peanut butter-oreo ice cream

peanut butter-Oreo ice cream

Yes, peanut ice cream with Oreo cookie chunks. Can you believe it? I owe all the inspiration for this to Emack & Bolio's ice cream. We have an Emack & Bolio's on the cape, and every spring I wait patiently for them to open, to see what new flavors they have created. When I first saw peanut butter oreo I knew I was not only in heaven, but had to give props to Emack & Bolios' for such a genius creation, plus I had to recreate this divine creation at home. I mean why have we not seen peanut butter and oreo ice cream before? I haven't. So right, so modern, such a perfect combo. My all time favorite ice cream is mint oreo, but now, geez I have to give it up to this one. Peanut butter and oreo's.....swoonworthy.
Is this as good as it looks? Oh indeed it is. It's pure custardly, pure peanut butterly, pure filled with Oreo chunk heaven.
And the best part? I did not turn a stove on at all to make the custard. Nope. I used an old classic ice cream base recipe from the boys at Ben & Jerry's. Yes, it involves raw eggs, but in my opinion as long as the eggs are fresh and organic they are fine to eat.

Pretty darn close to the Emack & Bolio's version of pb & Oreo. This Emack & Bolio's is located in Orleans, MA. A place I go to often. If you go there, just down the street about 7 miles is the national seashore--another place I love. I'm sure you've heard me talk about the cape cod national seashore many many times.

Sweet cream base from Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book

print recipe

1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar (next time I would use about 2 TB less of the ¾ cup)
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1 ts vanilla extract
About 1 cup of chopped plain oreo’s (I think, I might have used a bit more)

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue to whisk until completely blended, about 1 minute more.
Pour in the cream, vanilla, peanut butter, and milk and whisk to blend.

Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s manufacturer instructions.
The last 2 minutes of ice cream churning add in the chopped cookies.
Makes about 1 quart.

  8. You are an evil evil woman Dawn. I imagine much of the country is looking at this in their hot cities and swooning. I am looking at it in my cold city and swooning anyway.

  12. You know. I knew there was a reason I bought that five thousand pound jar of peanut butter the other day (other than just to eat with a spoon...cause that's totally what I've been doing). It's like we're connected at the taste buds.

  22. No cooking? Brilliant! Oreos and PB? I have to wipe the drool off the keyboard.

    I've been watching that new cookie show (with some woman called Crazy Susan and her crazy family) hoping she'll come up with some new cookies I can use in ice cream. In my book: Cookies+ice cream= heaven.

  35. It's pretty cool that you don't have to cook the eggs. This is the first time seeing a recipe like this. Definitely a good thing to know for us folks who like a custard-y ice cream and want to save some time.
