For fun, make ice cream sandwiches. This cookie has some brown sugar in it and is a little chewy. It does not break easily and is great for filling with ice cream.

The trick is to freeze the cookies first, then put more than enough ice cream. It will come out the sides. Trim.

Use full fat ice cream, as low fat ice cream is pumped with air and will collapse.

Freeze again at least for two hours before serving.
