Since its the middle of summer, we thought this Saturday it would be fitting to give a shout out to everyone’s favorite truck driver, the Ice Cream Man, and recreate one of his famous treats…the ice cream sandwich. Our version combines a heaping scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two of our favorite chocolate chip cookies. The beauty of this dessert is that it will work with any type of ice cream so the possibilities are endless. Thanks Ice Cream Man for the treat inspiration! (Cue the ice cream truck song!)
Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 3/4 cup Butter Flavored Crisco Stick
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate
- 1/2 cup Heath bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together Crisco, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla using an electric mixer. Beat in egg until well combined.
Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together into a separate mixing bowl. With mixer on low speed, carefully add flour mixture 1/4 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Add chocolate chips and Heath to dough, stirring by hand.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 3 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet after removing from oven, and transfer to a wire rack to allow cookies to cool completely.
