Cookie Crazy Monster Ice Cream






Did you grow up with Sesame Street? Well, C is for cookie.  That’s good enough for me.  And this ice cream is good enough for me also.

Major Key:

  1. Basically the idea is cookies and ice cream. So you don’t have to make the cookie dough.  You don’t have to use Oreos.  You can use any cookie you like.  Cookies and ice cream go well together.  It’s going to be hard to mess this recipe up by switching to your favorite cookie.


For the cookie dough

1/4 c. unsalted butter, softened

1/4 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tbsp. Tastic Sweet*

1/3 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


For the ice cream base


1 c. whole milk

3/4 c. sugar

2 large eggs

seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tbsp Tastic Sweet*

2 c. heavy cream

blue food coloring

1 c. roughly chopped “Double Stuf” Oreo cookies

chocolate chip cookie dough bites



For the cookie dough

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add flour, Tastic Sweet and salt, and mix to combine. Mix in vanilla, and then the chocolate chips. Pinch off small pieces of dough, aiming for 1/4″ to 1/2″ pieces. Place dough bites on a parchment paper- lined pan and chill until ice cream base is ready.

For the ice cream base

In a small saucepan, warm milk to 170°F, stirring occasionally. Do not let milk boil. While the milk is warming, whisk sugar, eggs, vanilla bean seeds, Tastic sweet and vanilla in a medium bowl. Very slowly and gradually drizzle warmed milk into the egg mixture, whisking continuously to prevent the egg from cooking from the heat. Whisk in heavy cream, and then food coloring to your preference. I add a few drops of color, but prefer to keep the blue on the lighter side. Chill for an hour, or until cool to the touch. You can even chill overnight if desired, and then make the ice cream the following day.

Pour cream mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s directions. Once the ice cream has reached a soft-serve consistency, mix in the chopped Oreos and chocolate chip cookie bites. Mix by hand if necessary. Pour ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze until solid.
