Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream is definitely one of my favorite traditional ice cream flavors.  It is incredibly easy to make and much better than anything you find at the grocery store.  You are in complete control of the cookie to ice cream ratio, so there will never be the feeling of disappointment that comes with opening that store bought ice cream container and finding that it looks more like plain vanilla than cookies ‘n cream.  With this recipe you will have plenty of cookies in every single spoonful; 1:1 is the perfect ratio in my opinion.

Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream

The Ice Cream
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coconut rum

The Cookies
3 cups chocolate sandwich cookies, chopped

Making the Ice Cream
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and rum until sugar has dissolved.  Pour ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and run the machine for about 25-30 minutes or until the ice cream is formed.  Place ice cream in the freezer to finish freezing.

After about an hour, remove ice cream from freezer and fold in chopped cookies.  Return ice cream to freezer.  Once firm, scoop ice cream and enjoy!
