2/3 cup oreo's -- coarsely chopped
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Ben and Jerry have been making Oreo Mint ever since they opened their first
store in the gas station. it was their top-selling flavor for a long time and
was only recently nudged out of first place by Heath Bar Crunch.
Place the cookies in a bowl, cover and refrigerate. Whisk the eggs in a mxing
bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a
time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour
in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. add the peppermint extract and blend
again. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following
manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes
before it is done, add the chopped cookies, then continue freezing until the ice
cream is ready.
Makes 1 generous quart.
