Ice Cream, Ice Cream we all scream for Ice Cream! I adore ice cream and with my new KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker I was determined to make my inaugural batch. (If you’d like to see my impressions of KitchenAid’s Ice Cream Maker, I’ve shared them in my post: KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker & Tropical Fruit Sorbet Recipe). It was a bit intimidating trying to decide which flavour and recipe to make after looking online; there are so many wonderful ice cream recipe sites to choose from.
I turned to the followers on my Facebook Page for their opinions and they were ultimately in favour of Cookies and Cream which is one of our family’s favourite choices. Now I just needed a simple recipe.
Off I went to Google, blogs and Pinterest to investigate how folks went about making ice cream. In the end I combined a few recipes, simply because I didn’t have all of the ingredients in the house and I wanted to get this ice cream made for my family. I also decided up on this recipe because it’s simple, there’s no cooking necessary for the base which eliminates some work.
I’m EXTREMELY happy with the results, this is a simple recipe which my family assures me tastes better than the Cookies & Cream ice cream we usually buy.

For this recipe I decided to make a little YouTube video, I really felt it would show how simple it is to make your own Cookies & Cream ice cream using the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment.
- 1 cup of milk (we had 2% in the house and it worked out well)
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 3/4 cup sugar
- pinch of salt
- 20 Oreo cookies
- Combine milk, sugar and salt in a bowl and whisk until sugar is fully dissolved.
- Add in cream and stir well.
- Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
- Place 20 oreos into a bowl and use a potato masher to crush.
- Place the frozen ice cream maker bowl onto the mixer and set up the “dasher” as per manufacturer instructions.
- Pour your chilled mixture into the ice cream maker, set it to stir on a low setting and leave for 20 mins.
- Fold crushed cookies into the ice cream.
- Transfer ice cream into a sealable container and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours to set.
