Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches #IceCreamWeek

A simple recipe for Cookie Dough Ice Cream that lets you cheat a little bit. Or a lot. This is a recipe anyone can make. Mostly because of all the cheating. Hope you get to make this and cheat on your diet just like you cheated on the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 package of refrigerated cookie dough egg free, broken into bits
  • Store bought chocolate chips cookies

Instructions

  • In a stand mixer combine the whole milk and sugar. Whisk on high speed until sugar dissolves. (always start slow so you don't splash liquid all over the place)
  • Add vanilla. Give it a quick whir.
  • Add the heavy cream and salt to the mixer. Whisk until it becomes fluffy and almost whipped cream in texture.
  • Cover the bowl and pop in the fridge for at least an hour, or overnight.
  • Remove and transfer to an ice cream maker.
  • Turn on and churn for about 10 minutes, just until it starts to thicken and harden a bit.
  • Now toss in the broken bits of cookie dough. Keep whisking until they mix into the ice cream.
  • Stop the machine and remove the bowl. Cover and pop in the freezer until ready for it. I find it takes about 2 to 4 hours to harden.
  • If you want to make it easier to form the ice cream sandwiches you can forgo freezing it in the machine. Instead pop it in a shallow 9 x 13 inch casserole dish lined with parchment. Smooth it out and pop in the freezer overnight.
  • Now when you take it out you can cut the ice cream with a biscuit cutter or a glass that's the same size of the cookies you're using.
  • Cut your ice cream and place it between two cookies. Press together.
  • Eat right away or wrap in plastic wrap till you need them.
  • Serve with a big old cookie dough smile!
