Ice cream sandwiches

Forget trying to flag down the ice cream truck!  After biting into these delicious homemade ice cream sandwiches, everyone is sure to scream for more.

I had some extra chocolate chip cookies that weren't going to be eaten before they got all crumbly, so this was a perfect solution for enjoying them.

To make these:

Simply spread vanilla ice cream (or any kind you like) on a cooled chocolate chip cookie. 
Smoosh (yes, I said "smoosh") another cookie on top.  
Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze!  

Tip:  it's easier to spread ice cream that you've set on the counter for 5 minutes. 

Although you could use cookies bought in your local bakery, here's my . . .

"Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookie" recipe:

1 c. butter/margarine (or 1/2 of each?!)
1 c. Light Brown Sugar
1/2 c. Dark Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 TBSP Vanilla
2 1/2 c. Flour
1 t. Baking soda
2-3 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. toffee chips (optional)

Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs & vanilla. Beat well. Gently mix in flour & soda. Stir in chips. Chill for at least 1 hour. Bake @ 350 for 10-12 minutes. You can also make these into bar cookies--just bake for about 20 minutes.  Enjoy!!!

***Jessica's notes:
  I probably only use 1-2 cups of choc. chips & don't add the toffee chips
  The original recipe had 1 c. dark brown sugar, so if you want the extra sugar, be my guest.
  Thanks to Connie Sturm for giving me this recipe in the first place! :)


  1. did you just say you had "extra cc cookies... that weren't going to be eaten..."???

    i didn't know that problem could even exist.


  2. Sarah--hmmm, well, I made them for a ladies Bunko night @ church and there were tons leftover. Justin & the girls don't eat copious amounts, so that leaves me. After a few days, it's definitely preferable to eat them with ice cream stuffed in the center! :)
