By themselves, both the cookies and the ice cream are incredible, but when you combine them into one...I don't even know where to begin describing the deliciousness! The flavors are a perfect seasonal match.
- 1 c. butter or margarine
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 t. vanilla
- 2 3/4 c. flour
- 2 t. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 2 t. cinnamon
2. Whisk or sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add to creamed until combined.
3. Place dough in refrigerator and let chill for at least 2 hours.
4. Roll about 1 t. of dough into a ball. Combine 1/3 c. sugar with cinnamon. Roll dough in cinnamon sugar until covered.
5. Place dough on cookie sheets, flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass, and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until edges are very lightly browned.
To make the ice cream sandwiches, put a scoop of semi-softened egg nog ice cream onto the bottom of 1 cookie and top with another. If you want to firm the ice cream a bit, put the sandwich in the freezer for a few minutes. Otherwise, if you're like me and can't wait for that, just take a bite!
