Cookies ‘n Cookie Dough Ice Cream

ice cream in bowl with nutter butters

Okay, so I couldn’t let Father’s Day go by without talking about my husband. He’s such an awesome dad to Jordan.

He’s so freakin’ awesome that I’m willing to overlook the fact that he can idly sit by and eat his WW desserts and fat-free Breyers instead of joining me in the “let’s see who can eat the entire batch of cookies I made today” contest.

Mel is a natural with kids. I remember one time he joined us at the park during a mom’s club play date. All of us moms were sitting at the picnic table chatting (where else would we be?) and all of a sudden I realize it’s quiet on the playground. I look around and find that all of the kids (ours and some not in our play group) had gathered around Mel and he was telling stories.

Yeah, it’s good I married him. Because that is so not me.

He’s my rock at the end of the day when I’ve hadituptohere with Jordan. He brushes her teeth and puts her to bed.

He makes sure to build “daddy-daughter” time into the weekends, so that I can blog, run errands, or watch endless episodes of RHOOC. Or NY. Or NJ. Or whatever freaks they are showing on Bravo.

He gets Jordan. I totally don’t, so it’s good he does. They have the same personality. And the same laugh.

When she hasn’t stopped all freakin’ day and then wants to do more! more! more! and I know he’s tired, he still goes and plays princesses with her.

And he does all this while working all day, travelling, and saying “NO” to fatty Dorothy-desserts.

I think he’s a robot.

So, of course, on Father’s Day, I had to make a dessert he would actually eat.

Ice cream is always a good choice.

Especially when I use his fat-free Bryer’s as the base.

And then add chopped Nutters, Oreos, and eggless peanut butter cookie dough.

All of the things he can’t resist. Bwahahahahaha!

But it wouldn’t matter. Because it’s fat-free ice cream. So that means this dessert is fat-free!

{It really doesn’t. But that’s what I told myself when I had seconds.}

Happy Father’s Day, sweetie. I love you, and thanks for being Jordan’s idol.

Cookies ‘n Cookie Dough Ice Cream
by Crazy for Crust
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ gallon vanilla ice cream (I used fat-free Bryers)
  • 2 cups cookies (Oreos, Nutter Butters, your favorite kind), roughly chopped
  1. Make your cookie dough: stir peanut butter, sugar, and milk in a medium bowl. Roll into ½ teaspoon sized balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze until firm, at least 30 mintes.
  2. Remove ice cream from freezer and let sit on counter for at least 5 minutes before assembling ice cream. Once it’s soft enough place the ice cream in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add cookies and stir with the mixer until incorporated. Add frozen cookie dough balls and stir just until mixed in.
  3. Place ice cream in a sealable container and freeze until hardened, at least a few hours.
  4. {Try to share with your family. }

  1. Sounds like you have an Amazing husband and Jordan has a Amazing daddy! You are both very blessed.
    Can’t wait to try this dessert, it looks super yummy and I love that it’s fat free too, wink wink. Have a wonderful week 🙂

  2. OMG yum!!! What a lucky fellow :). See, as annoying as it is to need to wait until we take photos to eat–I think it pays to be dating/married to a food blogger 😛

  3. This is an adorable post! And I love your logic that starting with fat free ice cream makes it a fat free dessert. Definitely using that…way too often 🙂

  4. Your husband definitely sounds like a robot. haha. This dessert looks so good!

  5. I love the fact that this is a fat-free dessert … I believe that broken cookies don’t count … therefore, this is probably a calorie free dessert too … at least in my dream world.

  6. fat free ice cream plus goodies still means it’s fat free. totally agree with you! looks so delis, Dorothy!

  7. I could so have seconds of this dessert RIGHT NOW!!
    When my daughter has driven me nuts all day, I put myself in a time-out and my husband will help out. Sometimes I don’t know they just sit and play games together and when I try she’s climbing all over me and jumping around. It’s just fathers and daughters I guess…

  8. This is my kind of dessert!
    I think I’ll just stuff some Nutter Butters into a chocolate kinda ice cream and call it a day.
    Scott likes to play with kids. I like to order kids around (hence my job). We’re the best of both worlds.

  9. ok, your hubby sounds just like mine but he’s all about the all fat option 🙂 love this ice cream idea, i just may use it!

  10. Sounds like you got a winner! 🙂

    This ice cream is amazing! I want some right now!
