Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

27 Apr

I promised V these ice cream…er, frozen yogurt sandwiches as payment for a recent Friday night cat feeding. She’s the bomb and just so happens to be my neighbor. I whipped up some cookies, which were chewy and oatmealy and delicious, and threw in a little frozen yogurt. Perfection.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
adapted from this recipe
Here’s what I used:
  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • Stonyfield Farms fat free vanilla frozen yogurt
Here’s what I did:
  1. Blend together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Gradually mix into the butter and sugar mixture.
  6. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
  7. Drop on parchment lined sheets by heaping teaspoonfuls.
  8. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes.
  9. Cool completely on wire wrack before sammiching.
  10. Spread about 2 – 3 teaspoons of frozen yogurt on one cookie and top with another – repeat until you run out of cookies (I left the frozen yogurt on the counter to soften as the cookies cooled…made sammiching much easier).
  11. Throw the sandwiches in the freezer so the frozen yogurt firms up again.
  12. Enjoy – they rule!

    Yum Yum! I love the idea of using homemade Oatmeal Cookies to make these icy treats. I've never used frozen yogurt as the filling for ice cream sandwiches. I like how you think 🙂

    Just bought myself an ice cream maker, Erin. I see more sandwiches in my future…. 🙂
