TWD: Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream


Okay, so this week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick was actually vanilla ice cream, but I couldn't resist adding the cookies to create my very favorite ice cream - cookies 'n cream. The vanilla ice cream was selected this week by Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu. Click the link to get the recipe and see her fabulous pictures, which put the ones I took in under three minutes to shame!


This ice cream came together really easily and was surprisingly quick to make. I guess I'm getting good at this ice cream making thing. I followed the recipe exactly, and added about 10 crushed cookies during the last five minutes of its churning in the ice cream maker. My son actually helped me add the cookies (and ate a few) and loved watching the ice cream churning around. Look at him sitting there with his spoon, waiting to get a taste!


Overall, it tasted great and everyone enjoyed it. The recipe makes for a great base and just about anything can be added. Maybe next time I'll try cookie dough... yum!

Sounds good! I should have added something to mine.

The picture of your son waiting with his spoon is too cute!

What a good kitchen helper, so cute! I finished my vanilla for TWD and just bought sandwich cookies so I could make cookies and cream, always a great combo!

I love the photo with your son - what anticipation!! Looks like a great recipe. I just got into making ice cream this summer, so I'll have to give this one a try.
