Labor day is finally here. August had too many 100+ days. After many batches of lovely strawberry, chocolate chip, and vanilla ice cream that saw us through the long hot days of summer (and a couple failed batches of peach ice cream, never could get the balance right), I decided to celebrate the end of summer with Ice Cream Sandwiches. I did not want to use just any chocolate cookie, I really wanted a good chocolate cut-out cookie to make them more like the rectangular version you buy in the store. I searched through a ton of recipes until I finally found the right recipe for the cookies here. So worth the trouble.
First you make the chocolate cookies:
And a batch of vanilla ice cream:
And ta-da, you have ice cream sandwiches:
Crazy good stuff.
