a really good VANILLA ICE CREAM recipe

Here's a really good, very rich, kind of expensive ingredient purchase, but well worth it ice-cream recipe, from Crooks Corner.

Whisk 3/4 C sugar with 8 egg yolks.
Scald 1 3/4 C half-and-half with 1 split vanilla bean.  When hot, not boiling, whisk slowly into eggs.  Put mixture on top of a double boiler and stir to thicken.  Custard should coat back of a spoon.  Lower heat and add 2 T butter.  Turn off heat and add 2 more T butter.  Add 1 1/2 C cream, mix and strain.  Chill and churn in ice-cream maker.
