Krispy Kreme Ice Cream

2 T. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
5 Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts

Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk and cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Whisk egg yolk until slightly thickened. Gradually whisk about 1 cup hot cream mixture into yolk. Add yolk mixture to remaining cream mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in vanilla bean paste. Cool 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Place plastic wrap directly on cream mixture and chill 8 to 24 hours.
Chop Krispy Kreme doughnuts into small pieces. Stir 1/4 of the chopped doughnuts into the cream mixture. Pour mixture into freezer container of a 1 1/2 qt. electric ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Once the ice cream is set, stir in remaining Krispy Kreme doughnuts and put in freezer to harden.
