- Q: Can I use reduced-fat milk instead of whole milk?

- A: Yes, feel free to experiment with different types of cookies to make your own unique ice cream flavor.
- Q: How long does the ice cream need to freeze?
- A: At least 3 hours, but you can leave it in the freezer longer if you prefer a harder texture.
- Q: Can I add other mix-ins?
- A: Yes, you can add in chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or other candies to customize your ice cream.
- Q: Can I make this recipe without an ice cream maker?
- A: It’s possible, but you will need to freeze the mixture in a shallow container and stir it every 30 minutes until it reaches the desired consistency.
- Q: How long does the ice cream last in the freezer?
- A: It will keep for up to 2 weeks if stored in an airtight container.

If you want to make your ice cream extra rich and decadent, you can substitute some of the heavy cream with half-and-half or even heavy whipping cream. However, this will increase the calorie and fat content of the recipe.
For best results, make sure your ice cream maker bowl is thoroughly frozen before you begin making the recipe. You can store it in the freezer for at least 24 hours before you plan to use it.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can still make homemade ice cream by freezing the mixture in a shallow container and stirring it every 30 minutes until it reaches the desired consistency. It may not be as smooth and creamy as ice cream made with a machine, but it will still taste delicious!
