Ice Cream Sandwiches

Here is a cookie I guarantee everyone will love! The cookie is soft and chewy and not too sweet, making the ice cream filling a perfect pairing. Great for children and kids at heart.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, cold and cubed
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 square bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

1. Mix flour, cocoa and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
2. In an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, salt and vanilla until fluffy.
3. Add dry ingredients and chocolate to butter mixture and mix until combined.
4. Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface to 1/4" thickness.
5. Cut with a linzer cookie cutter and place on parchment lined baking sheet, spacing 2" apart.
6. Bake in a 350ºF oven for approximately 10 minutes.
7. Once cookies are cooled, ice 1/2 of the cookies with a very good quality vanilla ice cream and press the rest of the cookies on top to form the sandwiches.  Freeze cookies for about 30 minutes before serving.
