Dulce De Leche Dessert Sandwiches


Makes 6 servings


1 pint (2 cups) Dulce de Leche ice cream
3/4 cup pecans
12 chocolate cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Remove ice cream from freezer; let stand at room temperature 10 minutes or until slightly softened.
  3. Place pecans in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake 8 minutes or until golden and fragrant; set aside to cool. Finely chop pecans; reserve.
  4. Spread 1/3 cup ice cream onto flat sides of 6 cookies. Place remaining cookies, flat sides down, on ice cream; press cookies together lightly. Smooth or remove excess ice cream, if necessary. Wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap; freeze 30 minutes or until firm.
  5. Press pecan into ice cream around edges; rewrap in plastic. Freeze additional 30 minutes.


Ice cream sandwiches should be eaten within three days. After three days, cookies will absorb moisture and become soggy.
