Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

i've been on an ice cream kick lately... so much so, that my husband decided to order an ice cream maker one afternoon and i never realized how easy it could be. with the right ice cream maker and a few simple ingredients, voila! homemade ice cream in no time.

here's the latest recipe we can't seem to get enough of...
  -  1 cup of whole milk (you can use lowfat milk, too!)
  -  3/4 cup sugar
  -  2 cups heavy whipping cream
  -  2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  -  pinch of salt (optional)
  -  your favorite chocolate sandwich cookies (i.e. oreos), crushed

wisk together the whole milk and sugar until the sugar dissolves. add heavy cream, vanilla and a pinch of salt (if you like). cover bowl and put it in the fridge for about an hour. when you're ready, pour the mixture into your ice cream maker's frozen bowl and run it for approx. 20 minutes. add the cookies and continue to mix for another 5 to 10 until the ice cream is mixed. i'd recommend having a spoonful or two (because, how could you not??) and then freeze the rest in an air-tight container to enjoy later.

fresh strawberry ice cream is next on our list... until then, i hope you enjoy this one!
