Have you ever had a craving for homemade ice cream, but just couldn’t summon the willpower to drag out a sauce pan and make the custard base? We have four words (and a hyphen) for you: Philadelphia-Style Ice Cream.

This style of ice cream is made only from cream, sugar, and any flavorings – no eggs required! All you have to do in order to make it is mix everything together, churn, and freeze. Some recipes have you heat the milk a bit to make sure the sugar is dissolved, but just as many recipes skip this and move straight to churning

Because there are no eggs, the flavor of the cream really takes center stage. The ice cream is delicate-tasting and surprisingly smooth.

Here are a few Philadelphia-style ice cream recipes to try!
