Cinnamon Toast Ice Cream
Beat eggs well and set aside. Place milk, remaining 1 ¼-cups sugar and dash salt in saucepan. Over medium heat, heat milk and sugar until almost ready to boil. Stirring eggs, slowly pour approximately ¼ the hot milk mixture into beaten eggs. Pour warmed eggs back into remaining hot milk. Stirring constantly, continue to cook milk and eggs until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon (don’t boil). Remove from heat; stir in cream, vanilla and remaining 2-teaspoons cinnamon; cover and cool completely. Hasten cooling by placing pan in ice bath (larger bowl filled with ice and cold water). NOTE - custard may be prepared and refrigerated up to 3-days in advance.
Stir custard, pour mixture into ice cream freezer and follow manufacturer's directions to freeze. Freeze until almost reaches desired consistency, fold-in crumbled cinnamon and sugar. Place ice cream in freezer container and freeze until solid.
