Method

  1. To prepare the ice cream, pour the milk in a saucepan and add the sugar.
  2. Add the egg yolk and beat with a balloon whisk.
  3. Open the vanilla pod, remove the seeds from inside, then add to the mixture.
  4. Heat to 85°C mixing constantly, then turn off the heat and remove the vanilla pod from the mixture.
  5. Once it has cooled down, put it in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Before putting the mixture into the ice cream maker, place it in the freezer until it is very cold but still liquid.
  6. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and let it run until you have a thick and creamy ice cream.
Chop the Cantuccini in a blender, keeping  4 whole for decoration.
  7. Mix the Cantuccini crumbs into the cream gelato and place it in the freezer until it's time to serve it.
  8. Prepare the ice cream bowls with three scoops of Cantuccini ice cream and a few pieces of Cantuccini as decoration.
