1 vanilla bean
1 quart milk
14 ounces sugar
12 egg yolks
13 ounces sour cream
12 ounces Killer Pecans, rough chopped



  1. Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise then scrape out the insides. Add the milk, the inside and the skin of the vanilla bean into a large pot. Bring to a boil.
  2. While the milk is heating, whip the eggs and sugar on high speed in an electric mixer with the whip attachment. Whip until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Once the milk has reached a boil, reduce the mixer speed to slow then pour the hot milk over the eggs, mix slowly until the mixture cools. Scrape the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula to ensure everything is well mixed.
  4. Once the mixture has cooled to room temperature, mix in the sour cream.
  5. Freeze according to the ice cream maker’s manufacturer guidelines. Once the ice cream is frozen, but is still soft, stir in 8 ounces chopped Killer Pecans and place in a freezer or enjoy immediately!
