There is so much I love about summer.  The beach, picnics, lazy days and ice cream!  Of course ice cream is good any time of the year, but doesn’t it taste especially good in the summer? These Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookies that I made recently really hit the spot!  They are easy to make and homemade is always better, right?

8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
9. Remove cookies from oven, but leave cookies on pan for about 7-10 minutes. Remove cookies and allow to fully cool on iron racks.
10. Add about 1-2 tablespoons of ice cream to a bottom of one cookie. Spread it evenly and layer another cookie (bottom touching ice cream) to create a sandwich. Repeat until you have your desired amount.

This is so a nice treat and homemade to boot – I know the cookie you are talking about but have not looked for it in a long time … this one sounds so much delicious…Moreover, you cookies looks soft and chewy.
