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.

The Party Dip Your Guests will Flip For -- Warm Pimento Cheese Dip

This Christmas, we decided to change things up in the dinner department with a completely  Southern-inspired menu:

Warm Pimento Cheese Dip Marcus Samuelsson's Southern Fried Chicken Cheddar Biscuits Jambalaya with Louisiana Hot Links Macaroni and Cheese Casserole Yukon Gold Whipped Pototaoes Potlikker (Collard) Greens with Pork Jowl Bacon Classic Chess Pie Banana Pudding
It was marvelous!  I've hyperlinked the recipes we used in the menu above -- all very highly recommended.
Here is our recipe for Warm Pimento Cheese Dip  -- our riff on a Southern classic.  We warmed up this traditionally cold cheese dip and got it all gooey and melty.  Serve it like a fondue with chunks of  French bread, or with tortilla chips like Queso dip.
