Oreo Ice Cream

Cookies N Cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
Smashed up favorite cookies.

1. Combine eggs & sugar, whisking until combines.
2. Heat milk and vanilla in a sauce pan til just before boiling.
3. Add to egg mixture SLOWLY! and continuously whisking (this prevents scrambled eggs)
4. Heat milk/egg mixture until thick & custard-y
5. While milk/egg is thickening whip the heavy cream until light and fluffy
6. pour custard into whipping cream and fold gently
7. pour into ice cream makerfor 30 minutes. About 20 minutes in add your favorite crushed cookies

Overall: So this is most certainly NOT how my sister and I made it. The book we were reading from had an akward layout in the directions for the ice cream so we completely missed the whipping cream step, instead assuming the "milk" meant cream + milk mixture. Because of this the custard was not very thick and our ice cream was more of an Iced milk. Also, we added the oreos (our cookie of choice) before the putting the mixture in the ice cream maker. The only down side to that step was turning the ice cream an ugly unappetizing gray color.

That all being said, it tasted fine. I would more or less start with a vanilla base and add cookies at the end next time. Also, the whole cooking eggs is different from the last ice cream we made. I won't really try this recipe again...

Sorry to point this out but...You wrote "pour into ice cream mixture for 30 minutes" - you mean ice cream maker, right?

I never make ice cream using eggs - I just can't be bothered. My standard recipe is

1 cup whole milk
2 cups whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar

Then whatever flavouring.

I know the egg one is richer & probably more complex in flavour, though.

Yeah thank you I'll fix that. Was spacing out I guess...

I know it was from some weird Ice Cream book. THey had TONS of recipes but a lot were really weird or gourmet and I wouldn't want to eat them

I think I may be too lazy to do this...but it looks sounds great! Couldn't go for the avocodo or green tea ice cream though. Love strawberry...mmmm
