The first album I remember getting really, really excited about was The Velvet Rope. I’ll give you a minute with this video where she rips off her shirt and somehow makes a push-up bra classy to figure out why. I perfected a clothes-on version of the “I get so lonely” dance. My recognition of The Velvet Rope for what it is—brilliant—was a rare moment of good taste in my youth. Unfortunately, the next album I got really excited about was River of Dreams. As young people, isn’t it our job to know what music is cool? I just wasn’t cool; I was no Janet.
The only TV show I truly loved growing up was Jeopardy, I rode the school bus much later than was socially acceptable, and I had horrific taste in ice cream. As a person who now takes ice cream very seriously, that last one breaks my heart the most. There’s a particularly florescent, fat-free (why do those always go hand in hand?) Baskin Robbins flavor called Daiquiri Ice that has exactly nothing delicious in it, which I was nonetheless mysteriously fond of. “Fond of,” is putting it mildly.
I’m making amends for the past with this ice cream. Pretty, saavy ladies are into this ice cream. It won’t surprise you then that it’s adapted from the Joy the Baker Cookbook. It’s a classic, with a couple changes for the better (berries!). Also, I hope you’re sitting down, there’s gluten-free cookie dough in this ice cream. A recipe for gluten-free cookie dough is dangerous knowledge, but I think you can handle it.

- I wrote the recipe by measuring the flours by weight (grams), so that’s the most accurate. I did my best to approximate the measurements in volume (cups) for folks who don’t yet have kitchen scales, but isn’t gluten-free cookie dough a great reason to finally get one?!
- If you’re averse to corn syrup, you could use 1 T or so of vodka in its place. It’s there to help the texture of the finished product, not to sweeten.
- I use Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips and Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract, both of which are currently gluten-free.
- I ended up cutting my cookie dough balls in half before adding them to the ice cream.
