Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Mascarpone can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Beat egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar in a bowl until mixture is pale yellow and frothy, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Warm cream and milk in a heavy, large saucepan over medium-low heat to 175°F. Stir in remaining sugar until dissolved.
  3. Whisk 1/3 cup hot cream mixture into egg mixture. Return all to saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until cream mixture reaches 160°F and is just thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 5-10 minutes. (Do not boil.) Remove from the heat.
  4. Pour custard through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl. Whisk in the mascarpone, vanilla bean seeds, vanilla and salt until smooth. Place bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice water. Stir until custard has cooled to room temperature, about 2-4 minutes. Remove from the ice water. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Pour custard into an ice cream maker, two-thirds full. Freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Refrigerate any remaining custard mixture until ready to freeze.
  6. Spoon ice cream into freezer containers. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Repeat with any remaining custard.
