There are some people in my life, besides myself, who are obsessed with the fact that I’m single and have been for quite some time now. Some time exactly would be about four years. My stepmother though; now she takes the cake. Every time there is even a mention of a guy in my life, she wants to know every detail. Last time I saw her, she suggested that if perhaps I would just manifest the “perfect man”, then maybe he would pop into my life. But you see, my head is way to full of other things, like to do lists, my personal accounting (or lack thereof, really), and ice cream recipes I want to try. But I decided to try her little technique anyway…but not for a man; for an ice cream machine

I’ve been really thinking about buying one for the last couple of months, but other things, like life, keep getting in the way of it. So I kept manifesting and manifesting and nothing!But last Tuesday my friends, I do believe the planets were aligned perfectly and the Gods were smiling down upon me, because my friend actually brought me one. Can you believe it? I couldn’t either. It just so happens that he had a brand new Cuisineart Ice Cream Maker lying around. Lucky me. I guess all that manifesting worked.
As you can plainly see I’m pretty obsessive. I tend to eat the same thing over and over ’til I can’t possibly look at it anymore. The same goes for my baking habits. I’ve been making ice cream obsessively for about a week now. My latest and greatest creation are these Peanut butter -chocolate ice cream sandwiches. They’re the perfect summertime treat, and hold up so well because they live in the freezer. The peanut butter cookies are perfectly crispy, chewy and tender all at the same time, and don’t get too hard, even when frozen. This chocolate ice cream recipe is my favorite of all the ones I’ve tried, and trust me, I’ve tried quite a few.

Peanut Butter Cookies

adapted from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook

Makes enough for 12 large sandwiches

Sift together:

  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cream:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter

Add:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Add in sifted dry ingredients until just mixed. Finish by hand to avoid over mixing. Scoop dough into 24 even balls using an ice cream scoop. Freeze until just frozen. Bake on parchment paper at 350 for 18-20 minutes, or until edges are crispy and the middle is still a little soft. Let cool completely.

Chocolate Ice Cream

adapted from James Foran

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 9 oz. 56% or higher good quality chocolate
  • 4oz. sugar
  • 8 egg yolks
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Caramelize the sugar until a medium amber color. Slowly add milk, being careful not to splash the hot sugar all over yourself. Whisk until sugar has dissolved. Bring milk to just under a boil, and temper yolks into the hot milk. To do this, ladle a little milk into the yolks, whisking constantly, and then add the yolk mixture into the hot milk. Using a wooden spoon, continue cooking until the milk is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add vanilla and salt. Add chocolate and whisk until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and chill over an ice bath. For best results, chill ice cream base over night before freezing according to your ice cream machine’s manufacturer’s instructions.

To assemble sandwiches: Place 1 large scoop on the back of a cookie, and top with another cookie. EAT IT!
