Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

I haven’t given a thought to my ice cream machine in months.  Yet somehow those darn Double Stuf Cool Mint Oreos managed to jump right into my shopping cart last week and practically begged to be mixed into some ice cream.  It’s been so cold and wet and icky here, but I was hoping some minty ice cream would cheer us up.  Unfortunately, the mint part just wasn’t quite minty enough for me.  But those cookies?  They are a perfect ice cream addition!  Well, frankly, who needs the ice cream anyway… just pass me some cookies!

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

3/4 cup chopped mint Oreo cookies

    I’ve held off on buying an ice cream maker for some time now. Your post isn’t helping me stay strong! I love, love, love chocolate and mint together.

    And I really want those cookies now. I’m forgetting all about my upset stomach – perhaps mint oreos (or at least the thought of them) cures nausea???

    Cookies and cream ice cream has been a craving of mine recently and Blue Bell so far is doing well at pleasing me, however I know that homemade is so much better!
