  • 2 Drop dough by slightly less than tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Expert Tips

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches are easy to make. For each sandwich, place 1 heaping tablespoon slightly softened ice cream between bottoms of 2 cookies and press sandwich in center to spread ice cream. Freeze uncovered on cookie sheet about 1 hour or until firm. Wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap, and store in freezer in a plastic freezer bag.

In place of the butter, you can use 1/2 cup vegetable oil.

For a softer cookie, use only 1/3 cup butter, softened, and 2 eggs; omit milk.
