Chunks of cookie dough and vanilla ice cream... what’s not to love? For an end-of-summer treat make this delicious and simple recipe. 


For the cookie dough:

  • stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4  Cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  light brown sugar, packed
  • 2  Tablespoons  milk
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  Cup  mini semisweet chocolate chips

For the ice cream:

  • fourteen-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 4  Cups  whole milk or half and half
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla


For the cookie dough:

Cream together the butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Gradually add in milk and vanilla. Add the flour and salt and mix on low speed until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.


For the ice cream:

Put all of the ingredients together into a large mixing bowl and stir until well blended. Once all the ingredients have been mixed thoroughly, pour it into the assembled ice cream maker. Churn for about 20 minutes then fold in cookie dough.

If you like, you can serve the ice cream with the soft serve consistency straight out of the ice.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
