This weekend my neighbors Chris and Ryan had a cook out and I offered to bring a dessert. In light of the fact that the high was 96 degrees this weekend in Greensboro, I thought homemade ice cream sandwiches would be a perfect treat.
I made Martha Stewart’s recipe for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and squished coffee ice cream in the center. You can choose your favorite cookie recipe and ice cream to meet your fancy. Martha’s recipe was especially good because it has a half teaspoon of course salt in it. You can taste the salt and it provides a great contrast to the sweet of the chocolate and ice cream. I also use a 1.5 inch ice cream scoop to measure out each cookie. That way they all end up uniform.
