Inside-Out Cookie Sandwiches
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use about half a bag)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix sugars, butter/marg, shortening, vanilla, and eggs in bowl. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips.
Drop rounded balls of dough on cookie sheet and cook for 10 to 12 minutes.
Scoop ice cream onto back of one cookie, add another cookie (a lid!), and enjoy.
Comments from the cook: While any ice cream will work, we tried this with Edy's Thin Mint Cookie half-the-fat ice cream. Incredible, I tell ya.
Originally adapted from the Betty Crocker recipe for "Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookies"
(I used semi-sweet chips instead of white, which the original recipe calls for...hence the Inside-Out name.)
