Chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwich

Summer is the time to indulge in all things ice cream. Milk shakes, floats, sundaes, and of course, ice cream sandwiches are all on my list of desserts to enjoy nowadays. I made intense brownies ice cream sandwiches before, but what about using the classic chocolate chip cookie? There’s a famous store in West LA that brought ice cream sandwiches long before it blew up. The concept is simple: choose your favorite cookie and ice cream and sandwich the two together. Well I’m going old school today using Jacques Torres’ chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream to make my dessert. If you’re looking for an amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe, look no further!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

An old coworker introduced me to this recipe many years ago. I still go back to it when baking chocolate chip cookies, because, yes, they’re that delicious. The combination of cake flour with bread flour results in a cookie that’s not chewy but not crispy either – it falls in a category in between, if that makes any sense. The high quality chocolate chunks make these a little gourmet and served with ice cream makes it even more fancy!

Now this version of the recipe on the New York Times requires you to chill the dough. I’ve made this dough several times, and have never chilled the dough. Apparently, chilling the dough will result in a cookie that has richer taste and will brown more evenly in the oven. I’m usually in too much of a hurry to wait 24 hours before baking my cookies but these still come out great every time. Perhaps, I will actually plan ahead of follow the recipe as is but for now these cookies will do just fine! 

Enjoy with a glass of milk or make it extra special by turning them into chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwiches!
