Velvety butter ice cream.


  • 1 quart heavy whipping cream
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 ounce butter extract
  • 1 cup butter , melted
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoons kosher salt , I used closer to 2 because I like well salted butter


  1. Whip together all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Set into the refrigerator until you are ready to make your ice cream.
  2. Prepare your ice cream maker, which can take up to 24 hours for proper freezing.
  3. Pour all ingredients into ice cream maker and turn on. Let the machine do the work! You should have velvety butter ice cream in about 30 minutes. 
  4. Spoon into an air tight container and place in the freezer to harden to ice cream consistency. Butter ice cream can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
