make them

Friday, August 13, 2010

Well, that week pretty much flew by. I seriously don't know what happened to our summer. I do know driving has been my number one activity.

Ice cream with any cookie is good. Chocolate chip, Chocolate, Sugar all sound good but I always wanted to try to make one like the ones in the store.
The recipe calls for margarine and mentions that margarine makes for a chewy, soft cookie. I never buy margarine and only ever bake with butter. I think the butter worked fine.
This was sort of fun. You know, like crafting in the kitchen. Sort of like using your rotary cutter and cutting fabric. With a bonus that you can eat all the extra trimming.
Have the kids poke holes in the top with a fork. Or a pin if you are really in the sewing mood.
Make sure you leave a sweet note so they won't eat a top. Or a bottom. Cause you know, a topless ice cream sandwich just wouldn't be cool.
Now this was a challenge. Finding the half gallon. You know, the rectangular one. My store had one brand and 3 flavors. Funny how I didn't notice that no one really makes it like that anymore until I actually went looking for one.
{c l a - charlie libby andrew, just in case you were wondering}
Assembly was fun. More scraps... this time ice cream, as you sort of have to trim the side so the ice cream fits in nicely. I then wrapped each one in parchment paper. And stuck them back into the freezer.
They were pretty big... so I cut them in half. (Meanie. Of course, they wanted more.)
Found some really great wooden buttons for my sweater. Plan on sewing those on this weekend and casting on for this.
All right... have a fabulous weekend!

  26. These look fantastic! I've always wanted to make my own ice cream sandwiches.

    I remember when ice cream always came as a rectangle, in the flimsy cardboard boxes with a floppy lid. God forbid you ever left it out on the counter too long, it would melt everywhere! Only the 'fancy' ice cream ever came in the sturdy tubs.

    Thank you for this, can't wait to try it!

  27. How soft were the cookies? Wonder if you could try softening any ice cream a little bit and squish them into shape and refreezing?

    ReplyDelete

  37. OMG that looks amazing! DELICIOUS!

  38. Lovely. It might be more work, but you can always line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and let your ice cream soften and put it in there. It might be easier than finding the one rectangular package of ice cream.
