Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned ice cream sandwich? Ice cream sandwiches are a year round favorite of young and old alike. Store bought is fine, but homemade is always much better. I like to use a small amount of corn syrup and olive oil in the dough as it prevents the cookies from becoming hard when the sandwiches go into the freezer. These cookies are tasty on their own as well.


2 1/3 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Room Temperature Butter

2/3 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

½ Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Light Corn Syrup

1 Egg

3 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

12 Ounces Chocolate Chips

5 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream

Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In another bowl stir together the butter, sugars, olive oil and corn syrup until combined. Add the egg and vanilla until blended to the butter mixture. Next add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and combine. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a ¼ cup measurer drop the dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. If you want to smaller cookies use two tablespoons of the dough. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Remove the baking sheets from the oven to wire racks and cool for 5 minutes. Using a spatula transfer the cookies to racks to completely cool. Repeat until all of the dough is used. Now you are ready to assemble the sandwiches. Let the ice cream soften in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Spread ½ cup of the ice cream on the bottom of one cookie and place a second cookie (bottom side down) on top of the ice cream. Repeat until all of the cookies are used. Wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap and freeze for 2 hours. If the sandwich cookies have become too hard then let them sit at room temperature before serving. Makes 8 large ice cream sandwiches
