These require a fair amount of preparation but they're worth it. They're great for entertaining a large amount of company, especially kids. Besides being absolutely delicious they're very easy to serve.
- 100 g margarine or 100 g butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 2⁄3 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 -3 tablespoons rolled oats
- 1⁄3 cup cocoa
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 50 g grated chocolate
- your favourite ice cream, slightly softened
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Beat margarine, sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended.
- In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, including chocolate.
- Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to sugar mixture, beating until well combined.
- Cover the cookie mixture with foil and put in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill, or can be refrigerated for a minimum of 1 hour.
- Prepare round cookie shapes using 1 heaping T of mixture.
- The dough tends to be sticky so its easier to work with if one dips the T of the mixture into flour before forming into a round shape.
- Or alternately, flour one's hands before forming the required shape.
- Flatten each cookie into a 6-7cm circle.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until almost set.
- The cookies should be soft inside and out.
- Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
- The cookies can be frozen at this point and filled later if desired.
- Place a scoop of ice cream on flat side of 1 cookie, cover with second cookie and press lightly together.
- Repeat with remaining cookies.
- Freeze until firm in a tightly sealed plastic container.
- I often add my favourite ice cream which is a homemade vanilla/chocolate swirl with grated chocolate.
These were great! I really wanted to use my chocolate chip cookie recipe but didn't have some of the ingredients which is why I turned to these. The dough wasn't that tasty so I was a little nervous, but the baked cookies are very good. I didn't have chocolate I could grate so I just chopped up semi-sweet chocolate chips which worked great. To form cookies, I used a heaping floured tbsp to get the correct size, floured hands to roll them into a ball, and then used the flat part of a glass (floured as well) and just pressed them flat. My cookies also stuck to my non-stick cookie sheet so I would recommend spraying the sheet first. I got 12 sandwiches out of a batch. They were awesome!
Fun treat on a nice summery day! I made the cookies last night and today DS & I added the ice cream. I got 15 1/2 sandwiches. Wasn't sure if I should grease the cookies sheets (I didn't) and the cookies stuck just a bit. The cookies also spread a little. This was made for Pick A Chef spring 2007.
