|One of our favorite desserts is a simple ice cream sandwich, made by layering ice cream between two great cookies. On the rustic side are chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, or chocolate cookies with mint ice cream. But the gourmet side of us loves Tiny Trapeze graham crackers with ginger ice cream (Reed’s Ginger Ice Cream is wicked). The molasses clove cookies from Dancing Deer with vanilla ice cream are another favorite. Don’t hesitate to be creative: Try snickerdoodle cookies with rum raisin ice cream or lemon cookies with berry ice cream. Give your guests two or three small ice cream sandwiches with different flavors rather than one jumbo sandwich. The best thing is, with gourmet cookies perpetually on hand and ice cream in the freezer, you can turn out this simple yet exciting treat at the drop of a hat.|
