It's been a week of hot, sticky weather...more to come...

It's Ice Cream Sandwich time...Another wonderful recipe from Epicurious.com. Hopefully these will save me from melting.....


Bake and freeze the Triple-Chocolate Cookies a day before filling them with ice cream.

For convenience, you can make the homemade ice cream up to three days in advance. Purchased strawberry ice cream (softened slightly at room temperature until spreadable) also works in these sandwiches.

1 1/2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup plus
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup whole milk
4 large egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 frozen
Triple-Chocolate Cookies

Combine strawberries, 1/3 cup sugar, and corn syrup in medium bowl. Using potato masher, mash until puree forms; let stand 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring cream, milk, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar to simmer in heavy medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Using electric mixer, beat yolks in medium bowl until thick and pale yellow, about 3 minutes. Gradually beat in hot cream mixture. Return mixture to saucepan. Stir over medium heat until custard thickens and forms path on back of spoon when finger is drawn across, about 4 minutes (do not boil). Strain custard into large bowl. Cool. Stir in strawberry mixture and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate custard until cold, at least 3 hours and up to 1 day.

Process custard in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer ice cream to container; cover and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours. (Can be prepared 3 days ahead. Keep frozen.)

Place 1 frozen Triple-Chocolate Cookie flat side up on work surface. Place 1/2 cup ice cream atop cookie. Using offset spatula or butter knife, gently spread ice cream to cover cookie; top with another cookie, flat side down, and press gently to adhere. Repeat with remaining ice cream and cookies, making 8 ice cream sandwiches total. Wrap and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours or overnight.
Let ice cream sandwiches stand at room temperature 5 minutes before serving.
Makes 8.

Quick queston for you as I would like to make these and did not see a comment about this on epicurious reviews of this recipe.

After freezing, how hard do the cookies get? I have had trouble with other ice cream cookie recipes because the frozen cookies were so hard that it was very difficult to eat.


the cookies don't get "rock hard"...they keep a little maliable....and edible. ;-)
