Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream from Sugarlaws

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.  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.  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.  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):  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.  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.  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.   Add the remaining five and pulse briefly, to create larger pieces.  Mix in the milk, sugar and heavy cream, and mix thoroughly.  Churn in an ice cream for about 45 minutes, and then freeze for several hours until the ice cream is at your preferred consistency.

    I envy you in these days before your wedding! Those were some of the craziest, sweetest days. I did two things that helped me remember them even better– I listened to the same two CDs over and over again, and I watch “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” almost every night. Now, when I run into those songs or those movies, woosh, I’m whisked right back to that time.

    Now I’m going to put my ice cream making attachment in the freezer– you’ve got me craving homemade ice cream!

    This looks delicious! Your mango ginger ice cream was a hit with my family, and since we’re all chocoholics, I bet this would be even better!

    Congratulations and best wishes for your wedding. Chocolate is always a wonderful way to celebrate. I always make my ice-creams without eggs too.

    Congrats on your upcoming wedding! And I love the way you make ice cream–heavy cream, no eggs–so simple plus instant gratification!

    From the date of this post it appears that are just married – Congratulations!

    Quick question regarding the oreos. Do you count each oreo as one cookie or two? Do you use just the cookie part or the whole cookie including the filling?

    It looks great – cant wait to try it.

    I have used your recipe for the cookies and cream and the Nutella ice cream and both were awesome! I have decided to use your formula to make dulce de leche ice cream-I’ll let you know 🙂

    I’ve just got into making ice creams, will definitely give this a try, especially as it contains my favourite drink LOL

    Congratulations on your marriage too.

    I’ve never seen a recipe for ice cream with Vodka in it!  Makes me think Polish – I’m going to make some and serve it in my polish pottery!!

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Thanks a lot!
