Ice Cream Sandies. Can you hear summer calling?

May 29, 2016

 

 

We love cookies in our house, but really, who doesn't love a good cookie? A good cookie can go so many ways - they can be a snack, a gift, a base for a dessert. They are good right out of the oven, sneaked out of the freezer and in an ice cream sandwich. The ice cream sandwich becomes almost a staple in our house in the summer - I keep cookies frozen and ice cream on hand so that I am ready for pop in guests or just a treat at the end of a long day.

Ice Cream Sandies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cream together
1/3 c. sugar
1 c. b. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. margarine or butter
add in 2 eggs, 1 at a time
add
2 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa
1 tsp. b. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
mix together, and add white and chocolate chips - as many as you like**
bake at 350 until set, about 10 minutes.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cream together
1 c. shortening
1 c. b. sugar
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, 1 at a time
2 tbsp water
1 tsp. vanilla
add
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp b. soda
1/2 tsp salt
mix together and add chocolate chips - as many as you like**
bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, until lightly brown.

**To make the ice cream sandies, I decided to make mine small, a little more than a bite, so that we could do lots of ice cream combos and everyone could try a few. I used about a teaspoonful of cookie dough on my parchment lined baking sheet to get the size I wanted, but you could do whatever size you like)
I've found the best way to make the sandies is to freeze the cookie, bring the ice cream out to soften, fill the cookie and then refreeze. As for the ice cream filling, I like to use a really good ice cream and lots of flavours. Any flavour works - we like chocolate and vanilla (classic choices in our house) but, coffee with the chocolate cookies is divine, chocolate chip cookie dough with the oatmeal cookie was delish, so really, whatever catches your fancy and pairs with your cookie will make you happy, can't really go wrong!
