The base of this Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream contains just four ingredients that are likely already in your fridge and pantry. A half cup of cookie butter is whisked into the base and added to your ice cream maker and just before it’s finished, a cup of coarsely crushed speculoos cookies are swirled into it. The end result is nothing short of what ice cream dreams are made of.

School begins tomorrow and I’m in complete denial. We’ll have a 5th grader, 3rd grader, 1st grader and then ruler of the menagerie begins her second year of preschool next week. That makes the blow a little lighter knowing that I’ll have my Starbucks and Target buddy along for the ride for a bit longer. So if you need me, I’ll be over here drowning my sorrows of another summer gone too quickly with a quadruple scoop of this Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream.
For my birthday a few weeks ago, I received the mother of all ice cream makers. I have had various ice cream makers vying for real estate in my kitchen for years, but this one has already been used so many times that it has yet to be put away in a cabinet. Instead, it’s still reigning in all it’s glory on the kitchen counter. What makes it so special, you ask? The fact that it has a compressor and I don’t have to pre-chill a bowl in the freezer a day before I want to make ice cream. Instead, anytime I feel like making ice cream, it’s ready and waiting. And the fact that I can make batch after batch of this Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream without taking a rest makes my husband endlessly happy.
You see, cookie butter is his favorite. If you’ve never tried it, cookie butter is a food paste made primarily from speculoos cookies, oil, flour and sugar. The ingredients are mixed until it becomes spreadable like peanut butter and even comes in creamy and crunchy varieties. I’ve found it everywhere from Trader Joe’s to Target to my local grocery store. And of course, online. Because I buy nearly everything from the comfort of home. And my Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream contains not only this amazing cookie butter but also the delicious cookies that are used to make it.
The base of this Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream contains just four ingredients that are likely already in your fridge and pantry. And if you’re like me, you’ve soon increase the amount of whipping cream in your weekly dairy order so that you can churn out even more ice cream. You think I’m joking? I don’t joke about sweets. A half cup of cookie butter is whisked into the ice cream base and added to my trusty ice cream maker and just before it’s finished, a cup of coarsely crushed cookies are swirled into it. The end result is nothing short of what ice cream dreams are made of.
Just think of how absolutely amazing this Biscoff Cookie Butter Ice Cream would be as a substitute for the vanilla ice cream called for in my Hot Fudge Ice Cream Pie! Or how it would be the ultimate topping to my Cake Mix Fresh Peach Cobbler or Snickerdoodle Apple Crisp. The possibilities to turn up the flavor the next time you serve dessert are absolutely endless!
