Cinnamon Ice Cream with Strawberries

I LOVED this ice cream! When I used to go to Marble Slab in Texas, I would get cinnamon ice cream and have them fold fresh strawberries into it. It reminds me of eating strawberries dipped into a yummy fruit dip!

Cinnamon Ice Cream with Strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup half and half
2 eggs beaten
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup sliced strawberries
Stir together half and half and sugar. Heat over medium heat until it begins to simmer then removed from heat.
Whisk eggs
Slowly begin to pour half of the hot milk into the eggs while whisking, to prevent them from scrambling.

Slowly stir the egg mixture back into the milk mixture, stirring the whole time.
Add whip cream to the mixture.
Turn on the heat to medium and stir constantly for a few minutes, until the mixture coats the back of a metal spoon. 
Its ready!
Pour into a mixing bowl. Stir in the cinnamon and the vanilla extract.
It took some good whisking to incorporate all of the cinnamon.
Place in the fridge until cooled.
Pour cooled cream into your ice cream maker and turn it on until it is done.

Slice strawberries.

Place half of the ice cream into a tupperware. 
Top with half of the strawberries, then repeat. Stir slightly. Freeze for 3 hours to firm it up.
It is sooooo yummy!
