1 2-inch piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise

1/2 Cup sugar
2 Tbs vanilla extract

Directions:
Directions:
Combine cream and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add vanilla bean and heat until mixture almost boils, about 5-8 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Meanwhile beat yolks, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until light yellow and smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Add 4 Tbs hot cream/milk mixture and stir until combined. Gradually add egg yolk mixture to warm cream mixture, stirring continuously to prevent the eggs from curdling. Cook over low heat until slightly thickened and mixture coats the back of a spoon, about 3-4 minutes. Cool completely. (Overnight in the refrigerator or in an ice bath for about 30 minutes.) When cool, scrape seeds from vanilla bean and add to ice cream mixture. Discard bean shell. Stir until well combined. Pour into freezer bowl, turn the machine on and let mix until mixture thickens, about 20-25 minutes. If desired, transfer ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer until firm, about 2 hours.
