A lovely rich French custard cream ice, beautiful with Benedictine, but experiment with other liqueurs as available.
Put egg yolks, sugar and vanilla into the top half of a double boiler and beat with a wooden spoon until pale and creamy.
Heat milk almost to boiling point then stir, by degrees, into the yolk mixture.
Cook over near boiling water, stirring constantly, until custard thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon.
Cool, stirring now and then.
When cold stir in the Benedictine and the lightly whipped cream.
Pour into chilled ice tray and freeze until firm.
