I had made some vanilla ice cream last night so it would be ready for today to make chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. So after naps we made some cookies and had our treats after dinner.
Basic Ice cream recipe
2 cups half&half or whole milk
1 cup whipping cream
1/2-3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
I have this ice cream maker...
But just told my hubby that next summer I want this one...
I have a crazy yummy Choc chip cookie recipe that we all just love. They are BIG and oh so good.
Chocolate Chip cookies
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) "unsalted" butter (no substitution or poor results)
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 lg eggs
Dark chocolate chips (I use only about 1/2 pkg)
nuts optional (I do not use)
Place butter and sugars in bowl of mixer and cream on medium speed until fluffy. Scrape down bowl and then add eggs and vanilla. Stir until combined. Gradually add in dry ingredients until fully combined. Add chocolate (and nuts) and stir by hand.
Use 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop and place on cookie sheet. Place in 350 degree oven for 12 minutes. They will be slightly brown on bottom and may look "slightly" soft (raw) in middle but after sitting they will be just perfect.
These are what we made and filled with our ice cream for dessert.
That was some of our indoor fun on this horribly hot day. If you have any ice cream recipes you love and would like to share please do. I LOVE ice cream!
Come on fall (did I just say that?)
