Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches- Chocolate Chip Cookies

"OMG- These are awesome! I mean AWESOME!!! They are pretty easy and really worth the extra effort! Give them a try one of these hot afternoons when you don't know what to do with your kids. They'll love this one. I made my own ice cream in my ice cream maker- it's so much better. If you want to do that, try to make the ice cream several hours ahead or even the day before so it has time to firm up in the freezer. Here are my two favorite ice creams: recipe #375587 and Recipe #375540 They are both very quick and easy to make. I usually make the cookies the day before I make the ice cream sandwiches and freeze them overnight. That way they're nice and hard and easy to work with. The freezing time is not accounted for in the prep time so plan accordingly."

Ready In:
12 sandwiches




  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets (I use parchment paper instead).
  • On medium speed, beat butter until fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
  • Beat in the brown sugar until smooth, 1-2 minutes.
  • Beat in egg, oats, flour, coconut, chocolate chips, baking soda and salt until blended, 1-2 minutes. The dough is very thick and stiff.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets. I use a cookie scoop for this so that they all come out the same. Flatten into 2 inch rounds. You're supposed end up with 24 cookies but I always get 22. If you wet your hands, the dough will not stick to your fingers.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until JUST starting to brown lightly.
  • Cool 5-10 minutes or so on pans (or until you can lift them off easily without them becoming deformed). Transfer to racks and cool completely. At this point, I freeze the cookies. It makes putting the ice cream sandwiches together so much easier and the cookies don't crack or break.
  • You want the ice cream to be JUST softened enough to scoop out. If it's too soft, it's a pain and squeezes out the sides of the cookies to much. Scoop about 1/3 cup of your favorite ice cream onto the flat side of 12 cookies and top with the other 12 cookies. Press down lightly so the ice cream squeezes out to the edges. I use a small butter knife to smooth it out all the way around. Put your sprinkles or whatever decorations you're using into a small, shallow but wide bowl or saucer. Roll the ice cream sandwiches through the sprinkles like a wheel kind of and the sprinkles will easily stick to the ice cream around the edges. See photos.
  • Freeze at least 1 hour (really, I'm serious! You have to freeze them at least an hour or the ice cream will squeeze out the sides when you eat them) and then wrap the 1 or 2 that you haven't eaten (ha, ha) in plastic wrap for a midnight snack.

    not exactly kid friendly, the eating part yes, but not the preparation. I would omit the choc. chips as they do not melt & are as hard as little rocks out of the freezer when the sandwiches are served. The decors are hard to apply & make a mess unless your experienced at making these sandwiches. The spreading of the dough into circles is not easy and very messy, the dough sticks to everything.


I'm a full-time Realtor for Century 21 Graham Realty during the day and at night I'm a wife and mother of one 6 year old daughter, Angelina plus one small dorkie dog (dachshund-yorkie mix) named Petey. I love to cook and experiment with new recipes. I've been collecting cookbooks (I have a few hundred) and recipes for as long as I can remember. I like to buy recipe boxes at yard sales and auctions and peak through them for yummy recipe gems. I've found some really amazing recipes that way. I'm a huge fan of Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware. I've been collecting different pieces for a few years now. I always considered myself a great cook but these pans raise things to a whole new level. I'm planning to post all of my favorite recipes that I've collected over the years. I have all these clippings and pieces of paper and magazine clips that are everywhere. My recipe boxes are packed with these things and it's time to organize the whole mess. I suppose it will take years (did I say years?!?) to get them all posted but it's worth it. So keep checking back to my posts for new goodies. I can't wait to see what long lost gems turn up. I've already run across several of my old favs. Isn't it nice to have all your best recipes all organized right here? I've also been printing them out and putting them in a nice new binder where I can actually find them when I want to make them. I LOVE this site. I have found some of the best recipes EVER right here on 'Zaar. There are some fantastic cooks here and I just want to say "Thank you" to all of you who have made me look like the greatest cook on the planet with your wonderful recipes. I try to make as many new ones each week as I can. It's so much fun experimenting. My DH of 9 years is my guinea pig- he will eat ANYTHING I put in front of him. My little girl... well, she's more of a challenge to please. Not really picky but she doesn't really like meat or stuffing or peppers or mushrooms or.... oh, the new one is onions. I could go on but you get the idea. You probably have or had one just like her. They seem to learn all about these things that they don't like at school. All of the sudden...they don't like something they've been eating for 3 years because their friend "Alyssa" doesn't like it. What a challenge it is feeding these little creatures! That's her and Petey in the picture above. <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" ><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"><img src=""> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><IMG src =""> <img src =""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
