Summer decided to show up in New York just as all of us fashion people are planning to make room for our Fall wardrobes. Now we are worrying about keeping cool. I plan on rewarding myself and my friends with a delicious treat after this ridiculously hot & humid week! Could there be anything better than a cookie ice cream sandwich? I think not!


Mini Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ingredients

Makes 12

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with rack in center. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add sour cream, egg, and vanilla; beat until smooth. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture; mix in 1 cup chocolate chips.
  2. Using 1 rounded tablespoon per cookie, drop mounds of dough, about 1 1/2 inches apart, onto two baking sheets. (You’ll have 25 to 30 cookies.) Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  3. Scatter remaining chocolate chips on a plate. Place about 2 tablespoons ice cream between 2 cookies, bottoms facing in; press gently. Roll the sides of each sandwich in chips. (If ice cream is melting, place sandwiches in freezer until firm enough to roll in chips.) Transfer sandwiches onto baking sheets. Freeze until firm, at least 2 hours; then wrap individually in plastic. Freeze up to 2 weeks.
