Homemade ice cream that doesn't require an ice cream maker or special attachment for your mixer? You bet! I combine my cream cheese ice cream with swirls of blackberry jam and crushed spiced biscuit cookies for a delicious almost-homemade treat.



  1. Place an 8-inch square pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. Combine the jam and blackberries in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the blackberries soften and the jam becomes liquidy, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Beat the cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and salt in a large bowl with a hand-held mixer until smooth. Set aside. (Wash and dry the beaters.)
  3. Beat the heavy cream in a large bowl with the hand-held mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream.
  4. Spoon half of the mixture into the frozen pan. Set aside some of the cookies to sprinkle on top. Sprinkle the cream mixture with half of the remaining crushed cookies and fold gently to incorporate the cookies in the cream. Spoon half of the jam on top and swirl with a wooden skewer or chopstick. Repeat the process with the remaining cream, jam and cookies. Sprinkle the reserved cookies on top.
  5. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours but preferably overnight. To serve, let the ice cream stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes before scooping into serving bowls.
