This month I am hosting this month's #FoodieExtravaganza. I wrote: "Let's share recipes for ICE CREAM SANDWICHES. The cookies can be homemade, the ice cream can be homemade, or you can just share your favorite combination of assembling pre-made ingredients. The sky's the limit. " Here's the list of our ice cream sandwich creations...


Mostly Plant-Based Chocolate Chip 
Cashewmilk Sandwiches

I initally had a very different recipe planned, but my husband decided to go plant-based at the beginning of July. That is a story for another day and has more to do with health choices than about animal treatment. So, when I went to make these, I needed to make the cookies without butter and eggs; I also used a cashewmilk 'ice cream.' But these are still 'mostly' plant-based because I used whatever chocolate chips I had in the cabinet...and those may have included some dairy.

Ingredients makes one dozen sandwiches

  • 1/2 cup plant-based butter, at room temp (I have found that we like Country Crock's avocado oil butter)
  • 2/3 cup organic dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plant-based milk (I used oatmilk)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (again, these weren't plant-based)
  • plant-based 'ice cream' (I used SO Delicious Creamy Chocolate Cashewmilk)
  • Also needed: baking sheets, parchment paper, scoop


 Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until lightened and fluffy. Add in pure vanilla extract and beat for another minute or two. Fold in the flour in batches until just moistened. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop rounded scoops of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet. Keep them about 2 inches apart as these cookies flatten as they bake. I made approximately 24 cookies.


Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on sheets for 3 to 4 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.

While the cookies cool, remove the ice cream from the freezer and let soften.


To assemble scoop ice cream onto the bottom side of a cooled cookie. Gently press another bottom side onto the scoop. Press lightly to flatten the scoop. Enjoy immediately!

Next month we'll be celebrating recipes with honey for National Honey Day with Rebekah of Making Miracles at the lead. Stay tuned...

  3. My daughter is vegan since 3 years, since then she is has glowing skin and keeps very good health. It's good to hear your hubby is going plant based for health reasons, sure, it's an effort to cook for vegan's. Love this plant based recipe will try it for my daughter. Thanks you for hosting this month event!

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
