Cookies & Cream Ice Cream






I bought an Ice-cream Maker during the week at Sears. One of the books I found at the library was Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt. I made French-Vanilla Ice Cream and added 2/3 cup chopped oreo's about 10 minutes before the ice cream maker was done. It tastes very much like what we buy at the supermarket.

Ingredients:

3 cups half and half
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
In a heavy medium saucepan, combine half and half, sugar and beaten egg yolks.
Cook and stir over low heat until mixture coats the back of a spoon and it is slightly thickened.
Cool to room temperature.
Stir in whipping cream and vanilla.
Pour into ice cream maker.
Follow the manufacturers directions.
Makes 2 quarts.

I added 1 tsp. cornstarch to the first mixture.
And added 2/3 cup coarsely chopped Oreo Cookies.
