Chocolate Ice-Cream Sandwich Cookies And The Winner.

Agh, Thursday morning. Only two more days of school. And only two more days until the weekend. Did I say how much I love weekends? With this amazing warm spring like weather we have been having the weekends are starting to look even better. I don't mind that much saying good-bye to snow and -20 degree weather and welcoming Robins, flowers, and things that turn green.

I love ice-cream sandwiches. During the summer time that is pretty much all I want to eat. I love the Blue Bunny ones and the Mrs. Fields chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches. Mmm. This was my first time at making good tasting ice-cream sandwich cookies. We love these. The chocolate chip cookie is delicious by itself but eaten with the ice cream makes it all the better tasting. These should be chewy cookies, hard ice cream sandwiches are never fun.




Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches
Ingredients:
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks)
1 pint vanilla ice cream
DIRECTIONS:
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets, forming 8 cookies. Flatten slightly with a greased glass. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. To assemble sandwiches, place 1/4 cup ice cream on the bottom of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Freeze overnight. Yield: 4 ice cream sandwiches.

Growing up in family with 5 brothers and sisters, I am plopped right in the middle. I have an older sister and brother and 2 younger brothers and a younger sister. My youngest brother is Joe. I always remember him being my little brother whom I could easily win when roughing together, having a head full of curls, not as tall as me, humoring everyone, and my little sister's best buddy. Joe is about 4 inches taller than me and would win in any roughing match now. It is kinda hard seeing my little brother grow up, I want him to stay young. But, I have fun with my brother in a new way now. And I enjoy it. I'll always remember him though as that little guy with that cute smile and head full of curls.


Have a great rest of a week and I'll see you next with another yummy recipe and you don't think I'm done with giveaways do you?!
