Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice Cream Sandwiches

You want chocolate???? You GOT chocolate!! LOL

These are the biggest hit at my children’s parties….

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Sift together onto a piece of wax paper. Set aside.

Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mixture may look curdled at this point…that is fine.

Add the dry ingredients, stir together. Cover and cool for 1 hour in refrigerator.

Place chilled dough on work surface and divide in 2. Roll each half into a log 2-inches in diameter. This dough can be frozen or you can store in the refrigerator for about a week.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets. Cut the logs into 1/3-inch thick rounds.

Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets and bake 10-11 minutes. These will puff up but will then contract when cooling. Allow to completely cool.

Soften your ice cream slightly and construct sandwiches. Place back in freezer for about an hour to harden.

Classic Baked Custard

Classic Baked Custard

3 cups milk
2 whole eggs
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Arrange 6 (1-cup) custard cups (or coffee cups) in a shallow roasting pan large enough to hold the cups without touching. Set rack in lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In heavy medium-size saucepan, barely boil the milk. In large bowl with a pouring spout, whisk the eggs, yolks and sugar until pale and thick, about 30 seconds. Slowly pour in the hot milk, whisking constantly.

Add vanilla extract and pour mixture into the cups, then place the roasting pan in oven. Fill pan with very hot tap water to within 1/2 inch of the top of the custard. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes. To test doneness, insert a knife 1 inch from the custard’s edge. The knife should come out clean. The center will still be jiggly, but custard will finish cooking after it’s out of the oven. Remove some of the hot water with a baster, then remove custard cups.

NOTE: This may also be baked in a 1 1/2-quart casserole, placed in a larger pan with hot water poured halfway up the sides. Bake for one hour.
