Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream sandwiches

One of my favorite things to make in pastry school was ice cream. My favorite kind we made was peanut butter and jelly. So good. I knew when my husband and I were registering for our wedding we had to add an ice cream maker. And thanks to my husband's co-worker we got one!!! :) It took us awhile to make ice cream,  but I've finally made it. Man, was it good!!! I was a little worried that it wouldn't be quite as good as when I made it in school, but it was just as yummy! Very smooth too and so easy to make. My husband wanted to start off with your simple vanilla, which to me is a little boring on it's own, so then I decided why not make chocolate chip cookie sandwiches? My favorite!! I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and sandwiched them with the ice cream. Now that this ice cream worked so well I can't wait to make more. Although, I will have to start hitting the gym hard, you know since ice cream is so healthy and all ;)  I hope you all enjoy this and if you have an ice cream maker..go make some.

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
3 cups heavy cream, or 2 cups heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk
¾ cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pour 1 cup of the cream into a medium saucepan and add the sugar and salt. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the saucepan and add the pod to the pot. Warm over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.
Remove from the heat and add the remaining 2 cups cream (or the remaining 1 cup cream and the milk) and the vanilla extract.
Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator. When ready to churn, remove the vanilla bean, rinsing and reserving it for another use, and then freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can find the recipe to my favorite chocolate chip cookies right here: Chocolate Chip Cookies



After making the ice cream and freezing over night I put one scoop of ice cream in between two cookies and rolled it in chocolate chips. I then froze them again overnight and enjoyed the heck out of them the next day! They're so yummy.

Oh YUM! You have so many good recipes on here! I love the theme of your blog- and how fun that your hubby cooks with you! I do most of the cooking in our house, but my husband surprised me with a cooking class for the both of us this Thursday so I'm excited to see what that's like! I'm following you back and looking forward to reading more!

Those look SO yummy! They remind me of a place near UCLA I used to go to everytime I was that way. Fresh cookies and fresh ice cream only a $1. They had a ton of choices but i always got chocolate chip with vanilla bean :)
