  4. Return the combined mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  7. Once chilled, churn the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
