Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice Cream Sandwiches

A big scoop of your favorite ice cream in between homemade chocolate chip cookies. You can’t go wrong with homemade ice cream sandwiches for a potluck!

Last year, I made these for our annual 4th of July block party and they were an absolute hit (so much so that I have to make a double batch this year!).  These are great for any party in any season!

Ingredients:

1 gallon of your favorite ice cream

1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

12 ozs. chocolate chips

Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.  Add the flour mixture and mix well.  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Make sure you do not over bake the cookies.  Let them cool completely.

Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it thaw slightly for about 5 minutes (it needs to be a softer consistency so it can spread well without breaking the cookies.)  Put a big scoop of ice cream in between two cookies and gently press the cookies together.  Wrap in plastic wrap (Glad Press ‘n Seal works really well!) and put them in the freezer until potluck time!
