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.

I have a perfect Yeast Roll recipe – I have perfected it, it’s no-knead, and a staple at every holiday dinner as well as several other dinners in between. Not sure how I should add it here, but you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send it.

Seriously I am to meet you at whatever gym. I’m going to be huge following all of these great recipes.

Jocelyn, you seriously should consider open an ice cream shop! 🙂 So many flavors! I haven’t tried cookie butter yet, but I’m heading to Trader Joe’s today to try it! This ice cream sounds fantastic!

An ice cream shop does sound interesting! You must try cookie butter!!!
Cookies in ice cream, wonderful! This looks like it would be full of flavour.
Thanks so much Emma!!
I bet this would taste great on some pecan pie!
Now that sounds incredible. I will need to try that!

This looks incredible, and your photos really show the texture that the cookie butter and the gingersnaps must add to it. I love the hint of brown color, too. Pinned!
Thanks so much Sue!!!
