Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It's Wednesday, so why not make cookie dough ice cream? My usual complaint about so-so cookie dough ice cream is where the heck is the cookie dough? For yours, add cookie dough to your heart's desire.

I've tweaked my first cookie dough ice cream recipe, using a different batter, smaller chocolate chips, lightly simmering the ice cream batter and making a chocolate chip ice cream (because there is no such think as too many chips).

It all starts with the cookie dough.. if your cookie dough is average, you cookie dough ice cream will be lackluster. Make your favorite, or use my recipe.

{Cookie Dough Ice Cream}

For the ice cream:
2 cups whole milk
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
3 eggs or egg beaters
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cups brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 cups mini chocolate chips 

In a large bowl, whisk together milk, cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, salt and sugars. Combine. In a large saucepan, simmer the mixture until it begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Do not allow it to boil. Remove from heat and cool in an ice bath or in the fridge. When completely cool, make according to ice cream freezer instructions, adding the chips near the end.

For the Cookie Dough:
1 egg (I use egg beaters)
1/4 cup crisco or butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup mini-chocolate chips

Stir together egg, butter and sugars. Add in salt, baking soda and vanilla. Stir. Then mix in flour, then chocolate chips. Prepare a small cookie sheet with parchment paper. Press cookie dough onto surface, cover with another piece of parchment paper and stick in the freezer. 

Just before the ice cream comes out of the ice cream freezer, remove cookie sheet. Place dough on a cutting board and cut into smallish squares, the size is your preference. As you pour ice cream into an airtight container, layer cookie dough throughout. 

My boyfriend calls this my best ice cream recipe. I credit the cookie dough.


  1. What do you mean with a 'cup', coffee cup? It would be better if you would say how much ml it is :) thank you

    1. In America, "cup" is a unit of measurement, not a regular old drinking cup. Google has a good cup to ml converter.

  2. there shouldnt be coffie in it. its not good
