Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Right now ice cream appears to be the only way I can make it through these hot summer days.

Yesterday it was the high was 115 – yikes. Oh and we are also setting records here in phoenix. It hasn’t fallen below 90 degrees in 7 straight days (with potentially 2 more). The previous record is from 2003… All I can say is that even waking up at 4:30 to fit my running in doesn’t really beat the heat!

So enough about the weather, lets get to the good stuff – this ice cream!

I’m sure I had you at mentioning “cookie dough” in the title. Who doesn’t like to eat cookie dough, let along have it mixed into their ice cream?

I think this would be a great ice cream to treat kids after school or on the weekends to keep them happy and cool. But I think I know more than a few adults that would like it just as much, if not more.

The cookie dough is simple to make and doesn’t contain any eggs – so its totally safe to eat. I used mini chocolate chips in mine, simply because I thought they would look cuter, but use whatever you have on hand.

    holy cow! 115?! I’m sure this ice cream definitely gave you the much needed cool down you craved! I love cookie dough ice cream, it’s my favorite for sure :) the chunks of cookie dough scattered throughout the ice cream is my favorite part because you always get a little bit in every bite! i love how big the chunks of cookie dough looks in yours.

    I have to admit, I don’t miss that heat! I love the excuse to eat extra ice cream though :) Hope the weather has cooled off a bit in the last few days!
