Day 4 (dessert)

Double Fudge Cookie and Cookies and Cream ice cream sandwiches. My brother bought a giant tub of cookies and cream ice cream in anticipation of his friends coming over. Well for some strange reason these particular boys eat like birds so the entire tub was still sitting in the fridge the day before they were about to leave. I decided to remedy this by making ice cream sandwiches :) The chocolate cookie recipe is delicious- soft, chewy and very very chocolatey. Paired with cookies and cream ice cream, it was absolutely phenomenal.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg and then add vanilla extract. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls* onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. When you pull the cookie sheet out of the oven, rap it onto the counter a few times to deflate the cookies in order to make them chewier. Then cool on the cookie sheets until they are set and firm enough to transfer to wire racks.

*A large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop will yield bigger, more store-like cookies, better for making ice cream sandwiches with. I used a large cookie scoop and baked the cookies for 13 minutes, turning once halfway through.

To make the ice cream sandwiches:
First way (the way that I used, and decided that a different way might be better): Sandwich scoops of softened cookies and cream ice cream between cookies. Individually wrap in plastic wrap and store in freezer. Because the cookies are so soft, it's difficult to sandwich without them squishing...try the second way!

Second way (the way that I came up with that might be better than the first way): Place cooled cookies on a cookie sheet, fitting as many as you can and making sure they aren't touching. Place cookie sheet in freezer and freeze until all the cookies are frozen solid (overnight) . Then sandwich scoops of cookies and cream ice cream between the cookies, individually wrap and store in freezer.
