Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Children can help bake and make these delicious, simple ice cream desserts. These cookies are soft and chewy to prevent hardening in the freezer with vanilla ice cream or gelato in the center.

Servings: 12 each (1.5 tablespoon measurement for each cookie prior to baking)

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup                    Light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup                    Granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup                    Butter, unsalted at room temperature
  • 1 ea.                      Egg, large
  • 1 ½ tsp                  Vanilla extract
  • 2 cups                   All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp                      Baking soda
  • 1 ¾ tsp                  Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp                      Salt
  • 1 ½ cup                 Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups                   Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, garnishing
  • 32 oz                     Vanilla ice cream or vanilla gelato

Instructions:

  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. In a large mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat both sugars and butter on medium low speed until light and fluffy. Scrap the sides of mixing bowl using a rubber spatula.
  2. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Repeat scraping the sides of mixing bowl.
  3. In three increments, add flour mixture to mixing bowl on low speed until fully incorporated.
  4. Mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours in your Sub-Zero
  5. Preheat oven to 325F on Convection mode and line two sheet trays with parchment paper.
  6. Prior to rolling cookie dough, let sit at room temperature for about twenty minutes.
  7. Using your hands, roll cookie dough into 1.5 tablespoon balls and place on sheet trays.
  8. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown on edges. Let cool on cooling rack.
  9. For each ice cream sandwich, place one scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato in between two cookies. Gently press two cookies together; ice cream or gelato should spread to edges of cookies. Using the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, roll each sandwich edge into chocolate chips.
  10. Eat immediately or save for later by freezing in an air-tight container.
