Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

This is not your average Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, this isn’t Oreo dust or a few crumbles of cookies, this is nearly an entire package of chocolate sandwich cookies stuffed into a batch of ice cream.

If you love Oreos, you are certain to love this homemade cookies and cream ice cream.

Homemade Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

This is creamy, rich, homemade vanilla ice cream absolutely loaded with chunks of Oreos. Oh, Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, how I love you. Is it the fact that handfuls of my favorite sandwich cookies are crammed into each bowl of creamy ice cream?

Or is it simply that I can never have too many ways to eat Oreos? or is it that I can never have enough recipes for homemade ice cream? Whatever the reason, this is our house’s newest favorite ice cream.

To really take this ice cream over the top, I recommend stirring together a batch of this Homemade Chocolate Sauce while the ice cream is churning.

Chocolate Magic Shell is another favorite topping for ice cream in our house as well. However you serve it, this ice cream is always a treat.

The most popular question I get is whether it’s possible to make ice cream without a machine. The answer is YES. You can make ice cream without a machine. Find the full directions here!

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

A great many of our favorite ice cream recipes begin with a batch of smooth and creamy vanilla ice cream.

To make the best-ever cookies n cream ice cream, chop up a whole pile of chocolate sandwich cookies while the ice cream is churning. When the ice cream is ready, layer those cookie pieces into a container with the soft ice cream.

All that’s left is to stash the ice cream cookie mixture in the freezer until it’s semi-firm and scoopable. Easy as can be to make and you likely won’t be buying another carton of cookie and cream ice cream from the store anytime soon.

Yes, homemade cookies and cream ice cream really IS that good.

The ultimate cookies and cream ice cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Recipe

  1. Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla.
  2. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. (I use this ice cream compressor or this ice cream maker for homemade ice cream.)
  3. Churn according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  4. While the ice cream is churning, chop each cookie into 4 pieces.
  5. When the ice cream has finished churning, scatter 1 cup of cookie pieces in the bottom of a freezer-safe container.
  6. Scoop half the ice cream over the cookies in the container, sprinkle the ice cream with 1 cup of cookie pieces.
  7. Spread the ice cream across the container and top it with the remaining cup of cookie pieces. Freeze until firm.

These are my favorite inexpensive containers for storing ice cream. They’re perfect for gifting (who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?) storage, re-using, etc. I write the flavors on the lids with a sharpie and it washes off with dish soap.

I have more ice cream scoops than I can keep track of at this point and I definitely play favorites. This ice cream scoop does the best job ever of cutting through firm ice cream and still delivers a pretty scoop. It gets bonus points for being one of the least expensive scoops I own as well.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce

Homemade Ice Cream

There aren’t many things I enjoy more than a bowl of homemade ice cream. The odds are good that you will find my ice cream maker churning on the kitchen counter at least a couple of times a month. (Truthfully, you’ll probably find it there more often than that.)

This Chocolate Chip Toffee Ice Cream is one of my favorite go-to ice cream recipes. I keep the mini chips and toffee bits for that ice cream on hand in the pantry.

If you’re a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream is going to be your new favorite. Brownie Berry Ice Cream was inspired by a trip to Portland and I still grin every time I make it.

Fresh Mint Ice Cream is like no other mint ice cream you’ve tried in the past. As you know, I love a great mint ice cream and Peppermint Candy Cane Ice Cream is a Christmas-time proof of that.

Butterbeer Ice Cream and Fried Ice Cream are a couple of new ones that are on my list to try this summer.
