Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Feta or Parmesan can be used in this recipe.


  1. Warm cream and milk in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat to 175°F; stir in sugar until dissolved.
  2. Whisk 1/3 cup of hot cream mixture into egg yolks in a bowl. Return all to saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 160°F and is just thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 10-15 minutes. (Do not boil.) Remove from the heat.
  3. Add feta or parmesan and vanilla; stir until cheese is blended. (Cheese will soften but not fully melt.) Pour custard through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard solids. Place bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice water. Stir until custard has cooled to room temperature, about 2-4 minutes. Remove from the ice water. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Whisk custard until blended. Pour half of the custard into an ice cream maker, about two-thirds full. Freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Refrigerate remaining custard until ready to freeze.
  5. Transfer ice cream to a large bowl. Fold in half of the mix-ins as desired. Spoon ice cream into freezer containers. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Repeat steps with remaining custard.
  6. Sandwich ice cream between two cookies. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.
