Cheesecake Ice Cream

This is positively the richest ice cream I have ever tasted! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I might actually reduce the amount of cream cheese next time... All the same, it's DELICIOUS!

12 oz cream cheese
1 C sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ C mascarpone
1 C whole milk
2 tsp vanilla
¼ C sour cream

Blend cream cheese, sugar and salt until very smooth and creamy. Add mascarpone, stirring until thoroughly combined. Slowly mix in the milk and vanilla beating until very smooth. Fold in sour cream. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours.

Pour mixture into ice cream maker bowl and let mix until thickened, 15-20 minutes. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer to an airtight container and return to freezer for 1-2 hours.

This is the basic recipe, but I think of mixing in raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, chocolate...

Looks like the ice cream maker has been used TWICE already :). All your entries are so beautiful. This is a great way to 'save' recipes.
