Biscoff Ice Cream
2 cups heavy whipping cream
4 cups milk
8 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Biscoff Spread
12 Biscoff Cookies (optional)
In a medium saucepan combine cream and milk. Warm over medium heat until milk mixture starts to be foamy on top and hot.
In a separate bowl combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk until well combined. Mix in Biscoff spread. This mixture may be a little thick. If it is too thick to properly stir mix in 1/4 cup of the hot milk mixture.
Once Biscoff is mixed into the egg mixture you want to temper the egg mixture. While stirring egg mixture pour 1 cup of the hot milk into the egg mixture. Mix well.
Take the egg mixture and slowly pour it back into the saucepan with the remaining hot milk. Make sure you stirring the milk while you pour. Continue stirring and cooking the mixture for several minutes until the mixture becomes thick and will coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and pour into a heat proof bowl.
Let cool at room temperature for a few minutes. Take some plastic wrap and place it right on top of the custard. This will ensure that you don't get a "crust" on top of your custard. Place bowl in the fridge and let cool for several hours or overnight.
When ready to make ice cream pour cooled custard into a blender and blend for 30 seconds. I honestly don't know why this helps but it seems to make the ice cream smoother and creamier. Now pour the custard into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. When your ice cream is almost done crumble the 12 Biscoff cookies into the ice cream and let it process for a few more minutes. When the ice cream is done you will have little bits of cookies throughout your ice cream. Try and not eat all the ice cream by yourself. This will be tough! Enjoy!
