Recipes: Fudge pie and homemade vanilla ice cream

I got to thinking you might want the homemade ice cream recipe to go along with your Fudge Pie. This is a recipe given to me by Nancy, the pastor's wife at our first official church position (Charles was the youth minister) after seminary, in a small town in Oklahoma. And I think she got the recipe from her mother in law. I've never found a better one!

Ice cream

1 qt half and half
2 c sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

1 gallon of milk (I use 2 percent)

Pour all ingredients, except the gallon of milk into a large bowl and mix with a beater. Pour into ice cream churn. Pour in milk (not skim, but any other kind) to 'fill' line and churn as directed.

Makes 1 1/2 gallons

Fudge Pie

Melt together:
1 stick of margarine or butter
1 square of unsweetened baker's chocolate

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla

Pour into greased pie pan and bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
The texture is crunchy on top, then custard like in the middle.
Serve hot with ice cream.
