Strawberry Blonde Cookies-n-Cream Ice Cream

This time of year can be so frustrating. Right when I’m ready to completely retire all my summer skirts and shorts for the year, we have a day where it’s 87. Now that the leaves are starting to change, I’m ready for Fall to be here for good. Hubby and I both love ice cream, so I don’t see my ice cream making obsession subsiding any time soon. I hope you guys won’t mind year-round ice cream posts.

As much as I love Oreos, I have to admit that I’ve never actually had a Blonde Oreo before making this ice cream. They sure are delicious, but nothing beats a standard Oreo. A couple years ago, Hubby and I played in a kickball league with some friends. There was a bar near the fields that we would stop in after our games. They had a big jar of Oreos sitting on the bar for people to help themselves to. My good friend K and I would always sneak at least one Oreo when we went there. Sometimes two or three…

I have to admit, I loved this ice cream. But I do think it would be equally delicious, if not better, with regular chocolate Oreos. Whichever kind of Oreo you use, definitely add this to your must-make ice cream list. If you’re anything like me, that list grows faster than I can make ice cream, but that’s ok.

And, if for some horrible reason, you don’t like regular or blonde Oreos, the strawberry base of this ice cream would be great on it’s own as well. It has roasted strawberries in it. How could it possibly be bad?!? Roasting fruit just makes them even sweeter and more intensely flavored than they are raw.

    The original recipe called for a box of Pillsbury’s frosting mix and was much, much better than the current recipes. There was a tunnel of gooey soft fudge in the middle that you just can’t get with today’s recipes for this cake. But it’s still a great cake!
