Magic Vanilla Ice Cream

I got this recipe off the internet from Cook' last August and finally got around to trying it yesterday.  I wish I hadn't waited so long!  It sounds impossible, but it turned out great!  And best of all, you don't have to own an ice cream maker to make it.  I guess that's what makes it magic :). 

Magic Vanilla Ice Cream

1/2 Cup sweetened condensed milk
1 ounce white chocolate chips (see note)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Pinch salt
1/4 Cup sour cream
1-1/4 Cups cold heavy cream

1.  Make Base:  microwave sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate in large bowl until chocolate melts, stirring halfway, about 30 seconds.  Let cool.  Stir in vanilla, salt, and sour cream.
2.  Whip Cream:  with electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip heavy cream to soft peaks, about 2 minutes.  Whisk one-third of whipped cream into white chocolate mixture.  Fold remaining whipped cream into white chocolate mixture until incorporated.
3.  Freeze:  place in airtight container and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours or up to 2 weeks.  Serve.  Makes 1 quart.

Note:  shop carefully.  White chocolate varies greatly in quality.  We like Guittard Choc-O-Lait Chips or Ghirardelli Classic White Chips.  If you use a bar instead of chips, chop it fine before melting it in step 1.  If you plan to store ice cream for more than a few days, place plastic wrap directly on its surface before you freeze it.

Remember the hot fudge sauce recipe from last June?  Oh yeah.  A match made in heaven.
