Simple Butter Pecan Ice Cream Recipe

1/3 cup sugar
1/3 packed cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch salt
1 cup milk, whole or reduced fat
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup finely chopped pecans (4 ounces)
1/8 teaspoon salt

In medium bowl (use a 2-quart glass measure to make pouring into the machine easier), whisk together sugars, vanilla, salt and milk until sugars are dissolved. Stir in heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

At least 1 hour before making ice cream, melt butter in small skillet over medium-low heat. Add pecans and salt, and cook, stirring frequently, until pecans are toasted, about 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.

Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Mix until thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes. With machine still running, pour toasted pecans through spout and let mix in completely, up to 5 minutes.
