Ben & Jerry's Homemade Oreo Mint Ice Cream

Years ago I visited the original Ben and Jerry's in Burlington, Vermont and after seeing how the magic was made and sampling their sweet treats I just had to get myself a souvenir from the gift shop.  My selection was this Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream Cookbook.  Last weekend Anthony and I made Oreo Mint Ice Cream.  I took the recipe up a notch in the mint department by using Mint Oreo's vs. traditional Oreo's.

Oreo Mint Ice Cream
By:  Ben & Jerry's Cookbook

2/3 cup coarsely chopped Mint or Regular Oreo Cookies
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons peppermint extract

Place the cookies in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate.

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more.  Pour in the cream and milk, and whisk to blend.  Add the peppermint extract and blend again.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the chopped cookies, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

Makes generous 1 quart.
