The classics of all classics. One of my favourite ice cream flavour since I was a kid. Who can resist a good cookies and cream ice cream? I mentioned before that I like my ice cream with a crunch. Oreos cookies and ice cream just seem like a perfect marriage.
Having an ice cream maker almost makes me feel like a kid again. Seeing the ice cream whiz into a lovely creamy blob. Crunching the oreos and mixing it into it. Anxiously waiting to see if it sets in the freezer... ah....
Rubbing my hands in glee and wondering what other types of ice-cream can I make!
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
1 cup of cream
1 cup of full cream milk
1/4 cup of organic coconut sugar (or sugar)
2 egg yolks
1 packet of oreos cookies crushed
Freeze ice cream bowl overnight.
In a saucepan, simmer cream, milk and sugar. When you can see some of the bubbles on the surface, pour egg yolk in slowly. Continue to whisk while you do this. Simmer till it coats the back of your spoon and you can draw a line across without the line closing in.
Cool and fridge it for 1 hr or so or cool it rapidly through freezer for 30 minutes.
Pour into ice cream maker and churn for 20 minutes. Add crush oreos in the last 5 minutes and let it churn. Freeze ice cream overnight.
