When to add edible cookie dough to ice cream

Edible cookie dough needs to be added at end of the churning process when making ice cream.

The base of vanilla ice cream needs to churn for about 20 minutes until it’s thick like soft serve ice cream.

Add the edible cookie dough by using a melon baller scoop. Only fill the scoop about 1/3 full of the melon baller.

As the ice cream churns, add a small amount of cookie dough using the melon baller until you’ve added all of the cookie dough.

This should take a few minutes to add in all of the cookie dough.

If you’re wanting to add chocolate chips into your cookie dough ice cream, add them in after the cookie dough has been mixed into the dough.

Once your chocolate chips and cookie dough are completely mixed in, your ice cream is ready.

Freeze your soft serve ice cream for a few hours so it firms up. Serve your cookie dough ice cream with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
