Peach and Cookies Ice Cream
1 1/3 c cream
1 1/4 c whole milk
1 c sugar, divided
3 medium peaches, peeled and chopped
6 egg yolks
1 t lemon juice (or a little more)
3 T peach Schnapps
1 t vanilla
around 15 golden Oreos, mashed into small pieces
Bring the cream and milk and 1/4 c sugar to a simmer. While this is warming, mix together the egg yolks and 1/4 c sugar until thick and pale in color. Temper the egg yolks, and cook the custard until slightly thickened. Strain the custard into a bowl, let cool and then chill.
Cook the peaches with the remaining 1/2 c sugar, mashing them while cooking, until the peaches have released their juices. Cool and chill.
When the custard has chilled for at least 3 hours, strain the peach juice from the peaches into the custard, and add in the vanilla and lemon juice. Toss the peaches with the peach schnapps to prevent the fruit from crystallizing too much, then mix them all in the ice cream maker. Towards the very end of churning, add in the Oreos. Freeze.
