Google+ That Flour Child: Strawberry Golden Oreo Ice Cream

Strawberry Golden Oreo Ice Cream

One of the things on my 20 before 21 list was to make actual ice cream, from custard.  Not just cream and sugar in a tin with ice and salt around it, I wanted to take my time and actually see what a difference it made.  Also, I wanted to use out Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker Attachment, seeing as I never have and we've had it for many years.  Typical.  So I used to be in love with this blizzard flavour they had for a very limited amount of time, it was a strawberry blizzard but with Golden Oreo chunks in it.  Friggen delicious let me tell you.  So my boyfriend and I decided to recreate it.
I used this recipe from Martha Stewart for the strawberry ice cream and then just added frozen crushed Golden Oreos once the ice cream was made and before putting it in the freezer to harden.

8 large egg yolks
1 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
2 cups skim milk
2 cups heavy cream
4 cups diced strawberries

We started by making the custard.  Mixing the egg yolks, 1 cup of sugar, the salt and the skim milk.  I was extremely intimidated by this, but it wasn't too scary, I just stood over the stove like a slave until it thickened.  Then you set it on ice, and stir in 2 cups of heavy cream slowly.

We let this sit until it was cool, but ended up putting it in the fridge overnight because the first time we tried to make the ice cream it never hardened.  Once we left it in the fridge over night, it worked perfectly.
We chopped up a bunch of strawberries, poured the 1/4 cup of sugar over them and mashed them up a bit and left them to sit.

When the ice cream started to thicken, we added the strawberries.  

When the ice cream was done (the attachment starts to click and get stuck a bit, time to turn it off) we added the crushed up frozen Golden Oreos (we froze them because we didn't want them to get soggy).  Pour the ice cream into a air tight container and leave it in the freezer until it gets hard.  Scoop it an enjoy :)

Also, because I didn't want to throw out 8 egg whites, I used them to make these Pretty Pink Meringues.
