Copycat Recipes: Ben & Jerry's Butter Pecan Ice Cream!

½ cup butter (do not substitute)

1 cup pecan halves 

½ tsp salt 

2 large eggs 

¾ cup sugar 

2 cups heavy cream, or whipping cream 

1 cup milk 

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over low heat. 

Add the pecans and salt and saute, stirring constantly, until the pecans start to turn brown. 

Drain the butter into a small bowl. Transfer the pecans to another bowl and let cool. 

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. 

Pour in the cream and milk, and whisk to blend. Add the melted butter and blend. 

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's directions. 

After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the pecans, then continue freezing until done. 

Makes 1 quart
