Peppermint Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

So I bet you can all guess what Giveaway #4 will be…an ice cream maker!!! Everyone needs one because homemade is cream is priceless. Homemade ice cream sandwiches are even better. Make sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post. Winner will be notified via email within 48 hours of the giveaway closing.


Peppermint is a great flavor after a heavy meal. Especially one containing lots of garlic like most meals in my home do. Cookies and Cream ice cream is my favorite so naturally I added some crushed Oreos to the peppermint ice cream. This ice cream combined with the best Buttermilk Sugar Cookies is a match made in heaven!

Peppermint Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches


  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup crushed Oreos
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy cane pieces
  • Peppermint Sugar Cookies
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk or cream

    Ice Cream Base:
  1. Beat the egg yolks in a bowl until they turn a light lemon yellow color, about 3 or 4 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Combine the whipping cream, milk and the remaining sugar in a heavy-bottom saucepan.
  3. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is hot.
  4. Ladle about 1 cup of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, whisking constantly until well-blended and smooth.
  5. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the saucepan and continue to cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens enough to form a film or coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat and add peppermint extract.
  7. Let the mixture cool to room temperature then freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  8. After churning the ice cream for about 2 minutes add the crushed Oreos and peppermint pieces. Continue to churn until thick and ice cream consistency.
  9. Freeze in airtight container for at least 1 hour before serving.

    I LOVE peppermint ice cream and wish I had one of those ice cream sandwiches right now! I have lots of small kitchen gadgets but an ice cream maker is not one of them. I would definitely put it to good use.
