Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream
No ice cream maker or attachment needed for this! * To crush your cookies, simply throw them in a zip lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 can 14-ounce sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup or more; depending on how much you want crushed Thin Mint cookies OR any kind of hard cookie*
Using an electric stand mixer, beat the heavy cream, condensed milk, and vanilla on HIGH speed in a large bowl until thick, stiff peaks form, or for about 7-8 minutes. It's important to get the stiff peaks (as much as possible). You should after about 7-8 minutes.
Mix in the crushed cookies by hand, gently.
Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan or freezer-safe container, cover and freeze until firm, for at least 8 hours and up to 2 weeks. Best if left to freeze overnight.
