Double Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Remember how I mentioned that I was hoping the Snickerdoodle Ice Cream I made a few weeks ago would keep Hubby quiet about requesting cookie dough ice cream? Yea, that only lasted about a day. Then he was back to requesting cookie dough ice cream.

So why the hesitation? I have to confess that I don’t like cookie dough ice cream. I know, it’s crazy, right? I can’t explain it, I’ve just never liked it. It always left me wanting more. To me, it’s just vanilla ice cream with a scant few morsels of cookie dough. Not worth it.

But this recipe is different. Here, the vanilla ice cream base is replaced with a cookie dough base. I’m going to let that sink in for you for a minute.

Yes, you could make this ice cream base and just stir in chocolate chips. You’d have cookie dough ice cream. But then we stir in actual cookie dough pieces. It’s cookie dough on top of cookie dough. Now that’s some ice cream I can get behind.

It goes without saying that this ice cream disappeared FAST. Faster than a normal batch of ice cream. And in the end, it didn’t put a stop to the requests for cookie dough ice cream. It just proved that cookie dough ice cream can be worth the effort. And Hubby wants me to just make this recipe over and over… At least now I know there’s a recipe that I can make that we’ll both enjoy.

Double Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Yield: ~1 quart

Ingredients:

Cookie Dough Mix-in
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Ice Cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups heavy cream (I used full-fat coconut milk)
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
4 large egg yolks
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole milk (I used full-fat coconut milk)

Directions:

To make the cookie dough: Combine the butter, salt, and brown sugar together in a small bowl. Mix until smooth, breaking up any brown sugar clumps. Stir in the flour until incorporated, then add the vanilla and chocolate chips. Turn the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap, shape into a disk then wrap and refrigerate until well chilled and firm. (If your butter was still hot, the mixture may be loose - just stick the bowl in the fridge for a few minutes and allow it to firm up before shaping and wrapping.)

To make the ice cream: Add the butter to a medium saucepan and set over medium heat. The butter will melt then begin to bubble and foam before eventually starting to brown - swirl the pan occasionally to help it brown evenly. Continue cooking until it becomes a dark shade of golden brown and smells nutty - be patient and watch carefully, it can go from brown to burned quickly. Add the heavy cream and whisk to combine. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer.

Meanwhile, whisk the brown sugar, egg yolks, and salt in a heatproof bowl until pale in color. Slowly add the warm cream mixture to the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Pour back into the saucepan and set over medium-low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon (about 170-175 F on an instant read thermometer). Strain the custard into a heatproof bowl and stir in the vanilla and whole milk.

Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled (overnight is good). Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Meanwhile, chop the disk of cookie dough into bite-size pieces. As you transfer the ice cream to an airtight container for storing, mix in the cookie dough pieces. Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.

    This looks amazing, Jen. I think both my husband and I are slowly becoming more lactose intolerant as we get older. Goat milk ice cream may be something we’ll try soon. Can’t wait to see what other non-dairy ice creams you come up with!

    • beantownbaker — June 19th, 2013 @ 10:23 am

      Thanks! Like I said, coconut milk has been my go-to so far, but it’s definitely fun to try new milk varieties.

    Looks incredible, I need to find a local goat milk supplier…

    • beantownbaker — June 19th, 2013 @ 10:24 am

      Yea, I definitely want to find someone local to get my goat milk from. For now, I’m just happy that I can find it at all. Even back in Boston, it wasn’t on the shelf at my grocery store.

    i had to give up gluten a few months ago and just realized a few weeks ago that i also must give up dairy. i am not sure if it is lactose or casein that i am intolerant of, but i love that you are doing stuff that i may be able to eat someday! (also, we bathe Olive is goat’s milk. it’s great for her eczema!).

      Going dairy free isn’t too bad honestly.

      Oh wow, bathing in goats milk sounds so luxurious!

    Thank you so much for posting this!! I gave up cow dairy in the winter (makes me break out) and have been glaring at my ice cream maker, because sorbets are just not the same and coconut ice cream is good, but so coconutty! I’ve been wondering if I could make ice cream with goat’s milk and now I know I can! The canister just went into the freezer 🙂

    • beantownbaker — June 24th, 2013 @ 8:23 pm

      Nice – glad I could help. I don’t find coconut milk very coconuty… I assume you drink goat’s milk so you’re familiar with the flavor? It definitely has a distinct taste.

    In the ingredients, you say condensed goat milk, but the directions say heavy cream. Which did you mean? Really excited to try out this recipe!

    • beantownbaker — July 22nd, 2013 @ 1:14 pm

      Sorry about that. I used condensed goat milk, not heavy cream. I’m updating the recipe now.

    My wife and I raise a couple of dairy breed goats for home milk use. I don’t find that the milk tastes goaty, it’s actually richer and better tasting than cows milk in my opinion. Although before we discovered that we should pasteurize the milk asap after filtering, we did notice a musky kind of taste…… but with pasteurization started within a minute or two after milking, our milk is just as good or better than the flavor of cows milk. I just ordered an icecream maker. We will definitely use this recipe. Thanks for posting it.

    • beantownbaker — September 25th, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

      Fresh goat milk is not something I have tried. I would love to get my hands on some though!

    I’m looking forward to trying this! We got hooked on Laloo’s goat milk ice cream several years ago, but it’s been increasingly difficult to find, and very expensive ($7.79 a pint as of 2 days ago). It would be great if I could find a homemade alternative.

    • beantownbaker — January 2nd, 2014 @ 1:36 pm

      I agree – Laloo’s is good, but quite expensive. Let me know what you think of this recipe if you try it out.

    I have dairy goats so will toss in my 2 cents worth 😉 Not all goat milk is the same!!! If you like the goaty taste, go ahead and buy your milk at the store. Personally I find the goaty taste vile and disgusting! So for those who want to try goat milk but don’t like that nasty goaty taste, you want raw milk, and the breeds vary in taste a lot. Nigerian Dwarf goats have the highest butterfat and do not have the goaty taste. Their milk is really good! Nubians are second best. It would be worth your while to find a local source of nice raw milk from either of those breeds. Healthier too, as raw milk has all the nutrients nature intended.

    With rare exceptions – goat’s milk should not taste goaty. I can’t comment about grocery store milk, but would urge you and your readers to look for direct-from-the-farm sources. There are a few goats with funny tasting milk – and those work great for making blue cheese! If a goat is healthy, has a good diet with the right balance of vitamins and minerals (very important!), and the milk is handled in a clean manner with quick cooling, it should have a rather sweet taste. I have Nubians and like Cindy above, appreciate the high butterfat. If you’re looking for a milk source – try realmilk.com. There’s also tips there for buying safe milk.
