Coconut Almond Ice Cream Sandwiches

Sometimes the only thing that can make a cookie better is ice cream and another cookie.

Coconut Almond Ice Cream Sandwiches
2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 C white sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 Tbsp Nutiva Coconut Mana (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C white chocolate chips
1/2 C chopped, roasted almonds
5 oz sweetened shaved coconut
ice cream*

   Cream butter, coconut mana, and sugars together.  Incorporate eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla
   Add 1 C flour, baking soda and salt.  Gently work into butter mixture.
   Add second C of flour.  When it is about halfway incorporated, add coconut, white chocolate, and almonds.  Mix until flour is fully worked into mixture.
   Make a heaping Tbsp into a 1 1/2 in disk.  Place about 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
   Bake at 350 deg F for 8-10 minutes.
   Cool.  Makes about 2 dozen.  (If I am not making them into sandwiches, I only do about 2 tsp per cookie; this will make about 3 dozen.)
   Take ice cream that has been slightly softened (leave out about 15 min.) and place 3 oz scoop on a cookie.  Put another cookie on top.  Wrap in plastic, freeze for at least 30 minutes.
   Makes ~12 ice cream sandwiches.

*I used a high quality vanilla, but use whatever flavor you like.  Dulce de leche, white chocolate, even coffee would be delicious;  just stay away from ice cream with stuff in it.
