super important. Making delicious cookie ice cream sandwiches. I might be addicted. They are so good! Even David, who doesn't have 1/3 of the sweet tooth that I have, loves them. As long as I make his with cookies and cream ice cream.
There are a few handy tricks to keep in mind when you're making these, or you'll end up with a cookie you can't bite through, or ice cream squishing out on to your hands.
Underbake your cookies. Try this recipe. Our Best Bites rules! They should be barely set around the edges, and still super gooey in the middle. If you don't do this, your cookie will be too hard to bite through when it's frozen.
Pre-freeze your cookies. After they've cooled, put them on a plate in a single layer, till they're nice and solid. That way when you put your ice cream on them they won't break.
Soften your ice cream. Don't let it melt or microwave it till it's all runny, but let it set at room temp for about 10 - 15 minutes, so you can spread it on your cookies without too much effort. No one tell my dad, but sometimes I microwave ice cream, he hates that!
Freeze the entire finished product, individually wrapped in plastic wrap, till the ice cream is solid again. If you're impatient and don't let them sit, ice cream will come out the sides everytime you try to take a bite. Then you'll have it all over your hands instead of between your cookies.
Eat it. It will be delicious.
|My personal favorite. Plain old vanilla with a chocolate chip cookie. Yum.|
|David prefers the cookie, plus cookies and cream. Whatever floats your boat. |
