Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream

Are you as tempted by Circus Animal Cookies as I am?
I was grocery shopping and saw a package of 
these pretty pink and white critters.  I usually don't buy
them because I can't leave them alone, but we were
going to Lake Powell and the kids do like a lot of treats.

Then I got inspiration to try the Circus Animal Cookies out
in a batch of ice cream, so I surreptitiously hid them in 
the back of the pantry so they wouldn't be consumed.

It turned out to be a great ice cream flavor.

As a matter of fact, most of it had been eaten out
of the freezer before it was time for dessert, so I
was lucky to get any photos.

Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream
(This recipe has been sized for a 2 Qt. ice cream maker, double it if you want more.)

1 1/4 C. white sugar
equivalent of 4 pasteurized eggs (Egg Beaters)
1/2 C. marshmallow cream
2 C. heavy whipping Cream
1 C. milk
2 C. crushed Mother's Circus Animal Cookies
red food coloring
additional Circus Animal Cookies

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, Egg Beaters and marshmallow
cream on low.  Then stir in the whipping cream and milk.  Add a few
drops of red food coloring to make it pink if desired. 

Place the cream mixture in your ice cream freezer container.  

I love the Cuisinart 2 Quart Ice Cream freezer because it is big
enough to really get the ice cream frozen.

When ice cream is almost frozen, sprinkle in half of the crushed cookies.
Let the ice cream freezer mix them in.  When it is frozen as hard as
the freezer can make it, remove the paddle and hand stir the remaining
cookies into the frozen ice cream, being sure to stir all the way to 
the bottom.  Add additional crushed cookies if desired.

Place the ice cream in the freezer several hours until solid.

Garnish with additional cookies.

Hi Jacqueline,
What a great idea! I love animal cookies.. When I see them at the market it reminds me of my children when they were young. They loved them.. That was their treat.

This is the cutest idea! I have a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and I love it. I've been making ice cream for my family all summer but have never seen a recipe quite like this. I am definitely going to try it. I have a feeling this one will make me Very popular! : )

Jacqueline, what a great concept! I love the color of the cookie infused ice cream. It was nice to see you and Jean the other day. I had a college piano teacher we used to bring animal cookies too --she adored them, and we hoped we could bribe her by bringing them to her. Joni

So fun and colorful! I want to try this!
