Ice cream sandwiched between two chewy, dark chocolately, oatmeal cookies. These have summer written all over them!
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Cream butter and sugars with a hand mixer or in the bowl of your stand mixer. Add egg, corn syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Mix until well combined. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and oats and continue to mix till well combined. Stir in dark chocolate chips with a spoon.
Drop a tablespoonful of dough onto a parchment paper-lined or ungreased baking sheet. Use your fingers to mound the dough into a nice ball shape. Repeat with remaining dough to fill sheet, leaving a couple of inches between each cookie.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheets for a few minutes. Then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
To assemble ice cream sandwiches:
When cookies have completely cooled, remove ice cream from freezer and allow to sit out for a few minutes to soften slightly. Flip one of the cookies upside down and place a big spoonful of ice cream on the cookie. Press the ice cream down a little with the spoon. Place a second cookie on top of the ice cream and press together so that ice cream reaches edges.
Sprinkle your decoration of choice around the edges of the ice cream, pressing lightly with your fingers to make it stick if necessary. Quickly wrap the ice cream cookie in plastic wrap and place in freezer.
Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream.
These bar cookies are fun, festive, and super quick and easy to whip up. Spread them around the office and watch the atmosphere instantly brighten. And really, you don’t have to wait for a birthday.
