Try This At Home: Giant Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
Time: 1 hour + freezing time
Vegan: This cookie recipe is already made vegan. To make it an ice cream sandwich, use our chocolate brownie chunk ice cream.
Gluten-free: To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free flour instead of all-purpose.
- ⅔ butter (we used vegan butter)
- ¾ cup coconut palm sugar or brown sugar
- 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup
- ¼ cup applesauce
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 ⅛ cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- 2 litre tub of Four All’s chocolate chip ice cream
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together in a stand-mixer. Add the applesauce, vanilla and maple syrup.
Mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
Take the lid off of the ice cream tub and flip it over so that the label is on the bottom of the counter. Take half of the cookie dough and fill the lid with the dough until it is evenly spread across it. Then, flip the lid over onto the baking sheet and continuing to use the spatula, spread the dough onto the baking sheet trying hard to keep the circular cookie shape.
Repeat this again for the second cookie, and place onto a different baking sheet. Place both of the baking sheets in the oven to cook for 25 minutes, alternating the rack that they are baking on half way through.
Once the cookies are finished baking, allow to cool for 20 minutes, then place in the freezer for a few hours.
Once the cookies are finished freezing, run a spatula around the inside of the 2L tub of ice cream and take the entire chunk of ice cream out of the tub, keeping the shape of it. Moving quickly, turn the roll of ice cream onto its side and grab a hot knife. Cut through the ice cream at about an inch width, this is going to be used as the center of the ice cream sandwich.
Place one cookie on it’s back so that the flat side is facing towards you, then place the circle of ice cream on top. Put the second cookie, flat side facing towards the ice cream on top of the ice cream and gently press down. Place back into the freezer to freeze for a few hours.
Use a hot knife to slice the giant cookie ice cream sandwich like a cake and serve to friends or family, enjoy!
