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.

Holiday Entertaining with Stuffed Brie -- 4 Recipes


I love brie!
Do you love brie?

Many years ago, when I was a student in Berkeley, I got hooked on an amazing stuffed brie from The Cheese Board -- a wedge of brie stuffed with house-made pesto and topped with sundried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts.  When I moved back to the Monterey Peninsula, I went through withdrawls, so I started to make my own.


I love bringing stuffed brie to potluck parties.  It's very simple to make and can be prepared weeks in advance.  During the holidays, I always like to keep a few in the refrigerator for last-minute entertaining, or to bring as a hostess gift with a nice olive wood cheese board.

 

Over the years I've shared a few of my stuffed brie recipes here at Rook No. 17.  With the holidays upon us, I figured it was a good time to share them in a single collection.  

Which one will you try?

You can use any type of jam or fruit compote you wish for this recipe.  In this photo, I used a fig jam and drizzled the baked brie with balsamic vinegar.  In the recipe, I used an easy homemade cranberry compote.
