In Which DIY Ice Cream Sandwiches are Made…

Ice cream + cookies = bliss

Despite the fact that the weather in this part of the world continues to be chilly, the success of my ice cream making experiment prompted a little bit of sweet kitchen madness.

I met up with a friend from my days at uni on Saturday last week and I carefully squirreled a quarter-pint of mocha mudslide gelato for her.  And, since I promised her a box of cookies for Christmas (and, alas, we didn’t see each other in December), I went and baked a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  (Incidentally, I tried Beryl’s 65% dark Belgian-style couverture for this batch; absolutely, deliciously delightful!)  Since I had a number of cookies left after packing a box for my friend, a little devilry ensued the following day.

It’s an easy-peasy thing to make an ice cream sandwich.  You just carefully scoop some ice cream into a neat-ish ball with either a scoop or a digger as above and position it between two more-or-less equally-sized cookies.  Smush the lot together.  If you want to save it for later, wrap individual sandwiches in waxed paper and tuck into the freezer.

Otherwise, go pour yourself a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and tuck right in.  Sweet, creamy, crunchy bliss.
