Yesterday my husband and I did a mini marathon of Community. It’s been syndicated and will be airing on Comedy Central on Friday nights. Cool. Cool cool cool.
I realize that Community is not a show for everyone. The humor and pop culture references may go over your head. I admit, sometimes I don’t get all of them either. But, to me, it has a very similar feel to Futurama. The characters and episode plots can be over-the-top, fantastical, and down right ridiculous at times, but in the end, they still manage to hit you in your gut. Then you have all the feels.
If you ever need a little pick me up from all those feels, I recommend trying this ice cream sandwich.
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped macadamia nuts
- Ice Cream
- 1 ½ cups coffee ice cream
- In a medium bowl, add flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, and stir to combine. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add butter and sugars and beat with an electric mixer for a couple of minutes or until light and fluffy.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and beat to combine.
- Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix to combine.
- Fold in chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
- Refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Using a one-inch (diameter) ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- Remove from oven. Let cookies cool on the pan for a minute. Remove cookies from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
- Scoop 2 ½-3 tablespoons of ice cream onto the flat side of one cookie.
- Top with another cookie and lightly press together. Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream.
- Place sandwiches in the freezer for about 1-2 hours or until firm.
