Cookie Dough Ice Cream
What is it about raw cookie dough that turns us all into kids? The sugary rush, the texture? Or is it just the feeling of being naughty? Whatever the reason, Cookie Dough Ice Cream is a true delight, and the quickest way to recapture that sneaky feeling of childhood.
INGREDIENTS | YIELD: 1 QUART
- 2½ cups heavy cream
- 1½ cups whole milk

- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Pinch salt
- 1 package refrigerated cookie dough, frozen
Combine all ingredients except the cookie dough in a medium saucepan over low heat. Do not allow to boil.

Chop frozen cookie dough into small pieces and add toward the end of the freeze cycle.
Cookie Dough Caution
This recipe calls for prepackaged cookie dough, which contains raw eggs. It is the simplest way to gain that cookie-dough chewiness that we all crave, but, if concerned about the raw eggs, you can prepare an eggless cookie dough to use instead. In many cities, you may be able to find egg-free or vegan cookie dough in groceries or specialty stores.
