Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies

We have been eating way too many goodies. Or should I say I have been eating way too many goodies. Celebrating stuff for my daughters school and birthdays, etc. I need to apply the three bite rule!

This is one superb ice cream cookie but it tastes great with peanut butter frosting too. Hmmm. Unfortunately, its way to easy to eat more than one.

Not just for -Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup confectioners powder
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and add in yolks. Mix until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and salt. Add confectioners sugar and then cocoa. Finally add the flour. It may be difficult to mix but be patient it comes together eventually. Chill for 1/2 hour and then roll out and cut into desired shapes and sizes. Prick the cookies to keep them from rising. Bake for 8 mintues to 12 minutes depending on desired crispiness.

Peanut Butter Frosting

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 to 2 cups confectioners sugar

Cream butter and peanut butter together. Add in vanilla. Mix in confectioners sugar to desired thickness.

Lori, these look so good and certainly one is not enough!

I've been on an ice cream kick, recently I made a double chocolate ice cream. I put it out last night for dessert and not a scoop was left to photo! Darn, now I've got to make it again... ;-)

Those cookies are a must make for my adventures!!

Lori said...

Lucy- hmmm double chocolate... I can see why there is none left. Yum,

Mary- Chocolate does not kill, it merely sends us to heaven.

Lori the chocolate cookie for this looks just like the cookie you would see in a real ice cream sandwich. My guys would love this one for sure! I have some homemade banana ice cream crying out to be put on these!
