Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches - Tuesdays with Dorie

Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Jessica of Domestic Deep Thought of the Day chose Coffee Ice Cream Tart on pages 358 and 359 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Um, I did an interpretation and came up with Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches
I made 1/4 of the tart shell recipe and baked them up as cut-out cookies. I skipped the coating of chocolate that goes at the base of the tart shell. I really wanted coffee ice cream, but my store was all out. I was getting those $1.50 Haagen Daz cups of ice cream...just enough to be dangerous and fill these sandwiches. Dorie's recipe blends the ice cream with liquor or extract and nuts...I went with straight ice cream for my little guys.

Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches 
My friend Jun purchased these beautiful dishes during her honeymoon in Japan. Your friends know you well when they say, "I thought you could put a cookie on them on the blog!" My international collection of ceramic props begins. Thanks Jun!!!

Check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers and see their creations!

This is brilliant! I bet those were good cookies! I didn't make this week's recipe since I was out of town, and seeing these make me want to make them right away.

What a great friend, classy dishes for sure. I like your idea. I described this tart as an open-faced ice cream sandwich!

Ice cream sandwiches are the perfect variation for this recipe, maybe even better than the original!

What a cute sentiment, you friend, I often feel the same about the mr. he finds various props for me and the studio.. it makes me feel super special. Ice sands.. what's not to love about this.. I wish it was a bit warmer here though.
