Recap: It’s National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – August 2nd

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Makes about 24 sandwiches
  1 cup Flour
 1/4 teaspoon Salt
 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
 1/2 cup White Sugar
 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  1 each Whole Egg
 1/2 teaspoon Mint Extract
  6 drops Green Food Coloring
  1 cup Chocoloate Chips
  1 quart Chocolate Ice Cream
Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F
Step 2 Combine the Flour, Salt, and Baking Soda in a small bowl and reserve
Step 3 Beat together the butter and the sugars, until creamy*
Step 4 Add to this mixture the egg, food color, and mint extract until completely incorporated
Step 5 Slowly add the flour until combined
Step 6 Gently stir in the chocolate chips
Step 7 Portion the cookie dough by hand or spoon onto a greased, or parchment lined baking tray
Step 8 Bake in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes
Step 9 Allow cookies to cool completely by transfering them to a wire rack
Step 10 Once the cookies are cooled, use an ice cream scoop, or a piping bag, to portion the ice cream
to make your ice-cream sandwiches
*This is best done with a stand mixer, but, of course can be done by hand. I would highly
recommend that the butter is brought to room temperature for at least an hour if you
 choose to beat the butter and sugars by hand.
