Ice cream is, and forever will be, a perfect summer pastime. I recently purchased an ice cream maker and it has changed my life! Ice cream is such an easy dessert to make and it comes out so incredibly delicious. I have a long list of flavors to make but I started out with Cookies n’ Cream, a classic.
Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream
Ingredients: 2 cups heavy cream 1 cup whole milk 2/3 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 20 Oreos
Combine cream, milk, sugar and vanilla in a saucepan and heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator or in an ice bath until completely cool.
Place the chocolate sandwich cookies into a gallon size plastic bag. Using a rolling pin or a rubber mallet (my weapon of choice), break up the cookies being sure to leave some larger pieces. Store the cookies in the freezer.
Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is nearly finished freezing, pour the frozen cookie pieces into the machine, and allow to mix thoroughly. (You will still have to stir it up a bit after the machine is done.)
Store in an air tight container and freeze for an additional 2 hours.
