Sugar Cookie Dough Ice Cream

May 29, 2014

A smooth vanilla ice cream packed with edible sugar cookie dough!


Let me start this post with a big sigh of relief " Whew". School is done.  We are finished.  Summer vacation has begun.  The reality of it hasn't really hit yet.  It will.  Next week, when the kids are arguing over who gets the next turn on the computer.  Oh..doesn't matter.  It's so very nice to be done.  It's been a loonngg school year.
A perfect way to start our summer break is with ice cream, don't you think?  This is a very basic ice cream recipe, then, it's packed full of edible sugar cookie dough (no eggs..just the great taste!).
It's all very yum-olicious.  I did add a few sprinkles to the ice cream maker while it was churning..this gave it the light pink tint.  Once this was realized and they were just going to continue to be smeared and mushed, I stopped adding them.  So, sprinkles are totally optional in any way shape or form in this recipe.  Whipped cream for the top is also optional. However, they do make it a bit more fun.
