Question. Is it embarrassing that I have 2 cookie ice cream sandwich photos in my most recent photo library images? No? Ok, cool.
I'm not a huge sweet tooth, as you know. But lately I'm having a thing about cookie ice cream sandwiches. Cookies and ice cream? Always yes. My little bro and his girl were in town recently, which translates to I gained about 5 extra pounds of fun food--which included these 2 bad boys:
from Diddy Riese, fresh baked cookies, at only a whopping $1.75. DR is a Westwood late-night must-eat with a notoriously long, but worth it, line.
from Manhattan Beach Creamery, the Cream'wich. Right on the Strand in MB so perfect for a sweet treat if you're in the South Bay.
My go-to combo is pretty boring (read: classic): chocolate chip cookies with either chocolate chip or cookie dough ice cream. But it never disappoints.
Maybe I'll try to make some at home, and then I could be more adventurous (strawberry shortcake? red velvet? rolled in sprinkles?). They sound pretty simple to make..
- Bake cookies, whatever kind you like
- Let them fully cool - 30 minutes +
- Add 1 scoop of ice cream (about 1/3 cup) to a cookie
- Sandwich a 2nd cookie on top
- Eat (or wrap in plastic wrap, bag and freeze)!
I guess I'll have to hit up Coolhaus soon, an ice cream sammy place just up the street in Culver City or now in food trucks. Who's with me?!
