Main Street Style Ice Cream Sandwich

One of my favorite ways to spend a snack credit at Disney World is on a big, yummy, chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich on Main Street, USA. If you have ever had one...you know how big and delicious they truly are. Well, you see, I gave up ice cream for Lent this year. I adore ice cream and I have been missing it....A LOT! I was looking for a good way to incorporate ice cream into our Easter dinner. Although I have already made my Carrot Cake Roll, I decided to make more sweets. This occasion calls for Main Street Ice Cream Sandwiches!!


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325° and grease cookie sheets...yes, grease them...and you will need 2-3 cookie sheets.

Sift the flour, baking soda and salt together into a bowl and set aside.


Mix the melted butter and sugars together in a mixing bowl. Once well blended, add in egg and egg yolk. Beat it on med-high until it looks light in color.

When it is mixed, go ahead and add in the flour mixture a little at a time until it is smooth.

After it is all combined, add the chocolate chips. I used the Spring chips because it was Easter, but like any chocolate chip recipe, you can use whatever you'd like. I think a peanut butter chocolate mix with chocolate ice cream would be super yummy!!

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to drop the dough on the cookie sheet. You will need to space them very far apart. The final product will be about 4 inches big, so you need lots of room for them to spread out and get comfy while they are in the oven.

Bake them in the preheated oven for about 16-17 minutes. Do not try to take them right off of the sheet when you take them out, they will fall apart. After they have cooled for about 5-10 minutes, you can transfer them to a cooling rack. I didn't have enough room, so I also used plates.

I recommend placing them into the freezer before you scoop the ice cream onto them. I pair mine up with good matches for size and put them into baggies. Two of mine didn't even fit...monsters!!

Once the cookies are cooled down quite a bit and are frosty cold, you can make the sandwiches. Look at how big these cookies are! This is a large Fiestaware plate!!!

Scoop 2-3 ice cream scoops onto the bottom cookie. Hidden Mickey!

Smush the top cookie onto the sandwich and if you choose to use sprinkles just roll them into them or use your fingers to drop them onto the ice cream.

Eat them immediately or you can wrap them in plastic wrap and place them into a gallon freezer bag to eat later (which is what I did). Once again...I hope everyone has a great Easter! I cannot wait to eat ICE CREAM!!!
