  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecan optional
  • 1 cup chopped toasted raisin optional
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup mini coloured chocolate chips

Method

In bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt ; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, and raisins (if using). Drop by 1/4 cupfuls (50 mL) onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake, 2 sheets at a time, in top and bottom thirds of 35°F (180°C) oven, switching sheets halfway through, for 15 minutes or until light brown. Let cool on pans for 3 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely.

Meanwhile, let ice cream soften in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Spread half of the cookies with 1/2 cup (125 mL) each of the ice cream. Top with remaining cookies and press gently until ice cream spreads to edges of cookies. Roll edges in coloured chocolate chips. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm. (Can be frozen in an airtight containerfor up to 1 week.)
