I just discovered the perfect chocolate chip cookie for icecream sandwiches. Normally I'm a chewy gooey in the middle cookie kind of girl, but icecream sandwiches are a completely different story. You know what I'm talking about, right? These are just the right amount of soft and chewy, but substantial enough to sandwich icecream in the middle.
Icecream Sandwich Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
Cool completely before making icecream sandwiches.
