Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Sandwiches
Makes about 8 ice cream sandwiches
|2||squares (1 ounce each) semisweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped|
|1/2||cup butter, softened|
|1-1/2||cups all-purpose flour|
|1/4||teaspoon baking soda|
|Softened vanilla or mint chocolate chip ice cream*|
*One quart of ice cream can be softened in the microwave at HIGH about 20 seconds.
- Place chocolate in 1-cup glass measuring cup. Microwave, uncovered, at HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until chocolate is melted, stirring after 1 minute; set aside.
- Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in chocolate. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl; add to butter mixture. Form dough into two discs; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. (Dough may be refrigerated up to 3 days before baking.)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets. Roll one dough disc between two sheets of waxed paper to 1/4- to 1/8-inch thickness. Remove top sheet of waxed paper; invert dough onto prepared cookie sheet. Score dough into 3X2-inch rectangles. Do not cut completely through dough. Cut excess scraps of dough from edges; add to second disc of dough and repeat rolling and scoring until all of dough is scored. Pierce each rectangle with fork.
- Bake 10 minutes or until set. Let cookies stand on cookie sheets 1 minute. Cut through score marks while cookies are still warm. Remove cookies to wire racks; cool completely. Spread half of cookies with softened ice cream; top with remaining cookies. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze 1 hour or up to 2 days.
