Cookie Monster Ice Cream Sandwich


  1. 1 stick butter, room temperature
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons granulated sugar
    6 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons applesauce
    Pinch nutmeg
    Blue food coloring
    1 cup all-purpose flour, heat-treated
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
    Vanilla ice cream
    Mini chocolate chip cookies


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, salt, and both sugars until a frosting-like consistency is reached. Add applesauce, nutmeg, and blue food coloring, and mix until combined. Mix in flour and vanilla extract until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Using a ring mold, divide your dough into 4 equal circles and flatten. Wrap in plastic and freeze until firm. Scoop out and soften your ice cream, then flatten it in a baking sheet. Cut out 2 ice cream discs the same size as your cookie dough circles and freeze for 10 minutes. Add your ice cream discs to 2 of your cookie dough circles and top with your remaining dough. Press your mini cookies into the side of the ice cream and enjoy!
