Cookies n' Cream


With my sister visiting I knew I wanted to make something she'd love. But I also wanted her to try all the food Seattle has to offer. Therefore I decided upon some ice cream to snack on when they arrived off their plane. It turned out tasty and felt like childhood. We all had a big bowl of ice cream together to ring in their arrival to our apartment and rest before going out to eat some more :)

I used a Jeni's Ice cream base and then added my choice of flavorings to it-

Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream:

2 cups milk
4 tsp cornstarch
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbs. light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbs cream cheese; room temperature
 1 package of oreos; crushed into bits

1     mix 2 tbs milk with the cornstarch in a small bowl
2     in another medium bowl mix the cream cheese and salt together until well combined
3     in a medium pan mix the milk, cream, and sugar
4     bring to a boil, boil for 4 minutes, stir frequently
5     remove from heat and mix in the cornstarch mixture
6     put back on heat and bring to a boil for 1 minute, stir frequently
7     pour ice cream base into a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap, make sure the plastic
       wrap is touching the mixture so that a skin doesn't form
8     put in refrigerator to cool for at least 3 hours, or overnight
9     then prepare ice cream to manufacturer's instructions
10   when it is almost finished dump in the oreo bits saving about 1/2 cup of them, mix until
       they are well incorporated
11   place in a well-sealed container top with remaining oreo bits and store in freezer,
       best within a week and a half
