Ice Cream Sandwiches


First we made the cookies.
3/4 C. brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 C. rolled oats
3/4 C. brown flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 C. sliced almonds
3/4 C. white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat well. Add oats, flour, baking powder, almonds, and chocolate and combine. Spoon on to prepared cookie sheet with parchment paper and press down slightly to flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

And this is the genius part, as found on flip flops and applesauce, we sandwiched a blob of vanilla ice cream between two of the cookies. Next we wrapped them in plastic wrap and put them back the freezer for a bit until the ice cream was hard. So yummy!

And next time, I might try adding a little caramel sauce to the inside of the cookie before adding the ice cream. That would go nicely with the white chocolate and vanilla I think.

And if you are in a hurry, go out and buy the cookies! The kids will think it's just as special and it's even easier.

Ooh! You were very very naughty to post this. Luckily I am reading it over my breakfast. Although that probably means I will give in and make some by lunch!

Those sound yummy! I might have to try them...although it is getting too cold here to be eating ice cream often! Thanks for the comment on our experimental kitchens blog. I hope the chicken supper squares work out for you!

For some reason it's never too cold for ice cream in my house. I have 2 ice cream fiends!
