Honey Butter Shortbread Ice Cream

Melted butter and honey are swirled into homemade ice cream with crunchy shortbread cookies mixed in.


    Ice Cream
  • 2 cups (500 mL) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (250 mL) whole milk
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) honey
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) sugar
  • ⅛ tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  • ½ cup (125 mL) shortbread cookies, crumbled
    Honey-Butter Swirl
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt


  1. Place the bowl of the Ice Cream Maker into the freezer on the coldest setting for at least 24 hours.

  2. Combine the cream, milk, honey, sugar, and salt in the Classic Batter Bowl and whisk for 1 minute, or until the sugar and honey are dissolved. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until the mixture reaches 45°F (7°C).

  3. Remove the bowl of the Ice Cream Maker from the freezer and attach the assembled clear lid to the bowl.

  4. Set the timer for 25 minutes. Once the paddle starts rotating, pour the mixture into the bowl. During the last minute of churning, pour the crumbled cookies through the shoot.

  5. Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the swirl in the 1-cup (250-mL) Silicone Prep Bowl and whisk until smooth.

  6. When the Ice Cream Maker stops turning, check for doneness. The mixture should be a soft-serve consistency. If needed, add more time until the desired consistency is reached.

  7. Remove the paddle from the bowl and pour the honey butter swirl into the ice cream and gently stir with the Skinny Scraper. If you’re storing the ice cream in another container, pour the ice cream into the container first, then add the swirl.

Cook's Tips:

The ice cream will be a “soft-serve” consistency when it first comes out of the machine. For a firmer, scoopable ice cream, cover the bowl with the Stretch-Fit Silicone Lid and place in the freezer for 2–4 hours.
