Milk's favorite cookie is also ice cream's favorite cookie! This Cookies and Cream Ice Cream has real Oreo cookies mixed in a rich vanilla ice cream base. The heavenly vanilla flavor and chocolate cookie chunks make this a favorite dessert recipe!


  • 1 ¾ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ¼ cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 20 Oreo cookies (about 1 ½ cups), crushed


    1. In a large bowl, whisk heavy cream, milk, sugar, sald, and vanilla extract together. 
    2. Pour directly into an ice cream maker and follow directions per manufacturer’s instructions for churning. 
    3. Once churning is complete, fold in crushed cookies and pour into an airtight, freezer-safe container and freeze at least 12 hours before serving.


  • For a deeper vanilla bean flavor, use one vanilla pod, split lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Or use homemade vanilla sugar!
  • I used a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and it took about 20-25 minutes to churn. Ice cream was soft, not not scoopable.
  • I use a metal bread loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap then foil to store my ice cream.
  • Due to the frequent opening and closing of a traditional refrigerator/freezer, it may take longer for the ice cream to be solid. Additionally, the ice cream may remain in a soft state. For best results, placing the ice cream in a deep freezer is recommended.
  • Crush your cookies to desired consistency. Leave a few larger chunks for best results!
  • Dip the tip of a waffle cone in melted chocolate and add sprinkles.
