Copy Cat Ben and Jerry's Oreo Mint Ice Cream

Copy Cat Ben and Jerry's Oreo Mint Ice Cream
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped oreos(I made mine a little finer because I have a soft serve ice cream really is not supposed to have "chunks" in it)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c sugar
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1.5 cup milk
  • 1 TB peppermint extract
  • a few drops of green food coloring if desired...I dont do colors but it would be pretty if you dont mind them
Place the cookies in a bowl, cover and refrigerate. Whisk the eggs in a mxing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.

Pour mixture into a pot and heat over medium heat until the temperature reaches 145. Turn off heat and stir keeping the temp around 145 for 3-5 minutes. This will kill any thing bad from the raw eggs.
Place in a bowl and refrigerate over night or at least 3-4 hours.
This step can be omitted if you are confident in your raw eggs

Return to mixing bowl and whisk again until well combined, add the peppermint extract and blend again. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, add the chopped cookies.
