Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I'll be honest.  I totally lucked out in college with the roommate situation.  Freshman year I was paired with Ursula just by a random dorm room assignment.  We talked on the phone before we arrived at school discussing important items such as who bring a tv and who would supply the fridge.  You know - items essential to a successful freshman year. :)  We have stayed great friends for the past 12 years or so, even rooming together for 3 more years after the first year.  Ursula moved after graduation and I needed to find another roommate. A friend-of-friend had an opening and I moved in with her.  Heather and I became fast friends and to this day she's my best friend and Jack's Godmother.

What does all this have to do with ice cream sandwiches, you say?  Well it was Heather who had the genius idea to make these little gems one night.  We baked up some cookies and slathered the ice cream between them.  I remember distinctly that we had a hard time waiting for them to hard-freeze and had a very messy (but delicious) dessert.

I made a double batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies so that I could send some with our new neighbor's daughter who was heading back to college.  The Chewy already makes a fairly large batch so I definitely had more than enough to go around.  With some vanilla bean ice cream already in the freezer, I thought these would be a great treat to have around!

(I am only listing ingredients, no amounts, because it will depend on what you want to have. I only made 6 sandwiches but you could make more or less.)

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Vanilla Ice Cream (about ¼ cup per cookie sandwich), softened or easily scoopable/spreadable

1. Place softened ice cream on the bottom of one cookie and place another cookie on top. Press gently on top cookie to help ice cream spread to the edges. Lay on a baking sheet and continue to desired amount.
2. Place baking sheet with sandwiches on it in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight. Wrap individually in freezer or parchment paper and store in an airtight container.

Haha I did not have good luck with my freshman year roomate!! I really think my school completely disregarded the surveys the sent out before we went to school. Oh well, I survived!

Your cookie sandwiches look awesome! I might need to whip up some cookies and homemade ice cream this weekend :)

Do it! I've loved having these in the freezer.  I also know that my roommate situation was not the norm! :)

We definitely lucked out and I couldn't have asked for a better roommate and life long friend! I just wish you and Heather would have made these bites of deliciousness when I came to visit you guys!!!

There was something extremely influential that I merely said there.
The older you get, the harder the struggle against this nasty-looking
dimpled area becomes. As a bonus, you'll not only smooth out the cottage-cheese look, you'll also drop weight and become more toned
all around.
