Alexz’ Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Ice-Cream Sandwiches: a recipe by quornflour

#nomnom #food #foodie #cookies #recipe

My niece Alexz came to visit me for her spring break. It was fun exploring some new spots with her and just hanging out.

We cooked a bit, she cracked me up with her disbelief that corn could be cooked without a microwave (it really seemed corn specific, everything else made sense). She reminded me of her mother who about 10 years ago, when she learned I did not have a microwave she offered to buy me one, in the event it was an expense thing.

One of the things we made were Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Ice-Cream Sandwiches. Alexz made the cookies, which were delicious, even if the 4H method of cracking an egg was crazy funny…

Here are the ingredients for the cookies:

  • 1 Cup Vegetable Shortening
  • 2/3 Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1¼ Cup Unbleached White Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter Chips
  • 1 Cup Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips

 

  • Start out by heating your oven to 370◦
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together shortening and white sugar until fluffy
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract, mixing thoroughly
  • Mix in brown sugar
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking soda
  • Slowly add to the wet ingredients and mix forming a dough
  • Add chocolate and peanut butter chips, mix until they are more or less evenly distributed
  • On a cookie sheet lines with parchment paper, place 2 tablespoon balls of dough about 2-3″ apart
  • Bake for 9 minutes
  • Transfer from baking sheet to cooling rack and let cool

If you want to make ice-cream sandwiches, simply put about 2 tablespoons of ice-cream between 2 cooled cookies and enjoy!
