My grandmas and mom created this dough (a mix of chocolate chips, cherries and spices, and a combo of their favorite parts of different cookies), my dad made the homemade ice cream to turn them into ice cream sandwiches. We'd eat these sandwiches in the summer heat, each bite cooling us as the ice cream melted down our arms. —Wade Rouse, Fennville, Michigan.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter, gradually adding sugars, until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in egg, vanilla and maple flavoring.
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat into creamed mixture just until moistened (do not overbeat). Stir in semisweet chocolate and white baking chips, dried cherries and coconut.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
To make ice cream sandwiches, spread a scoop of ice cream on bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies. Press down lightly. Wrap each in plastic wrap; freeze on a baking sheet overnight. Yield: about 4 dozen.
