Rich and creamy, this Cookies and Cream Ice Cream recipe is always a perfect summer treat!

Cookies and cream has always been one of my very favorite ice cream flavors. This recipe is extra rich and creamy, and I simply adore it! It does have a custard base, so you have to cook it first, but the silky texture makes it worth it. It is absolutely delicious!

Recipe for rich and creamy cookies and cream ice cream. A perfect summer treat!
I have one of these ice cream makers and I love it! You do not need to use ice, you just freeze the canister ahead of time. Genius! It makes about a quart of ice cream which is perfect for my family. The problem is that we love having people over for homemade ice cream in the summer. One quart isn’t really enough to be shared. So I have been looking for an additional canister to buy. That way I could make 2 batches one right after another. I got really lucky and found an almost new one at my local thrift store. Perfect!

 So, in honor of my new ice cream maker, of course I had to make some homemade ice cream. I started with the same base I use for my Peppermint Ice Cream, I just tweaked it a little. This is soooo good, you really must try it. Yum! Make sure you leave large chunks of oreos, because that is the best part about cookies and cream ice cream! If you love classic Oreo Ice Cream, you have got to try this homemade version!

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

1 cup milk
4 egg yolks, well beaten
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp vanilla
2 cups cream
1 1/2 cups broken Oreos

Combine milk, egg yolks, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Whisk together till blended well. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, till mixture barely comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Cover and chill till cold. (I usually put the pan in a sinkful of ice water to speed the process.) Stir in vanilla and cream. Freeze in ice cream freezer according to manufacture instructions. Stir in Oreo pieces and place in an airtight container in the freezer to harden for 1-2 hours.

  1. Woman, between this and the Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Ice Cream recipe, you are adding a few pounds to the family this summer. SO good! We used Paul Newman “Oreo” with peanut butter filling. Thanks!
