In a medium bowl, combine milk, sugar and salt. Whisk or beat for several minutes until the sugar has dissolved completely. Add cream and the optional vanilla. Give a quick stir to blend. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours, longer is even better.
Just prior to making your ice cream, chop up 15-20 cookies in an irregular manner. Transfer to a bowl. You really want to eyeball how much cookie you feel you're going to need. If that doesn't look like enough, chop up some more. You can never have enough cookie in this ice cream!
Grab your frozen ice cream bowl, prep the machine as you normally would. Follow manufacturer's directions for best results. After pouring my liquid mixture into the machine I let it spin for around 20 minutes, then added the cookies in batches.
Transfer creamy mixture to a clean container suitable for freezing. Cover and freeze until firm, roughly overnight.
