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.

    This is a good idea! I make the same kind of idea but with hershey’s kisses. If you are able to get the square pretzels (snyders makes them… their shape is called butter snaps or something like that) you top them with a hershey kiss. Then you pop them in the oven on 200 degrees for a few minutes. You will know they are done when the chocolate looks shiny. After that, you can either press down the kiss a bit to join it with the pretzel, or top the pretzel with another pretzel to make a pretzel and chocolate sandwich. They are yummy and super easy! 🙂

    This is, quite possibly, the worst recipe I’ve ever made. The only redeeming quality about this is the taste.

    So, the first issue is that there was WAY too much liquid in the cake batter. This is where everything went to hell. I decided to make these in cupcake form since I didn’t have round cake pans. The cake crumbled as I attempted to remove the cupcake wrappers.

    Next, the marshmallow filling. This was literally the worst trying to put sticky filling into a crumbly cake.

    For my surviving cakes that didn’t crumble to death, I attempted to cover in ganache. The ganache was too dang thick for this delicate cake.

    So, as I sit here on Christmas eve writing this review, I have toppling, crumbly ding songs sitting in my freezer as I make my last attempt to save these monstrosities.

    Afterwards, I will promptly burn your recipe and enjoy it.

    I am sure you are a very wonderful person and meant no I’ll will, but this recipe must be destroyed.
