I bring you a totally-easy-no-churn-3-ingredient-homemade ice cream recipe.

I can’t take the credit. I didn’t come up with this technique. Luckily, the beautiful and talented Nigella Lawson is very generous in what she shares with the world.

Now that I have this methods in my bag of tricks, I just may make all my ice cream at home from now on. Three ingredients go into the mixer, spend some time getting whisked around, and then go into the freezer. That’s it – finito – let’s eat! It’s amazing!

I decided to pair this silky smooth ice cream with some good ol’ fashion salted chocolate chip cookies. And Oh My were they good!

  4. Add the flour in about four different batches and mix until incorporated.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
