Step 1: You will need
- 1 packet of oreo cookies
- 750 ml single cream
- 150 g caster sugar
- 5 medium egg yolks
Step 2: Crush Oreo Cookies
Take a packet of Oreo Cookies and either roughly chop them or place them in a freezer bag, tie the top and then bash them with a rolling pin, until they are broken up with a few larger chunks still remaining, and then put to one side.
Step 3: Make a basic custard
Separate 5 eggs, keeping the yolks in a small bowl and discarding the whites. Whisk them all together until they are well beaten. Now mix the egg yolks in a saucepan with 750ml of single cream and 150 grams of caster sugar. Heat on a medium heat, stirring frequently until all the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is almost at the boil.
Remove from the heat and pour into a cold bowl or jug, and leave to cool fully.
Step 4: Transfer mixture to Ice Cream Maker
Once the mixture is cool transfer everything into your ice cream maker. Check your manufacturers instructions but for this quantity you will usually need to put the machine on for roughly 30 minutes. After half of the required time pause your ice cream maker and add your crushed Oreo cookies. Restart the machine to continue until the end of the allotted time.
Alternatively, if you don't have an ice cream maker, you can simply pour the mixture into a tub and bung it in the freezer. However you will need to stir it regularly as it sets, which will take up to 5 hours.
Once the time is up and the ice cream has set, simply scoop and serve, and you should have one happy customer!
