With fall officially among us, I wanted to reminisce on the warmer months with one of my favorite treats: ice cream cookie sandwiches. Nothing reminds me of summer more than ice cream. Combined with a classic chocolate cookie (I used the KitchenAid Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe) these sandwiches are sure to be a hit! I use a double cookie scoop to make these–we’re all about big cookies here. When they're completely cooled, it's time to assemble. I used Talenti non-dairy dark chocolate, but go for a classic vanilla if you please. Press that second cookie on top and squeeze slightly until the ice cream meets the edges without oozing out. Roll in some chocolate chips you've desired and serve immediately. Enjoy these awesome treats!
