Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

I can't believe how time flies. My oldest is now ten years old. I can still remember the day he was born just like it was yesterday. Now he is quite the little athlete & is off in a million directions. Thankfully he still loves me and don't tell his friends but he won't leave in the morning without a hug and kiss. We'll see how much longer that lasts. Hopefully a long time.

Part of the birthday celebration at our house is picking what to have for dinner and dessert. The birthday boy requested one of his favorites, Cookie Dough Ice Cream. I love homemade ice cream and found this recipe on Big Oven. I changed it just a little bit. It turned out really creamy with lots of cookie dough chunks. This recipe makes a lot. I used a 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker and it only fit half of this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream
adapted from Big Oven

2 cups Milk
1 3/4 cups Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Half & Half
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
4 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
2 packages Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Take the chocolate cookie dough out of fridge and leave out till needed. Scald milk until bubbles form around edge. Remove from heat. Add sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved. Stir in half and half, vanilla, and whipping cream.
Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Freeze as directed by your ice cream machines instructions. Once ice cream has been through the entire ice cream machine process and is now a chilled soft ice cream, add the chocolate chip cookie dough. Just break up the dough as best you can with your hands and drop it in small clusters into the soft ice cream. Try to mix it around to ensure that the cookie dough is evenly distributed throughout the ice cream.
Put the ice cream in the freezer for several hours until hardened.
Pin It!

Holy smokes!! I can't believe how big Christian is. I still remember the little 1 year old with the huge eyes and adorable smile. I guess he's still that same kid right...just bigger. :)
