Mint Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Mint Cookies & Cream Ice Cream made with an ice cream maker - it's my two favorite flavors married together #icecream #Oreo #dessert #recipe

Last year for my birthday, I got an ice cream maker and Ben & Jerry's cookbook from Nick. Ecstatic doesn't even begin to describe how I felt. I love ice cream and have wanted the attachment for my KitchenAid for FOREVER. I just didn't want to spend the money.

Now that the weather is warm again, I have made a few batches. This batch happened to be the first one I made in my ice cream maker [last September]. Ben & Jerry say that it was one of their best selling flavors and I know exactly why. Mint [chocolate chip] ice cream is unbelievable and one of my all-time favorites and cookies and cream ice cream is not too far behind. I've been known to polish off way more than I should way faster than I should of this Oreo-y goodness! :)

What you need:
  • Ice Cream Maker
  • 2/3 cup chopped Oreos

Directions:
  1. Refrigerate chopped cookies until ready to use.
  2. Whisk eggs in a bowl for about 1 to 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Add sugar little by little, whisking until blended. Whisk about a minute after blended completely.
  4. Pour in cream and milk, continue whisking until blended.
  5. Add peppermint extra and whisk once more until blended.
  6. Transfer to ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions. I have the attachment for the KitchenAid, so I mix mine for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  7. In the last two minutes, add cookies.
  8. Transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze until desired consistency is reached.
