COOKIES AND CREAM HOMEMADE ICE CREAM
The following homemade ice cream recipe is sinfully good. It makes a very rich vanilla custard ice cream base if you want to leave out the cookies.
This works out perfectly without an ice cream maker, just give it a good stir every 30 minutes until frozen. If you don't have a ice cream maker just use this tip.
- 2-1/2 cups half and half cream
- 8 egg yolks
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 TBS plus 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
Heat the half and half until very hot (DO NOT BOIL) stirring often. Whisk the yolks and sugar until blended and slightly thickened. Add SLOWLY to the hot half and half.
Now add this mixture to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until steamy and bubbles form around the edge; stirring constantly. Do not boil.
Once mixture is hot, pour into a large bowl and stir in whipping cream, vanilla and salt. Cover and chill thoroughly. Add to your ice cream maker per manufacturer's instructions; then add the crushed Oreos during the last stage of freezing.
