vanilla ice cream(for making ice cream sandwiches)
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, malted milk powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix well, then set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the sugars and softened butter. Mix on medium speed until it forms a grainy paste. Add the eggs, vanilla and corn syrup. Beat at medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips. Mix just until combined, being careful not to overmix.
Scoop the dough into 36 dough balls. Press mini chocolate chips into the top of each cookie dough ball.
Chill the dough for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the dough balls onto a cookie sheet lined with a non-stick baking mat at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then transfer the cookies to a surface lined with parchment paper to cool completely.
Once the cookies are cooled, scoop ice cream onto a cookie, then top it with another cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
Wrap the ice cream sandwiches in wax paper and freeze until serving.
How to Easily Fill Ice Cream SandwichesThere are two options for making ice cream sandwiches:
Freeze the cookies before filling. That way when you press the ice cream between two cookies, the cookies will not bread.
You can also soften the ice cream, spread it in a 9×13 pan and freeze. Then use a cookie cutter the same size as the cookies to cut circles of ice cream to easily sandwich between the cookies.
