Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • ACTIVE: 40 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR PLUS 6 HRS FREEZING
  • SERVINGS: 24 Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
  2. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  6. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  7. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  10. 2 1/4 cups rolled oats
  11. 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
  12. 3/4 pound bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/3-inch pieces
  13. 4 pints vanilla ice cream, softened slightly
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line two 11-by-17-inch jelly roll pans with foil paper, leaving 2-inches of overhang on the short sides of the pan. Spread the almonds in a cake pan and bake for about 5 minutes, until fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer the almond to a bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the baking soda and salt. In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, cream the butter. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat at medium high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg until blended, then beat in the vanilla. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the toasted almonds, oats, cranberries and chocolate.
  3. Scrape the cookie dough onto the prepared pans and pat it out into an even layer. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes, until light brown around the edge. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
  4. Turn the cookies out and peel off the paper. Spread the ice cream evenly over one of the cookies and top with the second cookie. Cover with foil and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours
  5. Using a very sharp knife, cut the cookie into 24 sandwiches. Serve immediately, or return them to the freezer until serving time.
Make Ahead The ice cream sandwiches can be frozen for up to 1 week.
