I've been eyeing this recipe for awhile. The photo in Baking from My Home to Yours shows these bars made into perfect ice cream sandwiches. I have a special love for ice cream sandwiches. Maybe I was a boring child (I recently found a kindergarten report card where my teacher said I was too serious) but when the ice cream truck came, I always got the ice cream sandwich. Sometimes when I was feeling wild, I would go with the neopolitan but usually it was just this one:I'm a lot wilder now than as a kid (kind of backwards) especially in my taste of dessert- but I was still excited to make an ice cream sandy.
So, I cut this recipe in half and decided to make round cookies. I put about a tablespoon of dough each into mini muffin cups- and then shortened the baking time to 10 minutes. I was a little worried about getting the cookies out of the tin because Dorie tells you to line the pan with foil, not exactly partical for mini muffin cups. But with the help of a butter knife they came right out.
But then I realized that I hadn't made these thin enough. I tried to make an ice cream sandwich and it looked like this:Not really going to fit in my mouth. So I made an open faced ice cream sandwich.These cookies are perfect on their own but deadly with a little coffee ice cream.
