No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream6:00 AM
At what point does a love for ice cream become a $10/week Ben & Jerry's habit? When one goes to Texas, that's when. We decided that we would kick the Ben & Jerry's habit (just after an ice cream stop at an actual Ben & Jerry's store on Brandon's birthday! Convenient!) going into the next semester, but we would need some other options.
The problem is that we cannot keep ice cream in the house on a long-term basis, because someone (me) finds it too tempting for afternoon snacks. So the answer is to make ice cream when we want it! Though the must-freeze-overnight order keeps me from making it every single day.
I was pleasantly surprised by this no-churn ice cream. I was suspicious of the no-churn trend, because we all know that Pinterest lies! LIES! Just because something looks like something else doesn't mean it tastes like the thing it looks like (you follow me?). But this ice cream was delicious! It is a little denser than regular ice cream (maybe because it doesn't get air churned into it?), but it is sweet and creamy and the cookie dough balls were absolutely delicious. Makes me wanna eat cookie dough right now.
