Ingredients

Ice Cream
2 c. whole milk
1½ c. brown sugar
4 egg yolks
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 c. half-and-half
2 c. whipping cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Candied Butter Pecans
1 c. pecans
⅓ c. sugar
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
Directions

Prepare Ice Cream: In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, brown sugar, egg yolks, and salt. Place pan over medium-high heat until mixture reaches a simmer. Lower heat to medium and whisk mixture for 5 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Strain mixture into a large bowl and whisk in butter until combined; then incorporate half-and-half, cream, and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
Prepare Candied Butter Pecans: In a heavy skillet over medium heat, combine pecans, sugar, and butter, stirring constantly for about 6 minutes or until sugar has melted and browned. Remove from heat; spread nuts on foil. Once nuts have cooled, break into bite-size pieces and reserve.
Pour ice cream mixture into ice-cream maker; process according to manufacturer instructions. Once ice cream's made, stir in reserved pecans.
