No Churn Oreo Ice Cream- Vanilla or Chocolate

I have more ice cream makers than any home cook should own; 2 frozen bowl varieties and 1 compressor type. I love to make ice cream the labor intensive way, making a thick creme anglaise base, chilling it, churning it and all that jazz, but no churn ice cream is simple, easy and  something every one already has the equipment to do. There are hundreds of different flavors you can make, but today I wanted Oreo Ice Cream, and I wanted it badly enough to make it in two different varieties; Vanilla and Chocolate.

No churn ice cream uses 3 basic ingredients; sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream, and alcohol.  The sweetened condensed milk takes the place of the sweetened base. The whipped cream brings the airy, creamy texture. The alcohol prevents the mixture from freezing solid as a rock. Freeze it, and your result is creamy, scoopable, and melt in your mouth delicious.

My favorite brand of sweetened condensed milk to use is Eagle Brand; it seems to be consistently the thickest of all the brands I purchase and makes for a truly luscious ice cream as a result. 

Vanilla No Churn Oreo Ice Cream
Ingredients:

2 cups of whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon dark spiced rum
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (or extract)
18 crushed Oreos (big and small pieces, I recommend Double Stuff)

Method:

Whip your whipping cream to soft peaks. Place your Oreos in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until you get both small and large pieces. Gently fold the whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk together. Add the rum, vanilla paste, and cookie crumbs and gently incorporate thoroughly. Put into a plastic container with a tight seal. Place the container into a ziplock bag and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. The addition of the plastic bag prevents freezer burn and also helps to keep the ice cream from freezing rock solid. Scoop and enjoy!


Chocolate No Churn Oreo Ice Cream
Ingredients:

2 cups of whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s Special Dark)
1 tablespoon dark spiced rum
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (or extract)
18 crushed Oreos (big and small pieces, I recommend Double Stuff)

Method


Whip your whipping cream to soft peaks. Place your Oreos in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until you get both small and large pieces. Sieve your cocoa powder and thoroughly combine it into your sweetened condensed milk. Gently fold the whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk mixture together. Add the rum, vanilla paste, and cookie crumbs and gently incorporate thoroughly. Put into a plastic container with a tight seal. Place the container into a ziplock bag and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. The addition of the plastic bag prevents freezer burn and also helps to keep the ice cream from freezing rock solid. Scoop and enjoy!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of

Copycat Star Crunch

I really love Little Debbie snacks but I very rarely have them. I don’t like eating things that are full of unpronounceable ingredients and preservatives. Plus, I greatly prefer to make things myself. My favorites have to be Oatmeal Creme Pies and Star Crunch. I am still looking for a perfect Oatmeal Creme Pie copycat recipe, but this recipe for Star Crunch is absolutely perfect. These cookies are a fantastic combination of caramel, chocolate, and crunchy crisped rice cereal. They keep in a sealed container for a week, or in the fridge for a month. Next time you crave  Little Debbie Star Crunch, try your hand at making your own! Ingredients: Recipe Credit: Adapted from Stella Parks 1/2 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon vanilla paste 3 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use a chocolate for baking; some versions of “eating” chocolate contain too much fat. When your combine this chocolate and the caramel together, the
