I have received an overwhelming response to Cookie Corner. People are very pleased with the switch up from cupcakes to cookies. Last month I chose a scratch cookie, but this month the cookie idea is for all my non-bakers. It's simply assembly and a little freezer time.
The actual recipe is merely a suggestion. You can change the flavors of the cookies or ice cream to anything you prefer. Also get creative with the toppings; use crushed nuts, crushed cookie pieces, or sprinkles as I did.
I made these treats for the kids one night when we had friends over. When I pulled them out, the adults wanted them as much as the kids. So make extra!
recipe (serves 6)
1 dozen prepared sandwich size cookies (I used Pepperidge Farms)
1 half gallon of ice cream
Sprinkles, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. (to roll the cookie in)
On a cookie sheet lined with wax paper lay out six cookies. Taking a standard ice cream scoop (about 1/2 cup), scoop a ball of ice cream onto each cookie. Top with the remaining cookies to form a sandwich. Push the cookie down gently, but firmly enough to squeeze the ice cream to the edges. Roll the edges of the cookie in sprinkles. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for several hours. Once the sandwiches are firm, wrap each cookie in parchment paper.
This can be made several days in advance.
