- Sugar Cookies
- 3/4 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

- Add in sweetened condensed milk and whisk until combined to make ice cream base.
- Crumble 4-5 sugar cookies into ice cream base and mix well.
- Spoon mixture into loaf pan.
- Chop 1 or 2 cookies and sprinkle over top of ice cream.
