Recipe taken from here
When I saw this recipe my eyes lit up like a child's on Christmas morning. I was so excited at the thought of incorporating ice cream INTO a batter, and not sandwiching it in-between two cookies, doubling your cookie portion, and then if you were feeling glutinous and wanted two or three well that makes your total cookies six... that's a lot. This however was genial. Such a smart idea. Oh I couldn't wait, especially because my mom's boyfriend had also come home with a tub of vanilla ice cream, what are the chances?
To be honest, I still haven't tried these cookies :(. They have been sitting in my freezer along with some other cookies. I did however bring them to a friends party, and they got eaten up within seconds. Just like me, when people heard there was ice cream IN the cookies, they immediately became like deer in a headlight. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. I cannot wait to try them, I just haven't mustered up the will as of yet. I'm sure whenever I try them though they will be just as delectable (probably even more mind you), then I am imagining.
