For those of you not familiar with a shookie, it’s basically a milkshake with crushed cookies. I had my first shookie at a Cookie Farm(?) at one of my local malls. It was ages ago, so I’m not even sure if the name of the place was actually Cookie Farm, but the place definitely had the name cookie in it.
Anyway, I got a chocolate chip cookie shookie, and I immediately became enamored. Since I wasn’t willing to drive to a Cookie Farm whenever I was fiening for a shookie, I decided to take matters in my own hands, and make my own!
You can use any type of cookies, just as long as you’re able to crush or chop them up in a blender or food processer. You’ll also need vanilla ice cream, though you can use any flavor of ice cream you like, even gelato(if you’re fancy like that); I currently prefer using Trader Joe’s FrenchVanilla Ice Cream. And of course, you need milk–what’s a milkshake without milk? Add a cup of crushed cookies, six to eight scoops of ice cream, and half to a whole cup of milk into your blender; adjust the amount of milk to your consistency preference (more milk for a thinner shake, less for thicker). Mix well for about a minute, making sure all ingredients have been blended well. Then enjoy!
Oh yeah, if you use ginger snaps, you may want to use only half a cup of crushed snaps since the flavor of these cookies can be potent. I know this, since I made a ginger snap shookie earlier this month, and I wish I would’ve used less cookies!
