There is only one response to this picture:
Why didn't I think of this?? There's no reason for cookie dough ice cream to exist when you can just sandwich a slab of ice cream between two beautiful hunks of cookie dough.
Seriously, these look beautiful. Make your own before the summer is out!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
Prep Time: 40 min. Chill Time: 3 hours. Difficulty: Easy to Intermediate
Recipe by In Katrina's Kitchen
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups ice cream, softened
1. Microwave butter and sugars in large microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until mixture is melted and smooth. Stir in milk, vanilla and salt. Add flour; stir until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
2. Line 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, with ends of paper extending over sides of pan. Press 1/2 of the dough into pan until smooth and even. Place a second layer parchment paper on top on the dough and repeat with remaining dough. Freeze for 30 minutes up to 1 hour.
3. Remove from freezer. Carefully remove the top layer of cookie dough by lifting the top layer of parchment paper. Gently spread the softened ice cream over the bottom layer of cookie dough still in the pan.
4. Peel the parchment paper from the second layer of cookie dough and place it smooth side up on top of the ice cream. Cover with foil or plastic wrap. Freeze 2 hours or until firm. Cut into 16 bars. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Store in freezer.
If you make these, I would LOVE to hear about how they turned out.
