Errr it’s one last holiday recipe for you! I decided not to squeeze in a peppermint recipe, so we will just celebrate Christmas in July. This No-Churn Molasses Cookie Ice Cream I just could not wait to share with you.

I am in love with this ice cream because it reminds me of my favorite Ben and Jerry’s pint; Oatmeal Cookie.

You wanna know the best part of this ice cream? Well there are a few things. First, it is LOADED with soft-baked molasses cookies. It’s also no-churn, which means you can throw all the ingredients together in a mixer and in about five minutes, the batter is ready to freeze.

Molasses (Gingerbread) Ice Cream

I am not quite sure if you have leftover gingerbread (or molasses) cookies, but if you do, this is the perfect excuse to make this ice cream! The thing is, your cookies need to be really soft, none of those hard gingerbread men. Why? Because that’s what makes this ice cream so awesome. Did I mention it is loaded with cookies?

If you don’t have any extra cookies left, you can make a batch of my soft-baked molasses cookies, just leave off the brown butter glaze.

I suppose if you did have hard gingerbread cookies, you could grind them up in a food processor and then add them to this ice cream. It would still be good I’m sure!

Over the summer, I went crazy for ice cream! It’s been awhile since I shared a recipe with you. Although I do love my KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker, there is nothing quite like a no-churn ice cream. It’s always on the soft side, which is the way I prefer my ice cream!

You might also need a storage container. I found the perfect Ice Cream Container, this summer, which holds about 6 cups of ice cream. You can also use a metal loaf pan like the one in my pictures, and just cover it with aluminum foil.

This ice cream is a tad on the sweet side, so you should add one tablespoon of molasses at a time, and taste the batter first! Don’t forget to save some extra cookies to put on top, strictly cosmetic of course.

    I don’t have a working oven, so what type of store bought cookie would you recommend that I substitute?

    Thanks, Deborah

    1. Beyond Frosting

      No problem Deborah! Honestly for ice cream you could use either a soft baked cookie like pepperidge farm molasses cookies or you could use a crunchier cookie like Gingersnap. The soft baked would be close to what I used for this recipe.
