Einkorn Cookie Ice Cream with Fudge Swirl

One of the things I toyed with getting after finding out I won that Williams-Sonoma gift card while on vacation was an upgraded ice cream maker. I have this one (in blue), but I’ve had my eye on Cuisinart’s for a couple years now. In the end, I decided on a few other things, and figured I’d keep the ice cream maker I have for the time being. And with it, I made some ice cream. Einkorn Cookie Ice Cream with Fudge Swirl.

Einkorn Cookie Ice Cream with Fudge Swirl

I know what you’re thinking: What the hell is an Einkorn Cookie? Why, it’s a cookie made with Einkorn flour! Okay, before I decided to add the fudge swirl, I just liked the way “Einkorn Cookie Ice Cream” sounded. But seriously, they’re Crispy Cocoa Cookies, from Jovial Foods. I actually placed the order when I was still at my dad’s, but it didn’t arrive until a couple days ago. I like the cookies, but as Jay would say, they taste “healthy.” They’re not overly sweet, but you can taste the cocoa (and the Einkorn). I thought it might be fun to crush a few of them and add them to some homemade ice cream.

And I decided to make some homemade fudge sauce, and swirl that through. It was delicious!

Einkorn Cookie Ice Cream with Fudge Swirl
Prep Time 12 hours 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 12 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 C heavy cream
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla bean paste
  • 6-7 Crispy Cocoa Cookies (I used these from Jovial), crushed, but with larger chunks
  • 1/2 recipe Easy Hot Fudge Sauce, cooled

Instructions

Mix together the cream and milk. Whisk in the sugar and vanilla bean paste. Continue whisking until the sugar is somewhat dissolved. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours, or overnight.

Process about 12 oz. of the mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. Once the ice cream is ready, remove it to a larger bowl and place in the freezer, while repeating the process with another 12 oz.

Add the crushed cookies and dollops of fudge according to manufacturer's directions--I had the best luck with adding them once the ice cream had firmed up after about 10 minutes.

Ripen in the freezer for about 2 hours before serving.


It didn’t last long…I ate what was in the dish after taking pictures, and polished off the rest soon after.  Guess I’ll just have to make some again soon!
