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.

2 - 2 1/2 cups chopped sugar cookie bars, about 6 bars, chopped

    Thanks everyone. We definitely lucked out with the weather. It was a bit hot, but not unbearable.

    It was an exhausting day. I think we left the last bakery around 8:30. Hubby and I grabbed some dinner and got home around 11:00. We were exhausted!

    What a great idea! I am in Boston and I am amazed at all of the cupcake shops that keep popping up. And another one: I just read that Todd English is opening “Curly Cupcakes” on Charles street!

    I love the fact that you did this crawl – I wanted to do the same thing after reading a Boston.com article a few months ago but never got off my lazy butt to do it. You’ve inspired me to start visiting some of these places.

    From a wedding standpoint, I love all the pictures of the cupcakes – this is because I want them as a part of my wedding reception and need to find the right bakery to get them from.

    As always, great post!

    Thanks for the note about Curly Cupcakes, I’ll have to check that out too.

    As mentioned in the post, we were only trying cupcake bakeries that were accessable via the T. We wanted to be able to rate bakeries that anyone could get to in the city. There are quite a few other bakeries that don’t meet that criteria. I’ll definitely have to try Sensational Cupcakes next time I’m in the Saugus area though.

    you should have gone to Lyndell’s – the *real* Lyndell’s – in ball square close to Davis. their cupcakes are great. there is also an adorable cupcake-related story about Lyndell’s: http://www.wickedlocal.com/somerville/homepage/x418534015/Groom-to-be-My-love-is-like-a-Lyndell-s-cupcake

    I agree with everyone that this was a great idea and I love reading the reviews. I also second the idea of going to the real Lyndell’s in Somerville, it is the same place, but the original store. However in my opinion the best thing at Lyndells is their black and white cookies. They are like flat cupcakes more than cookies and the frosting on them is at least an inch thick. Their chocolate frosting is A-MA-ZING!!!

    I have to give a nod to Lyndell’s in Somerville.I ended up with a ton of goods from them at The taste of Somerville.
    If you’re out on the T again you have to check out Sweet Tooth in South Boston just up Broadway from the Broadway T stop. Their cupcakes are enormous and are the absolute best I’ve ever had.

    They are also available at Lamberts in downtown Boston.
