Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Recipe

Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a classic summertime favorite! 

It’s my favorite time of the year. Ice cream time. Every Sunday I have the kids we try a new ice cream flavor together. We’ve made some pretty fun flavors from traditional Oreo to this Peeps Oreo Ice Cream flavor.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Recipe


    For the Cookie Dough:
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • For the Ice Cream:
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (do not use dairy free substitutions)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract, or 2 vanilla beans, scraped


    To Make the Cookie Dough:
  1. In a bowl cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the vanilla extract and water, stirring until combined. Slowly pour in the flour and continue stirring until mixed well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Shape the dough into a log and freeze for 1-2 hours. When ready to mix into the ice cream, remove from freezer and cut into bite sized pieces. Place the pieces into the ice cream maker for 5-10 minutes to mix.
  4. For the Ice Cream:
  5. In a saucepan set to low heat, place the egg yolks and sugar. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved (around 5-8 minutes). Remove from heat and set the bowl aside.
  6. While the egg yolks and sugar are cooking, in a small bowl, place 1/4 cup of milk and cornstarch. Stir to dissolve. Set aside.
  7. In a large saucepan, place the remaining milk and cream. Stir to combine, then allow to sit until egg and sugar mixture is done. When sugar is dissolved, move egg mixture off the heat and allow to cool. Slide the large saucepan onto the burner and turn heat up to medium. Stir until milk becomes heated and tiny bubbles around the edges form. Remove from heat, than slowly whisk in the egg and sugar mixture, whisking until combined. Add in the cornstarch and milk and continue whisking until combined.
  8. Finally stir in the vanilla extract or vanilla beans.
  9. Place mixture in your ice cream container and churn according to your ice cream makers manufacturer directions. Add the cookie dough according to directions above. When done, place ice cream in a freezer safe container for several hours to firm or to store.
