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!
