Ben and Jerry's Copycat Recipe

Makes 1 Quart

2/3 cup Oreo cookies, coarsely minced
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons peppermint extract

Ben and Jerry have been making Oreo Mint ever since they opened their first store in the gas station. it was their top-selling flavor for a long time and was only recently nudged out of first place by Heath Bar Crunch. Place the cookies in a bowl, cover and chill. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl till light and fluffy, 1-2 min. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking till completely blended, about 1 minute more.
Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add in the peppermint extract and blend again. Transfer the mix to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 min before it is done, add in the minced cookies, then continue freezing till the ice cream is ready.
