These cookie dough ice cream sandwiches are SO good; the perfect dessert to curl up by the fire with on a fall night. But beware...they are very rich - next time around I will definitely roll out my 'dough' to be a bit thinner and add more ice cream into the mix, or cut the serving sizes to be a touch smaller. But overall, they're such a yummy treat I wanted to share. Read on for the recipe, and I hope you have as much fun making these as I did!

INGREDIENTS
1 c. (2 sticks) melted butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk (preferably whole or 2%)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour*
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
3 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened

DIRECTIONS
Line a large baking sheet with Saran Wrap, leaving overhang on sides. In a large bowl, stir together melted butter, both sugars, milk, and vanilla until combined. Stir in flour and salt, then fold in chocolate chips.  Press cookie dough into prepared baking sheet, evening it out as much as possible!


Top with a second piece of parchment and freeze until firm, 1 hour.  Remove cookie dough from pan and place on a cutting board. Slice dough down the center. Scoop ice cream on one half, then gently place other half of cookie dough on top. Transfer back to pan and freeze at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

Slice into sandwiches and serve!

Summer in the City

Friday, 10 July 2020

What a weird summer, am I right? But it’s also been a wonderful summer. Probably one of the best, actually. With everything being closed, I’ve spent more time than ever with the people that mean the most to me. So many beach days, backyard hangouts and super deep conversations.

I never imagined driving around the city for fun. For real, there’s been no traffic in NYC – it’s been magical to roam around this crazy place, music blasting, 90 degrees out – and it’s completely empty. I will never forget this summer.


Add on the craziness of work and trying to keep up with this blog, I almost don’t have any free time left!  But in the free time that I do have… I have done a bunch of online shopping (ha!) and wanted to link to some of my favorite summer outfits that I’ve been wearing in the city lately.

How gorg is the view from my roof in Brooklyn!?

I’m totally addicted to this Beyond Yoga sports bra and have been wearing them as tops with shorts – they are so soft and comfy. I got it in light blue a few months ago but now I really want the grey one! Free People also has a ton of ribbed tanks and I have this one in 4 different colors - it's so comfortable, you don't need to wear a bra under it and I have just lived in it all summer long.


Randomly, Abercrombie has the bessssst summer dresses. I feel like I’m 15 but I am not even embarrassed – their dresses and skirts are so comfy. I legit can’t remember the last time I wore pants.


And I’m still obsessed with Triangl for all my bathing suits (like the green one at the top of this post), AND Miss Selfridge also has super cute floral dresses, like this one I'm wearing below!


Anyways… this blog will hopefully go back to being a travel-ish blog soon!

Next stop Canada… and then… Berlin!

Wie kann ich sonst mein Deutsch üben?

Tschüssi.
