Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies are breathtaking. Prepare yourself for a slice of heaven! No kidding. Who ever heard of adding ice cream to cookies? Isn’t it a delectable idea? All I can say is it works. It really works. It works so well you will not be able to stop eating them. A-D-D-I-C-T-I-V-E!!! Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies start with a really good Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and then you subtract a few ingredients in order to add the ice cream. Yum with a capital “Y!!!”

I know by now you’ve probably thought that I had fallen off the face of the map. Well, just about. For over three weeks we’ve had spotty, irregular or non-existent Internet service. 🙁 On top of that, we’ve moved! So for the past three weeks I have packed and packed and packed for 8-10 hours a day every day. Then add in a week of making multiple trips to our storage shed, taking some yard and tool stuff to a friend’s airplane hangar, and moving some of our stuff into a rental house, and we’ve been B-U-S-Y! We’re building a home which will take about six more months to complete. Meanwhile, we’re in a cute, little, rental house that a friend is allowing us to rent without being locked in to a set amount of months. We’ve been here since Saturday and we’ve been trying to get Internet hooked up and FINALLY after several starts and stops, it’s finally going. Yay! Now maybe I can get caught up on all my blog posts.

I was really intrigued by this recipe the first time I saw it in my BlogLovin’ feeder. By eliminating an egg and a little butter and substituting ice cream instead, cookies turn out with wonderful texture and taste. I had to try it! Since making these cookies I’ve tried several other baked goods with the idea of using ice cream and everything turns out delectably.

Last month our church’s Children’s Minister asked me to bake lots of cookies for the Vacation Bible School we were hosting in a local park. I was only too glad to oblige and decided these luscious cookies would be on the menu along with my BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Meltaways. Everyone who tried Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies (including me) thought they were amazing. If you concentrate you can tell that there’s ice cream in the cookies, but if you didn’t know beforehand you might not be able to figure out the secret ingredient.

Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies are special. If you’re looking for a fabulous cookie to make anytime you need a chocolate (or ice cream) fix, this is the cookie for you! But be prepared to have to make another batch right away, because everyone will want 3 or 4 or 5 or…. more of these lovely cookies.

      They are wonderful, Kim. I’ve used the idea in cakes, too, and they turn out just as good.
