Hi everybody! I have really missed the forum and have not been around much.
My grandmother used to make grasshopper pie when I was a kid. It was a freezer/icebox pie with an oreo cookie crust and I am sure the filling had creme de menthe.
I loved it, and since I had all the components for ice cream (and was really in a groove from churning batch after batch for a party - by the way, homemade ice cream is a BAD IDEA FOR A LARGE PARTY, mark my words) and a backyard full of wild mint, I thought of re-creating that pie in sandwich form.
I know that Rose has a fabulous cake recipe (German chocolate) for an ice cream cake (and it’s coming up in the bake along) but I really wanted to try ice cream sandwiches with a chocolate cookie to go with my fresh mint ice cream.
My ice cream base is in the fridge, so now I just need to make some dark chocolate cookies. Does anyone have a recipe they recommend?
I have a fabulous recipe for oatmeal cookies (made with oil, so they stay softer when frozen) as a back-up if this doesn’t work.
