I love ice-cream sandwiches. Love them. During summer time I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and inbetween meals. I love swimming and then grabbing a ice cream sandwhich to satisfy that stomach growling inside of me. These homemade ice cream sandwiches are out of this world good. I love the addition of chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips....I prefer chunks any day to chips. And, this recipe reminds me that summer is just around the corner...

1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks)
1 pint vanilla ice cream
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets, forming 8 cookies. Flatten slightly with a greased glass. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. To assemble sandwiches, place 1/4 cup ice cream on the bottom of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Freeze overnight. Yield: 4 ice cream sandwiches.
