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.

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 don’t think I’ve ever made ice cream with coconut milk. I’ll have to remember to try this next time I want to make ice cream! which is often, but I already have three flavors in my freezer right now haha.

      Wow three flavors in there at once! You should definitely try using coconut milk. It’s very creamy.

    vanilla Beans Are In The Directions But Not The Ingredients…Should They Be Included?

    • beantownbaker — June 15th, 2013 @ 5:21 pm

      Sorry about that. There are no vanilla beans in this ice cream. I have fixed the recipe instructions to reflect that.

    What a fun combo! Now, I need to decide whether to make your sugar cookie or your snickerdoodle ice cream first!

    • beantownbaker — June 24th, 2013 @ 3:47 pm

      Oh – that’s a tough call! They’re both good.
