My Youngest has declared that he really doesn't like eating Oreos, I know kind of odd for a kid to say that about a cookie almost everyone likes... so, when he asked me to make Cookies and Cream ice cream I was a bit surprised.
It seems that Oreos are perfectly ok if they are crushed and added to creamy vanilla ice cream. Whatever way you think you like Oreos... you will simply love crunch they add to this ice cream!
With crushed Oreos throughout each scoop, you won't be left wanting if you love Cookies and Cream!
Here are some other ideas for using that package of Oreos that we all keep in the pantry:
Two Peas and Their Pod: Oreo White Chocolate Pudding Cookies
Kevin & Amanda: Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n' Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars
Brown Eyed Baker: Oreo Cheesecake Cookies
Recipegirl: Oreo and Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
- 9 large egg yolks
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 12 Oreo cookies, crushed into bite-size pieces
- In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and 2/3 cup of sugar; whisk to combine.
- Add remaining 1/3 cup sugar, milk, heavy cream and vanilla bean paste to a large sauce pan; bring to a full boil and then remove from heat.
- Add about 1 cup of the milk mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly to temper the eggs. Add this mixture back to the sauce pan, then add the salt and whisk until thoroughly combined.
- Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until cool, about 3-4 hours.
- Add milk mixture to ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer instructions.
- Pour churned ice cream into container that you'll be freezing it in, then add the crushed Oreos and fold in to distribute evenly. Freeze until firm.
