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

Apple Pie Sundaes in Pie Crust Bowls

Apple butter is wonderful on biscuits, warm toast and buttery scones. But have you tried it on vanilla ice cream? When served in a pie crust bowl, you have an elegantly deconstructed apple pie! A little sprinkle of flaky sea salt puts this simple, yet sophisticated dessert over the top. 

Apple Pie Sundaes in Pie Crust Bowls

  • Premium Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
  • Overnight Apple Butter with Bourbon & Vanilla Bean (recipe HERE) or your own
  • Store bought or homemade pie crust
  • Regular size muffin tin
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Flaky sea salt (like Fleur de Sel)

To make the pie crust bowls:

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.   Roll pie dough out to 1/8" thick.  Use the rim of a drinking glass or biscuit cutter to cut into 3/5" - 4" rounds.

2.  Flip muffin tin over.  Form dough circles around each muffin cup.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake for 7-8 minutes, until golden brown.

3. Remove crusts from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.

To make the sundaes:

Place a large scoop of vanilla ice cream inside the pie crust bowl.  Top with apple butter.  Sprinkle with just a pinch of sea salt.
