Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches- Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe by Realtor by day
READY IN: 50mins




  • 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.
