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.

Hoecakes ~ Make George Washington's Favorite Breakfast for Presidents' Day


Sharing a family tradition~
HOECAKES
(George Washington's favorite breakfast)

HOE....cakes?  Indeed, these delicious little cornmeal-based pancakes were a favorite of farmhands and statesmen alike back in George's time.  They got their unusual name from the way they were originally prepared.   


Back in our nation's more agrarian days, field hands (for lack of a decent frying pan) would remove the blade from their hoe and use it like a griddle over an open fire. Back in George's day, the hoes used in the fields were much larger and flatter than the streamlined models we use for today's home gardening.  Hoecakes were served both for  breakfast, like pancakes, and as an accompaniment to a savory meal.  


Today, we make our hoecakes on a griddle.  In fact, every year I enjoy bringing a griddle in to my daughter's classroom to make hoecakes for the whole class!
