Fresh Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Have you ever been Blackberry picking? 
It is a trying, painful job. But oh so worth it! 
I have a neighbor who has these growing 
along side his fence. 
So of course I asked if I could pick some.
*Country folk are a very sharing kind of people!* 
Just look at the size of these berries.
Fresh picked Blackberries!
I wanted to make something special using these juicy berries. With it being so hot and humid these past few days, Ice Cream came to mind! You just can't beat the taste of Homemade Ice Cream. This recipe is by far the best.
Homemade Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
 Start by placing the mixing bowl portion of your Ice Cream maker into the freezer to chill while you prepare. (you will keep it in there over night)
 
Fresh Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
 
In a large sauce pan stir together and bring to a boil the following:
3 C. Sugar
1 (3.4 oz.)Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1/8 tsp. Salt
8 C. Whole Milk

Stirring constantly bring to a medium boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a small bowl beat together:
4 lg. Eggs
1 TBSP. Vanilla

Take 1 C. of the hot milk mixture, slowly pour into the eggs and whisk together.
Then whisk the egg mixture into the hot milk. 
(you are tempering the eggs so they wont "cook" and become scrambled)
Return back to heat stirring until it comes to a med. boil once again. Cook for another 2 minutes. Turn off heat.

Now you will Whisk in (2) 8 oz. pkg. of softened Cream Cheese. 
Once blended, place the mixture into a Ice Bath to help cool quickly.
Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of custard preventing a "skin" to form.
Let chill overnight.
In a separate bowl place 3 C. of the fresh rinsed Blackberries along with
2 C. Heavy Whipping Cream. You will chill this over night as well.

Now the next morning stir together the berries & cream into the custard.
Place into your chilled ice cream bowl and prepare as directed on your ice cream maker. *Mine only took 30 minutes. then I transferred the ice cream into a bowl to freeze for later. You won't believe how good this is.

To "cool" Summer night's!

Hi Lark,
We have had a fair blackberry harvest this year, with the heat and lack of rain it has cut down our production,but we do have just enough for me to try this wonderful recipe of yours. It looks delicious.
Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week. Have a great week end!
