Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches


½ cup unsalted butter, softened

½ cup light brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1½ tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp sea salt

1 Tbsp buttermilk

1⅓ cup all-purpose flour

½ tsp cornstarch

2½ Tbsp cocoa powder

2-3 tsp red gel food coloring

1 cup white chocolate chips

Vanilla ice cream

For the Cookies

Beat butter with a mixer 1 minute, then add brown sugar, granulated sugar and beat until well combined.

Beat in egg, vanilla, salt and buttermilk, then add wet ingredients and food coloring and mix, then set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cornstarch and cocoa powder, then slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients.

If the dough is not as red as you like, add more food coloring.

Keep a few chocolate chips aside and place on top of each cookie before baking.

Add white chocolate chips and stir until combined.

Chill the dough 30 minutes, then preheat oven to 350 while dough is chilling.

For this recipe you need a heart shaped silicone mold.

Use a 1/8 cup cookie scoop to make sure each cookie should weigh the same.

Press the dough into a flat layer in the silicone mold.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until slightly soft to the touch but not gooey touch method is necessary for determining "doneness.").

Assembling the Ice Cream Sandwiches

The cookies need to cool completely before removing them from the silicone mold. I

If you try to remove them before they cool completely, they will crumble and fall apart.

It will take 30 to 45 minutes for the cookies to cool completely.

The vanilla ice cream is shaped in the same way as the cookies.

Clean the mold before putting the ice cream in or the ice cream will be red.

Add a generous amount of ice cream in each cavity.

Press ice cream into an even layer and place in the freezer to freeze completely (1 hour).

If the layer of ice cream is too thin, it will break apart when removing from the mold.

To finish the sandwich, place one cookie on the bottom, ice cream in the middle and top with a cookie.

If the ice cream has melted too much during assembly, you can put it back in the fridge. Enjoy!
