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

Image
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.

Gingerbread Delights & Hodgson Mill $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway
A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 50!

A page from my Great Grandmother's hand-written cookbook.

----------------------------------------

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 50!

To celebrate, everyone who links up and comments this week will be entered in a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Hodgson Mill!
(details below)


----------------------------------------


We may no longer bake with lard or molasses by the pint like my Great Grandma Maggie did, but one thing hasn't changed:  Using a high quality flour makes all the difference in your baked goods. I recently had the opportunity to sample some of the flours from Hodgson Mill, a family owned business that's been grinding grain since 1882!  I can honestly say their wheat flour is the best I've ever baked with.
I'll be sharing my recipe for Cranberry Upside-down Babycakes, using Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat flour on Friday, but in the meantime,   Hodgson Mill is generously giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky "A Little Birdie Told Me..." participant.  You can spend it in their online store where you'll find flours & meals, pastas, cereals, mixes, gifts and even some gluten-free products!

GIVEAWAY!
To enter:  Simply link-up (regular party rules apply) and leave a comment telling me what you're baking this month. 

I'll use Random.org to select a winner when the linky closes at 8:00 PM PST on the 14th
