Lawson Family Ice Cream

Lawson Family Ice Cream

My family devours this no-fail, totally-fabulous homemade, vanilla ice cream every time we make it! This includes my aunts, uncles, cousins, and their kids...we all use the same recipe, and we all love it.

I'm not sure where my mom found it or when she typed it up to create a recipe card, but it's the only homemade ice cream recipe we've ever used.

I know you will enjoy it, too 🍦

Lawson Family Ice Cream Recipe Card



  • 1 can Eagle Brand Milk
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • Milk


  1. Beat eggs one at a time
  2. Combine eggs and sugar, continue beating
  3. Then add Eagle Brand Milk and mix well
  4. Pour in canister for your ice cream freezer
  5. Add milk to canister’s fill line (no more than 3/4 full)
  6. Follow the directions in your ice cream freezer to finish

We love adding fresh, diced peaches, but most any fruit will taste great if you’d like to add a little something special to your ice cream…

  • For Fresh Fruit: add 1/4 cup more sugar depending on fruit tartness
  • For Frozen Fruit: no more sugar is needed

 With love and hugs,
