Oreo Mint Ice Cream

Oreo Mint Ice Cream

2/3 cup coarsely chopped Oreo cookies

2 large eggs                                   2 cups whipping cream

¾ cup sugar                                   1 cup milk

2 teaspoons peppermint extract


  1. Place the cookies in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the peppermint extract and blend again.
  3. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the chopped cookies, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

Makes generous 1 quart.
