sat there with a spoon and shamelessly ate it out of the bowl. I sunk to new lows, it was that good.

The ice cream is also a winner but was upstaged by the glaze.  Too bad ice cream, maybe someday you'll get the praise you deserve.

So go ahead, do yourself a favor. Make the strawberry glaze. Put it on strawberry shortcake, on ice cream, on a spoon, on waffles, on toast...

As you can tell, I kind of liked it ok.


The Best Strawberry Glaze You'll Ever Have

  • 4-6 small to medium strawberries
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbs cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Mash up the strawberries. If you don't like chunks purify them in a food processor or blender. I like the chunks.
  2. Put the strawberries and their juice in a bowl and add the powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla. Blend until a runny-syrupy consistency is reached.
  3. Enjoy.

Not-the-least-bit-Boring Vanilla Ice Cream

Combine and mix in a bowl:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups cream
Then add:
  • 3 cups whole milk
Blend all ingredients together. Can be refrigerated for a few hours, over night or whatever. Or, put it in the ice cream maker right away.  Blend to ice cream makers instructions.
