The first week of school is coming to an end. My little one has started Kindergarten and had a rough morning. Day 1, excited, but clung to Dad as she was getting on the bus. Day 2, tearing up, got in line to get on the bus, then made a quick turn to run back to me. Day 3, crying most of the morning, crying to the bus stop and needed me to hold her hand onto the bus. Of course, she has a great day and is super smiley when she gets off of the bus! But with all of the tears this morning, we promised her ice cream when she gets home. Hoping to distract her from her anxiety.
But I have really, really wanted to make homemade chocolate chip cookies and tada – I had a great idea! Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Actually tried a new chocolate chip cookie recipe from Allrecipes and they were delicious! They turned out to be the perfectly shaped, with a thin crispy outside and soft chewy middle. I baked these an extra 2 minutes, but followed the recipe exactly. They made 45 cookies using a 1 inch cookie scoop.
Love the versatility of the Sweet Stackers risers. They elevate cookie racks at the perfect height to save space on the kitchen counter tops!
Once cooled, I transferred the cookies to a staging container to keep them extra fresh. Sweet Stackers neatly organizes the cookies in tiers.
Time to fill the cookies! Place a good round scoop of ice cream in between two chocolate chip cookies (they bottom of the cookies touching the ice cream). I used a smaller container to store 12 ice cream sandwiches separated using a Sweet Stackers tray.
Even though I was in a cool room, the ice cream melted quickly. I suggest placing the container in the freezer and adding one or two sandwiches at a time. But even is some ice cream dripped, the container and trays wipe down easily. The trays also made a nice surface to work on.
There were extra cookies for a later treat!
The kids had a great day at school and were very excited about this yummy summertime treat!
