Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Bars
Break-and-bake cookies are the secret to these incredible ice cream sandwich bars. Simply roll out all the dough to create one giant cookie, then bake, slice and layer it with store-bought ice cream and hot fudge sauce. The best part: dipping the bars into crushed chocolate toffee candy to form a supercrunchy shell.
The French macaron is a simple cookie made with almonds, sugar and egg whites. The recipe here includes green tea powder (matcha), which gives it a delightful flavor. David Myers's complex dessert parfait combines matcha crème, gelée, mochi and macaron with muscovado and vanilla crème. These ice cream sandwiches layer store-bought green-tea and vanilla ice creams on crispy, chewy green tea macarons.
Cathy Waterman's daughter Coco Kislinger launched her business, Coco Bakes, while studying at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris; it's where she discovered that she was both dairy- and gluten-intolerant. She sells sweets like the crisp-chewy gingersnap cookies in these ice cream sandwiches.
