Ice cream sandwiches have gotten a lot of love lately. People are updating the old concept to include all kinds of fancy ice cream flavors and swapping out the classic chocolate cookies for everything from oatmeal to peanut butter to snicker doodles. And while there's nothing wrong with that, especially when it's done right, I have a personal soft spot for the treat that comes from the ice cream truck.
A good ice cream sandwich is as much about texture as it is about flavor. As a unit, the sandwich needs to be soft enough to eat easily while staying structurally intact. Luckily these are the things that our Chocoholic columnist, Yvonne, kept in mind with this recipe. The result? Old school ice cream sandwiches, all the way.
