Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream – Barefeet in the Kitchen

Sweet strawberries mingle with crunchy golden Oreos whispering of summer in this lusciously smooth Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream.

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream

The experience of holding a bowl filled with ice cream strawberry shortcake is one that you won’t soon forget. Initially, my brother didn’t believe me when I told him that we’d be using golden Oreos to make this ice cream.

But, they’re an easy hack to get that fabulous shortbread flavor. Cake doesn’t retain its form well in ice cream, and it often either gets mushy or turns into a brick. Oreos bring wonderful texture to this ice cream, too.

As far as I’m concerned, strawberry shortcake ice cream is the best of both ice cream-loving worlds with its combination of classic strawberry flavors and generous cookies and cream chunks throughout each serving.

I’ve enjoyed strawberry shortcake ever since I was a little kid. Although we didn’t have it often, I can remember my Aunt Judy making it for us when we visited and it always made me grin.

This dessert includes a healthy dollop of nostalgia for me, reminding me of summertime travels and the Fourth of July.

I have more ice cream scoops than I can keep track of at this point and I definitely play favorites. This ice cream scoop does the best job ever of cutting through firm ice cream and still delivers a pretty scoop. It gets bonus points for being one of the least expensive scoops I own as well.

Place the frozen strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until the berries have softened, stirring occasionally. This should take about 5 to 10 minutes.

When the berries have mostly thawed, increase the heat to medium. Smash them a bit with a potato masher, then stir constantly while the liquid simmers until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat and cool completely before placing in the refrigerator to chill. Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Pour into the ice cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Scoop the churned ice cream into a freezer container, adding a spoonful or two of the strawberry sauce along with each scoop of the ice cream. Scatter the cookie pieces throughout the ice cream while transferring it to the container.
