Homemade Vanilla or Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

I had extra whipping cream in my fridge from the chocolate ice cream we made last week, so we had to make more ice cream tonight.  I'm glad we did, because it sure was yummy.
We used the recipe for Old Fashioned Vanilla that was inside my ice cream maker owner's guide, then we added chopped up Oreos at the end to make it Cookies & Cream Ice Cream.  There are lots of other mix-ins that I'd love to try.  Or just plan vanilla would be yummy too.  

Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream
recipe from Rival (model 8151) Electric Ice Cream Maker Owner's Guide
makes 1 1/2 quarts

3/4 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 3/4 c. whole milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. whipping cream
1 T. pure vanilla extract

Combine sugar, salt and milk in saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture almost boils.  Reduce heat to low.

Gradually stir about 1/2 c. of hot milk into the beaten eggs.  Add eggs to remaining hot mixture.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Combine whipping cream, vanilla and chilled mixture, stirring with a wire whisk to combine.

Pour into canister and freeze according to ice cream maker instructions.

To make Cookies & Cream Ice Cream:  add 1/2 c. of chopped/crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies during the last 5 minutes of freezing.
