cookies and cream


W
hat do you do when you have extra cookies, vanilla beans and heavy cream? You make ice cream and then you make ice cream sandwiches. Well thats what you do if you are me and I am you and we are we and we are all together or something like that and you want to be as big as a walrus. This is a little misleading because we are no where near walrus size around here in fact we are more like baby seals.

I discovered a great way to make ice cream that is fun for kids and adults and it is similar to those ice cream balls that they sell. In fact I was doing this before this ball was invented. You get one coffee can that fits inside a larger can (the #10 can). You fill the smaller can with cream, vanilla, and sugar (I put egg yolks but it is against the law and the salmonella police will come and get you) seal it up real good with the lid and some duct tape and put it inside the larger can that you fill up with ice and rock salt (big chunky salt) and seal this can up. Now for the fun. Roll the can around for about 30 minutes, it will churn the cream making ice cream - really.



Freeze it up a little more for firmness and scoop and eat in your favorite way. No photos of this process because it is one of my secrets even though I explained it in detail.

You put egg yolks in your ice cream? GASP! BLASPHEMY!

Nah, I looooove egg yolks in mah ice cream. Get yo butt over here and gimme some of that icy goodness!

TavoLini said...

oh wow--great idea with the cans! (My kitchen floor is slanted; I could just sit on the low side and keep rolling it up. Better than a boomerang!)

That cookie / ice cream sandwich looks HUGE. Was it quite delicious?

Anette said...

Pardon my french, but when I saw that cookie-double with ice cream my first thought was: You bastard!! I want that!

My mum said that when she was little, they made Ice cream like that, only salt and snow in a bucket, and a smaller container inside it. Worked like magic!

Harmony said...

Looks great! I am going to have to try the "can" method in making ice cream!

Marjie said...

I've been telling you how to cook the custard base in the microwave, to avoid extra dirty dishes, but go ahead and get yourself some salmonella, Dog! There is nothing like homemade ice cream, no matter how you want to serve it, and I never have anything but homemade whipped cream. Hubby's relatives say he's spoiled; he tells them not to be so lazy. Do you make your own chocolate sauce? I just figured that one out last weekend!

Award winning stuff right there!

Tanya Kristine said...

5 star: its an easy craft and it seems like a miracle

ap: I think I would have used 'rigid' instead - but this is ice cream

doggybloggy said...

selba: it is so easy and the parts are cheap

pigpigscorner: it can get better - its better if someone makes it for you

monica: thats what I like to hear!

jesse: I live on the dark side - I dont mind flirting with the law...

doggybloggy said...

tavolini: it would work perfect - so instead of rolling it from one to another you can get the job done - solo!

anette: if the chinese didnt invent ice cream I would totally think that you northerners would have...

harmony: its fun for the entire family....LOL

marjie: you are right - I need to remember to temper the yolks and then I wont be felonious monk over here

buff: thanks buddy!

TK: you are a butt scratcher - ick I cant picture you holding one of my delicious desserts!

Mo Diva said...

Christo (sorry for the sp error, I CLEARLY left out the "to". I have a tendency to do that someti)

That cookie concoction is GENIUS!

And thanks for the recommendation~ ya know, I was thinking of making dumplings...although the ones in my head had chocalate and marshmallows in them... yours sound good too.

Tanya Kristine said...

LOL.

duodishes said...

OMG, you're kidding with that monstrous ice cream sammie. Ack, we need that for breakfast now! You're the first person we know to use the kick ball to make ice cream. It sounds so fun and like a good workout!

lisaiscooking said...

That looks like one delicious and fun ice cream sandwich! I hadn't heard of the coffee can ice cream method, but that's a great idea.

Beth said...

ChefBliss.com said...

OMG, this is so funny. I was given an ice cream ball for Christmas many years ago. I have never used it and I think it may still be in a closet somewhere!! I may have to go digging! Thanks for the inspiration!!

doggybloggy said...

mo diva: its ok - its a common name with a common pronunciation...hey your dumplings sound way better than meat loaf any day.

TK: I'm holding all the cookies - keep that in mind!

duodishes: I didnt use the ball I used coffee cans....

lisaiscooking: I picked it up from some old craft book when my kid was little and we would make it all the time...

beth: I gotta do something with this jello between my ears...

chefbliss: please do tell us how it works - when they first came out I wanted one so bad - now I am happy with my tried and true cans...

Jeanne said...

As you know, I come here for vicarious cooking thrills. Today you outdid yourself. I'm trying not to drool on my keyboard.

Creative Mish said...

What a great way to use up the cookies. Especially with homemade icecream! so fun!

Chef E said...

So you finally figured out how to make the cookies thick in a muffin pan like mine?

doggybloggy said...

jeanne: I like the drooling

mish: It was a 'use up' situation to be sure

e: nope, wrong again... I made them the way I usually do - on a cookie sheet..the muffin thing was a 'cute' idea but thats as far as I go.

Mandi said...

Ok, I have never seen a ball thingy - where can I get one????

My newphew loves ice cream and my brother wanted to make him something with fruit in it, because he doesnt eat well.....
