ice-cream” (or your favorite flavor, see note)
Line a medium-sized, rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Gently twist open the crème filled chocolate cookies. Spoon a small scoop of “ice cream” onto each cookie and reattach the cookie tops.
Arrange in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Freeze for 1 hour, or until firm. Remove the cookies from the freezer and arrange on a pretty platter. Alternately, put 2 sandwiches on each of six to eight dessert plates and serve (see note).
Chef’s note: For a gluten-free option, use both certified gluten-free cookies and nondairy, gluten-free “ice-cream” in this recipe.
Chef’s note: Once the sandwiches are removed from the freezer, let them stand at room temperature for 2 to 3 minutes to soften up a bit before serving.
