Cookie Butter Ice Cream – I combined brown sugar and cookie butter into an ice cream and it might be the best homemade ice cream you’ll ever taste.
Cookie butter is my new best friend. We take walks together, talk about our deepest and darkest secrets and we rely on each other for comfort in times of need. It’s true! It is so tasty. Because I have tried it so many ways now, I definitely needed a switch up. That’s where this cookie butter ice cream (brown sugar cookie butter ice cream to be exact) came from.
This ice cream recipe is the ice cream of my dreams. It is creamy, smooth, buttery, nutty, cookie-like and so delicious. I want to have a scoop everyday. It would make me happy. I would have it for breakfast I think. It would be a great way to start the day off.
So if some of you are wondering why in the middle of November I would post this ice cream recipe, it is because no matter when I post it you will absolutely love it. Serve it with your pies and cakes for Thanksgiving or Christmas or have it any time of year and you will for sure enjoy it.

Happily, or maybe unfortunately, I love ice cream all the time. Yours looks seriously amazing.
Thanks so much Elizabeth. I have the same problem happily and unfortunately.
If there’s one thing I’m ALWAYS in the mood for, it’s cookie butter! We are besties. And I think we’d be BFF besties if it were in ice cream form. YUM.
Yes! Isn’t it the best thing ever? And in ice cream form, you will love it even more if that’s possible.

Love LOVE this! And there is never ever a bad time for ice cream. Love that you used evaporated milk! Did you do skim or regular? Love the idea of keeping it a little lighter, but not sure it that would throw off the richness…
I used regular but you could definitely try the skim to cut down on the calories. Let me know how that works out!
