If you like Oreo Cookies you are going to love this! Making a cooked custard first makes this a quality, smooth and creamy ice cream. This recipe makes about 3 1/2 - 4 quarts of ice cream. I hope you will enjoy this!

This is a delicious recipe! Cookies & Cream is one of my favorite flavors, so I was happy to find this. I used a double boiler for the custard part, I find that helps keep the milk from burning, as well as the eggs from forming lumps when added. The only suggestion I have would be to wait until after churning to stir in the cookies by hand - by adding them as directed before churning the first time I made this, I ended up with brown ice cream from the cookies being pulverized throughout the churning time. Stirring them in by hand at the end only takes a moment, and leaves nice big chunks. Wonderful, easy recipe - thank you for sharing!
