Cookies ‘n Cream

As many of you are aware, I recently purchased an ice cream maker. It is possibly the best thing I have purchased in years, and it is truly a device which everyone appreciates. So far, I have made four batches of ice cream, none of which has been your standard vanilla, or chocolate. I have made a killer mint chocolate chip ice cream, a pineapple, angel food cake with frosting, as well as cookies and cream.

As I polled the kids to see what they wanted me to make, they rattled out a handful of ideas, and after seeing Oreo cookies in the pantry, of which I typically do not purchase, they immediately said ‘Cookies and Cream!”.  Done deal. Seeing that I had about ten cookies left in the cookie bag, I decided it would be a perfect match with some vanilla ice cream.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Lets get started.


  • 1 cup of whole milk, cold
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 Oreo cookies, crumbled

As noted in a previous post, freeze the bowl, as it is very important that it is completely frozen. Begin by adding the milk and sugar to a mixing bowl, and do just that, mix with a whisk until all of the sugar dissolves. Add in the vanilla extract, and the heavy cream. Assemble your ice cream maker, and turn it on, adding in your mixture.

Let the mixer spin for at least 30 minutes. Add in the crumbled Oreo cookies about 25 minutes into mixing. Place the bowl back in the freezer for at least an hour, or in my case, overnight. Scoop and and enjoy.

I will admit, and I believe the kids will admit as well, this could have possibly been the best ice cream I have ever had. There was something about the texture, and how course the cookies were crumbled that made this cookies and cream really divine. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Wowowow! This looks so good. I love that there’s no eggs in this recipe. I think you just inspired me to go put my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer!

  2. Great recipe! This is my “go to” recipe for ccokies and cream. Everyone loves it. Also great using low fat milk for a yummy treat for me since I’m watching what I eat. Thank you for the recipe.
