    7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped raisins, optional
  • ASSEMBLY:
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 bottle (7-1/4 ounces) chocolate hard-shell ice cream topping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in oats and, if desired, raisins.
  • Shape into fourteen 1-1/4-in. balls; place 2-1/2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 11-13 minutes. Cool on pans 3 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • To assemble ice cream sandwiches, place 1/3 cup ice cream on bottom of a cookie. Top with a second cookie, pressing gently to flatten ice cream; place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream. Freeze until firm.
  • Remove ice cream sandwiches from the freezer. Working over a small bowl, drizzle chocolate topping over half of each sandwich, allowing excess to drip off.
  • Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; freeze until serving. Wrap individually in waxed paper for longer storage.
