You can make homemade cookies and cream ice cream with the help of the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment!

I was a very lucky girl this Christmas. I got one of the 10 KitchenAid Attachments that have been sitting on my wish list, the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment! I really wasn’t expecting it and we had to jump right in and make our first batch of homemade ice cream right away.

We went with a family favorite, Cookies and Cream. If I was being honest, I would let you know that we all don’t typically agree on an ice cream flavor. This means we usually have a few gallons sitting in the freezer at any time.

Now that we have the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment, we can make our favorite flavors right at home! I’m not going to lie. It is a little involved. But it is so worth it! Once you make the ice cream base a few times, you can crank out your ice cream in no time.

Before you jump in to making your own homemade ice cream with the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment, you need a few things to get you started.

Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups half-and-half
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2.5 cups whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 20 cream filled cookies, crushed

Instructions

  1. In medium saucepan over medium heat, heat half-and-half until very hot but not boiling, stirring often. Remove from heat; set aside.
  2. Place egg yolks and sugar in the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds, or until well blended and slightly thickened.
  3. Continuing on Speed 2, very gradually add half-and-half; mix until blended. Return half-and-half mixture to medium saucepan; cook over medium heat until small bubbles form around edge and mixture is steamy, stirring constantly. Do not boil.
  4. Transfer half-and-half mixture into large bowl; stir in whipping cream, vanilla and salt. Cover and chill thoroughly, at least 8 hours.
  5. Assemble and engage the KitchenAid® Ice Cream Maker attachment. Turn to STIR Speed (Speed 1). Using a container with a spout, pour mixture into freeze bowl. Continue on STIR (Speed 1) for 15 to 20 minutes or until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Add crushed cookies during last 3 to 5 minutes of freeze time.
  7. Immediately transfer ice cream into serving dishes, or freeze in an airtight container.

Have I convinced you to make your own homemade ice cream yet? Here a few more tips to get you going!

Tips for making Cookies and Cream Ice Cream with the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

  • Don’t forget to put the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Bowl in the freezer for a least 24 hours. You need the bowl to be frozen solid to make your ice cream.
  • You also need to make your ice cream base at least 8 hours before churning. It needs to cool and chill properly.
  • Make sure you have the proper container to store your ice cream. That is if you don’t eat it all in one sitting. I have found the Oxo Glass 8 Cup Container to work the best. It holds one batch of ice cream and is air tight.
