Golden Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Golden Cookies & Cream Ice Cream
Vanilla lovers unite! Cookies and cream has always been one of my favorite ice cream flavors, but as I’ve discussed countless times, vanilla has always appealed to me more than chocolate does. Walking through the grocery store a few weeks ago, I noticed a cookies and cream ice cream made with Golden Oreos, and I immediately thought about how I wanted to try making it from scratch.

After tasting this, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to regular cookies and cream – it really is that good! It definitely is vanilla overload with a full bean, vanilla extract, AND vanilla cookies with vanilla cream inside. It’s this vanilla lover’s dream, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
