Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tags: ,

Good Thursday everyone!!  I am practically jumping out of my old computer seat dying to share my latest cookie with you 🙂  A week or so ago as I was making the boys an ice cream shake, I started thinking…..hmmm I wonder how vanilla ice cream would work out  in chocolate chip cookies?  Well, can I just tell you it worked, and it’s over the top INCREDIBLE!  I used a creamy all natural vanilla ice cream by Breyers.  I really think any vanilla ice cream would work just fine.

So, what you’ll taste is a delicious very “vanilla-y” flavored chocolate chip cookie.  They are soft and perfect.  Can’t wait for you all to try this recipe, it was so much fun creating it.  I took like 5000 pictures, bear with me I had to share a ton of them 🙂

Have fun baking!!

Here’s the line up of most of the ingredients.  Your basics, plus….ICE CREAM!

Cream your butter and sugars as usual.

Mix in your large eggs.

And your pure vanilla.

Here’s where the fun begins, get a nice big scoop of your favorite Vanilla Ice Cream.  Measures as a heaping 1/2 Cup.


Our options are endless, can you imagine some other ice cream flavors?  Can’t wait to experiment!

Add in your dry ingredients.

And your favorite bag of chocolate chips 🙂

Mix until just combined.

Voila’ ready for the cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 9-11 minutes.

Love it!


Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons pure vanilla
  • Heaping 1/2 Cup vanilla ice cream (frozen from container)
  • 4 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 bag chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until fluffy.  Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.  Add in ice cream until combined.
  2. Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix.  Add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips; mix until just combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are cooked through.  Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.  Serve with a marashino cherry on top 🙂

3-4 dozen cookies

    I just made these. I only used 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla. And I used Cookie Dough Ice Cream (that’s what we had and I figured it certainly couldn’t hurt these cookies!). They are great! They are perfectly soft, but not cakey and look exactly like yours.
    Thanks, Jenny.

    Would this work with a brownie recipe? What substitutions would need to be made if you used a boxed brownie mix? Or one from scratch? They look awesome!

    btw, these look delicious. but i made these just like your recipe and i don’t know how yours came out like that with 4 cups of flour. mine came out looking like cake balls. not even edible. i’m gonna cut he flour considerably and try again. just wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

    Oh my gosh, I just made these, and they are soooo good! They look just like the picture and taste great! I used Extra Creamy Vanilla, and they definitely taste like both chocolate (from the chips) and vanilla (from the ice cream) at the same time.

    I make these all the time! We keep them in the freezer… because they are ice cream cookies! They never last more than a day though! I do most of my cooking off of your blog, sometimes two things at a time, I just keep my laptop in my kitchen. Let us know when you put out a cook book I want one! Love you blog and all your yummy recipes!

    strackmom says:

    Hi..these sounded wonderful and I made them over the weekend. However, when I just scooped my dough on the parchment lined baking sheet…they did not spread at all and look like a mound of cookie dough….the next pan I gently pressed to flaten slightly and they looked “almost” as good as yours. Both tasted great…I wonder why the difference in look, though…any ideas or suggestions?
