Ingredients

  • 1 Cup milk
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Cups heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 20 Oreo cookies, crushed, divided

Directions

Combine milk, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Stir until the sugar has totally dissolved. Add cream and vanilla. Stir until blended. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and turn it on. While the ice cream mixture is freezing, crush your Oreos. 

After the ice cream maker has been going for about 15 minutes, add in half the Oreos. Wait another 15 minutes, then add the other half. Turn off the ice cream maker and spoon the ice cream into a container. Put it in the freezer for at least a couple hours before serving.

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.
