I love cookies, chomp chomp chomp! Then, what about cookies and cream?
This week, I show you how to make Oreo homemade ice cream and share with you my cookie monster ice cream recipe for the cookie monster in you!
My playlist of ice cream videos keeps expanding, and you’re most welcome to check them out! So far, I’ve made durian ice cream, double dark chocolate ice cream, coconut ice cream. And if you’ve watched any of those videos, you’ll know how to make the basic ice cream but here’s a quick recap of what you’ll need, anyway!
|Heavy cream or whipping cream||618g|
|4 egg yolks (@14g)||56g|
|12 to 14 cookies of your choice||up to 147g|
In a medium saucepan, stir the heavy cream over low heat until warm
Add xylitol, stir until completely dissolved.
Pour a steady stream of that warm cream into the egg yolks, stir until completely combined
Return the combined mixture to the saucepan, stir for a further ten minutes or so until the cream coats the back of the spoon. Remove from heat.
Keep stirring, while you add the vanilla extract then let it cool for at least two hours or overnight.
After it has cooled, strain it to make sure there are no lumps or clumps, then leave it in the fridge, overnight
When you’re ready to put everything together, take 12 to 14 cookies, put them into a clean ziplock bag, snap it tight, and roughly crush the cookies with your rolling pin
Set the ice cream maker up, pour cream into the machine and set it run for 60 minutes.
30 minutes into the cycle, open the little window and add the cookie crumbs a little at a time.
After the cycle completes, transfer the semi soft ice cream into your favourite tub. Freeze for at least two hours or till it hardens. Best to freeze overnight.
I’m using Oreo cookies in the above recipe but you can pretty much add whatever cookie you fancy. You could even add your leftover brownie in there.
Just as a rough guide, the baked goods added shouldn’t be more than 20 per cent of the total weight.
I like my cookies to be a little more rustic and chunky so that’s how I’m going to leave them. Although I must admit, I went a little overboard this time and put in 15 cookies!
And if you're a cookie monster, like me, you could stick one more whole cookie into your single scoop of ice cream as a topping just before serving!
That’s basically the long and short of my cookie monster ice cream recipe or Oreo homemade ice cream recipe.
I hope you had fun today! And if you find this useful, like it and share it with your friends! In the meanwhile, you have a beautiful day!
