Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

● 4 T. butter

● 2 T. sugar

● 2 T. brown sugar

● 1 T. water

● 1/2 t. vanilla

● 1/2 cup + 1 T. flour

● 1/4 t. salt

● 1/4 t. baking soda

● 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

● 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1. Put milk in saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat. (This takes about 12-13 minutes.)

2. While the milk is heating, whip yolks & sugar in mixer for 2 minutes. Dribble hot milk into eggs, a few tablespoons at a time, keeping the mixer going constantly.

3. Pour the egg/milk mixture back into the pan and put over medium-low heat. Stir with a wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula until the mixture reaches 170 ̊F. Immediately pour through a strainer into a bowl or large container.

4. Allow to cool to luke warm (about 30 minutes) then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.

5. While base is cooling, make the cookie dough by placing the butter and sugars into mixing bowl and beating until light and fluffy. Add water and vanilla.

6. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, chocolate chips and walnuts. Add to the mixing bowl and turn on a low speed, mixing until the ingredients are just combined.

7. On a parchment lined baking sheet, place bits of the cookie dough and place in freezer until frozen.

8. When you're ready to freeze the ice cream, stir heavy cream & vanilla in and freeze in an ice cream maker. (This takes about 20 minutes.) After 20 minutes, drop in the bits of frozen cookie dough. Process for no more than 1 minute.

9. Spoon the ice cream into a freezer container and harden-off for at least 1-2 hours.
