Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Zach's birthday is coming up later this week, so I decided to try a new sweet treat I knew he would love, ice cream cookie sandwiches! His favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip so I knew I was going to do some with that, and the rest I did with vanilla ice cream and rainbow sprinkles because what screams birthday more than that. I used our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for the outside of the sandwich. See the recipe below. 

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup softened butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

3 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. sea salt (1/2 tsp. table salt)

2 cups chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate chip)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 7 minutes then take out and hit pan on the counter to make the chocolate chips break apart and spread (optional), then bake for 3-4 more minutes. For these I used a large cookie scoop to make them XL. I don't usually make my chocolate chip cookies this big, but when making them into ice cream sandwiches I wanted them to be bigger to hold even more ice cream. I use an ice cream sandwich making contraption but I couldn't find the exact one online. However, this one is similar. I also saw the idea of getting a pint of ice cream and cutting off the cardboard and cutting it into slices. I haven't tried that, but it looked pretty simple!

You can use any variety of cookie or any flavor of ice cream you like. Also you don't have to put the toppings on the outside, I just thought it was fun. It does make them a little messier to make and eat.
