Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches
When I offered to make dinner for my parents for their 47th anniversary this week, my mom requested fish, cookies, and ice cream. And since I was asking D to make the cookies, he suggested putting together the last two requests. D cautiously asked, "Would you be okay if I made ice cream sandwiches for Nonno and Nonna? It won't be fancy, but it will be delicious." I'm all for delicious...no need for fancy. 

Ingredients 
makes approximately 3 dozen cookies or 18 ice cream sandwiches

Snickerdoodles
  • 1 C softened butter
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar + 4 T for rolling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 

Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • ice cream (D used vanilla and espresso chocolate cookies crumble)
  • Also needed: scoop
Procedure

Snickerdoodles
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.

In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg and pure vanilla.


Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands.


Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.


Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. But the softer cookies were easier to assemble into ice cream sandwiches.


Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 to 3 minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Once you're ready to assemble...


Ice Cream Sandwiches
Use a scoop to place a small bit of ice cream (he used about 1 T for a 1-1/2" cookie) on the flat side of one cookie. Place the flat side of another cookie on top of the ice cream and gently press them together until the ice cream comes to the edge of the two cookies.


Work quickly and serve immediately!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
