Ingredients

For the cookie dough:

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Cup M&Ms

For the ice cream:

  • 2 Cups heavy whipping cream
  • 14 Ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla

Directions

For the cookie dough:

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars together. Stir in the vanilla, salt, and flour, until just combined. Add the M&M’s and stir. Turn the dough out onto a large sheet of plastic wrap and press into a 1-inch thick slab. Wrap up in the plastic wrap and place in the fridge until cold and firm, then cut into tiny cubes.

For the ice cream:

In a large mixing bowl with a whisk attachment whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form, around 3-5 minutes. Gently fold in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Mix in the cubes of cookie dough before pouring into a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Freeze overnight.

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.
