Recipe For Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

I was having tea with a friend the other day and we were having a chat about all sorts of things. Her response to one of my statements was “oh, that is so random”. Used informally, this means unknown. I prefer to use the word to mean out of place. Since that conversation, the word random has become my new catch word. I have found myself using it to describe all sorts of occasions and things. The other night we were having dinner at a friend. We had organized to come over to his place at 6pm with the food and braai for him as he is unable to stand at the BBQ himself due to having had a total knee replacement. He and his wife were not there when we arrived, prompting my first use of the word random that night. Then someone arrived at dinner time, unannounced for a drink – random! And even though he said he was not staying for dinner, our friend’s wife set a place for him at the table and not for Dave – random again! In this cookies and cream ice cream you will find random bits of soft, chewy cookies that are not out of place. I steered away from the traditional addition of cream filled hard cookies for this recipe, and used something that has a fudge like quality. This is one ice cream I will be making more of for sure.

Do you have a catch word?

  6. You can’t go wrong with ice cream that contains cookies! Two things that are enticing even on their own. It looks so creamy and the little crunchy bits are the ideal contrast.

  11. Tandy, I am absolutely drooling over your cookies and cream ice cream. It has always been a favorite! I want this over those waffles you made. For breakfast to give me a pick-me-up. I have never made my own ice cream before but would love to think I could!
