Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

I’ve been having so much fun whipping up various ice cream recipes this year! I’ve seriously been making a batch almost every week. Since I mostly use coconut milk in my ice cream, I like to throw in a sorbet recipe every once and a while too to lighten things up.

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

A few months ago, I threw together some sugar cookie bars to take in to work. I ended up with leftovers to bring home with me. I’m not used to that… I blame it on the fact that the recipe makes a LOT of sugar cookie bars, and it was a beautiful Friday so I think people cut out early. When I take baked goods to work, I don’t usually set them out until the afternoon so I’m not ruining anyone’s lunch appetite.

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

So I found myself with some leftover sugar cookie bars. Not sure what to do with them, I wrapped them up in some plastic wrap and foil and threw them in the freezer.

A couple weeks later, after the huge success of the Snickerdoodle Ice Cream, I was trying to decide what kind of ice cream to make next. You can see where this story is going. Similar to the Snickerdoodle Ice Cream, this is simply a vanilla ice cream (made with almond extract and very little sugar) with large chunks of sugar cookie bars thrown into the mix. To make things even more fun, I also threw some sprinkles in. If you don’t happen to have sugar cookie bars sitting around, or don’t want to make them, you could easily use sugar cookies (homemade, or even store bought) to make this ice cream.

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

With the taste of sugar cookies and the fun sprinkles mixed in, this is the perfect ice cream to serve at a birthday or any other celebration.

    I made these for a friend’s birthday last month and absolutely fell in love with them. They are the perfect St. Patty’s day cupcake. Or any day really. My friends proclaimed them the best they had ever tasted. Yours look fantastic!

    Shayna – So sorry to hear the ganache didn’t set up. Did you try putting it in the fridge? I’ve never had that issue…

    I am ready to make these but I do not have enough bittersweet chocolate for the ganache. Can I use semi-sweet or unsweetened chocolate? Will it still taste okay?

      Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. Semisweet would work ok, I wouldn’t use unsweetened.

    Have you ever made these into a cake? I have made them multiple times and love them but was hoping to make this into a cake for a birthday. Any thoughts?
