Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

Wazzup my peeps?!?! OK so today we are trying a new type of  sweet summer treat. One that you have fun with making it. NOT buying it!!! This is a recipe my mom found in her new favorite cookbook: Our Best Bites, by Sara Wells & Kate Jones  to make homemade Snickerdoodle Ice Cream. YES, I said it: Snickerdoodle  ICE CREAM. Cool right? This treat starts as a custard, turns into a "smoothie" , and ends as a delightful treat that is so good, it probably will last 2 seconds!           :p EAT UP :p
                                                  
Snickerdoodle Ice Cream
Recipe from Our Best Bites

1 1/2 c. 2% milk
1 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla (we substituted 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste)
2 tsp. cinnamon
About 1 1/2-2 c. chopped sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, or shortbread cookies.  We had terrific results with Girlscout Cookies' Trefoils.

 Combine milk and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium until bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat.

 Whisk egg yolks in a small bowl.  Very slowly, and carefully add 1/2 of the hot milk mixture, while whisking the yolks constantly (ASK FOR MOMS HELP HERE). Return pan with remaining milk mixture to stove top and then whisk the egg and milk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking constantly. Be careful not to get the eggs too hot too quickly, or they will scramble. You don't want bits of scrambled eggs in your ice cream.

 Add whipping cream to milk/egg mixture. Heat over medium-low heat while stirring constantlyuntil the custard mixture temperature reaches 160 degrees. It will start to thicken quickly; remove from heat when your finger leaves a track on a spoon coated in the custard mixture.  Whisk in cinnamon and vanilla. Place the custard in an airtight container and chill in the refrigerator several hours.

 To make the ice cream, pour the chilled custard mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is almost done (the ice cream will look like soft-serve, and the machine might seem to be slowing down or having a hard time turning) add chopped cookies.

 Remove from ice cream freezer and place in another air-tight container to freeze a couple of hours to firm it up.

Enjoy the creamy, cinnamon, crunchy goodness!!!
