Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

This cookies and cream ice cream was made using the following recipe.

Use a 2 Qt. ice cream maker or cut the recipe in half if using a smaller ice cream maker.


2 1/2 cups whipping cream

2 cups whole milk

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

8 Oreo(R) Cookies crushed

Place Oreo(R) cookies in a zip top plastic bag. Crush with a rolling pin or break up with your hands.
Cookie pieces should not be much bigger than a chocolate chip. Set aside.

Mix together whipping cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla. Make sure sugar dissolves. Freeze according to your ice cream maker instructions.(Usually takes 25 minutes)

During the last 5 minutes of freezing time, add the crushed cookies to the ice cream.

When the ice cream is done, serve immediately, or if you prefer a firmer consistency, transfer to smaller containers. Put in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer and let soften just enough so it is easily scooped.

I have to tell you, when we first made this, we had some store bought cookies and cream ice cream in our freezer.
So, we did a taste test between our homemade version and the one from the store.

Guess which one was better.

OURS! I could hardly believe it!

Speaking of taste tests, at you can get reviews of new flavors of your favorite ice cream brands.
The reviews are well written and very entertaining.
