Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

It's been a while since I've posted an ice cream recipe.  Oh, don't get me wrong, I have made ice cream since that last time, I just haven't  gotten a good picture of it or made anything different.  I thought it was about time to change that, though, especially since the rest of the country is starting to cool down.  I wanted to get this in before the summer is over for most of you.  Although we are in no danger of that happening any time soon around here.  The desert is still hot and dry and it doesn't feel like fall is around the corner at all!  Oh well.. that's why there is ice cream, right?  To help us forget (at least for a short time) how hot it really is!

I normally don't comment on desserts but this looks delicious - like the Oreo Blizzards I used to enjoy at Dairy Queen. I know I'd still love one but would rather spend my calories on another serving of something savory.

These are great pictures! Ice cream is so, so hard to photograph. Of course, now I want ice cream for breakfast ... you do this to me every day! said...

Can this be made without an ice ceam maker?

Jenn said...

Stephen - yes, I believe this could easily be made without a maker. Check out this post from David Lebovitz for more details:

It's been way too long since I've made ice cream.

So I'm reading along in a post about ice cream and I see the word "desert" and my mind quickly said, "oh, she misspelled dessert" just from context. Hilarious how the mind works.

We just got an ice cream maker for the Kitchenaid and this looks like an awesome candidate for the next batch. It looks delicious, Jenn! I printed out a copy for the weekend. Thanks!
