Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Featuring my thick and nuggy Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookies, these ice cream sandwiches are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.  If you've ever had the Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich at Disneyland , you are going to LOVE these!  These big and bold chocolate chip cookies are based on a recipe from my culinary school studies at Auguste Escoffier, but with a few modifications to give them that Jennuine touch.  They make the perfectas book for a fat slice of real vanilla bean ice cream.  And those mini chips?  You just gotta have that extra cronch! Thank goodness this recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, otherwise I would be eating them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  This way, my big family can help save me from my inner child diet-saboteur.   Print With Image Without Image Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches Yield: 8 Author: Jenn Erickson Loaded with chocolate chips and buttery, brown-sugary vanilla flavor, these mall-sized cookies form a perfect partnership with a


Did you know that you can make those fancy little parchment cupcake/muffin liners that you see in fancy French bakeries quite easily at home?

Peaches and Little Lu are here to show you how. Peaches and Lu were passed on to me by my grandmother, Catharine. Catharine wasn't known for her cooking, but what she did give to me, besides Peaches and Lu, is an appreciation for things from yesteryear. She was a scrapbooker, a collector, and inspired my nostalgia for family history and ephemera.

So, without further ado, we give you:


Step 1: Cut Parchment Paper (available in grocery and craft stores) in to 5.5" squares

Step 2: Lay parchment square evenly over cupcake opening on your cupcake pan

Step 3: Using a drinking glass or jar, the same diameter as the cupcake opening, gently press to mold parchment to pan. (note: "Has this glass gotten smaller?" Peaches regrets eating that extra cruller and forgoing her AM Yoga class)

Step 4: Remove glass, crimp any weak folds in the parchment, fill with batter and bake
