It’s hot here. Most people don’t really get how hot and sticky it gets here in Minnesnowta, viagra sale discount I mean Minnesota. Probably because we usually get a bad wrap for being the coldest place in the country during the winter. Well, site occasionally, there and quite frequently in the past few years we have been both the coldest place in the USA and the hottest place.
We are a land of extremes. Maybe that is why Minnesotans are such a temperate people. At least that’s what I like to think! Anyways, yes, we say anyways instead of anywho, it must be a Midwest thing. But again, anyways, back to it being hot here.
It’s HOT and when it’s hot and the humidity is above 75% I start to crave cold, sweet treats. So I decided that I needed to make my hubby’s favorite. Ice cream sandwiches. Even though he’s not here to enjoy them at the moment. Too bad for you, Hubs!
So anyways, here is my take on an American summer classic treat.
Cocoa-Nut Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup butter; room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift the flour, salt, coconut and baking soda in a medium bowl. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale yellow and fluffy, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the egg and vanilla extract and lower the the speed, slowly add the flour mixture so you don’t end up wearing the flour. Do NOT over mix. Add the chocolate chips and fold to combine.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto un-greased cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes until cookies are just golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Once completely cool, take a medium ice cream scoop and scoop vanilla bean ice cream onto half of the cookies. Smush the remaining cookies on the ice cream and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the freezer and enjoy at your leisure.
