Cookie Sandwiches

 These cookie sandwiches are a nice dessert treat for hot summer days. I made them fairly large but you could use a teaspoon to drop the batter on the pans and you would end up with cute little cookie sandwiches!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats, quick cooking kind
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • Vanilla ice cream, or your choice of flavor
  • Toasted coconut
Method:
  1. In a medium size bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.
  2. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats and coconut.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and blend well.
  5. Drop by tablespoon on parchment lined pans. Flatten just slightly.
  6. Bake at 350ยบ for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden in color. These cookies will spread during baking and you will end up with approx 3" cookies.
  7. Once cookies are completely cooled, place a scoop of ice cream on a cookie, spreading it out with a knife, then place a second cookie on top.
  8. Press down slightly so the ice cream is flush with the cookies.
  9. Roll the sides in toasted coconut.
  10. Wrap individually and freeze until firm.
  11. Yield: 18 cookies = 9 sandwich cookies

    1. I think it would be okay to leave out the coconut and add chocolate chips. Sounds good too.
