I know, I know- it’s DECEMBER. “Why on earth is this crazy woman sharing a no-churn peppermint cookie ice cream recipe?” In our house, ice cream is supreme over all things, and the combination of peppermint and Oreo cookies is always a favorite too. This simple frozen treat is one all of my people enjoy, and I thought that if you, like us, feel the same, you might want a nibble of this.
But first, let me just tell you that this has been such a special week. Truly. Last week’s release of my first book, Her Daily Bread, found me on the receiving end of SO. MUCH. LOVE. I was over the moon for all of the encouragement, and so many of the heartfelt texts, emails, and DMs had me in tears. Her Daily Bread is truly an outpouring of my heart, and it means the world to see so many people embracing it as such. We won’t talk about the book on this site forever, but I just couldn’t let the moment pass without saying thank you.
In addition, Christmas is just around the corner! My kids have been out of school for a few days now, and I have enjoyed doing all the fun Christmassy stuff: cookie decorating, movies, crafts, and way too much Pentatonix. My kids love to get in the kitchen with me almost as much as they enjoy eating the fruit of that labor, and, as a result, this no-churn peppermint cookie ice cream has been made twice this month. A favorite in our house, this simple frozen dessert is a go-to when our pantry is overflowing with candy canes and cookies from class parties and gift baskets. If you like peppermint and ice cream, this one will definitely be a winner for you.
I hope the next few days are full of the good stuff: rest, joy, and lots of no-churn peppermint cookie ice cream. Don’t forget to slow down long enough to enjoy every bit of it. Merry Christmas to you all!
