Two weeks from today, I will be waking up as a brand new married person.
Needless to say, my head is spinning with all the items on my neverending to-do list. Â There is so much to do, between the preparations and the planning and all the exciting, tiny, tiny details that go into a wedding -- things you don't realize take up a ton of time and attention until you actually go through it.
But I am so, so excited -- it's hard to believe that in just two weeks, I'll be going through one of the biggest transitions of my life. Â I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful, loving fiance, who inspired this recipe by going out of town for a weekend a little while ago. Â Because when he got home on that Sunday night, I made a recipe I knew he couldn't resist (even if it didn't exactly bode well for my pre-wedding diet): Â Cookies and Cream Ice Cream.
And I know I say this a lot, but this is potentially my favorite ice cream recipe I've posted here -- the nutella ice cream is a close second, but depending on your preference, this one might take the cake. Â It's super sweet, just a little bit rich, creamy and delicious -- there are a ton of oreo cookies in this portion of ice cream, and it's like eating pure oreo flavor. Â If you have to break your pre-wedding calorie diet for something, this isn't such a bad way to go.
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
15 oreo cookies
1 tsp vodka
Process 10 of the oreo cookies in food processor until crushed into powder. Â Add the remaining five and pulse briefly, to create larger pieces. Â Mix in the milk, sugar and heavy cream, and mix thoroughly. Â Churn in an ice cream for about 45 minutes, and then freeze for several hours until the ice cream is at your preferred consistency.
