Coconut Almond Ice Cream Sandwiches
2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 C white sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
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
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.
