Cookie Dough Ice Cream

I love cookie dough ice cream. I find it very challenging to pass it up for other flavors. I have always had the sneaking suspicion that I could make cookie dough ice cream pretty easily – but I was a bit worried about the eggs in the cookie dough. So I set out to make an ultra-easy, egg-free cookie dough ice cream…and I call this a huge success!


What you need:


For the cookie dough:

  • 1 stick (1/2 c.) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ c. granulated sugar
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. milk
  • 1 c. flour
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½ c. dark chocolate chips, coarsely chopped

For the ice cream:

  • 2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 13 oz. sweetened condensed milk, chilled
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt


  • stand mixer with paddle attachment
  • spatula
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • ice cream maker

Time: 10 minutes prep + 2-4 hours chilling time.

Freezeable: It’s ice cream!

Serves: Makes a half gallon.

Multiplying the recipe: No.

Cookie Dough Ice Cream:

For the cookie dough: Place the butter and the sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. Cream together on high for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and milk. With the mixer on low, add in the flour and salt and mix until well blended. Stir in the chopped chocolate bits. On a lined baking sheet, press the cookie dough into a flat rectangle, about 1” high. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.

For the ice cream: In a 2-quart mixing bowl, place all the ice cream ingredients. Whisk together. Place the ice cream mixture in the bowl of an ice cream maker and process according  to the manufacturer’s instructions for 25-30 minutes.

To assemble: In the last few minutes of the ice cream maker process, remove the baking sheet from the freezer and chop the cookie dough into irregular small bites. When the ice cream maker has finished churning the ice cream, place it in the 2-quart bowl and stir in the chopped cookie dough. Freeze for 2-4 hours, until firm.
