6 ice cream sandwiches

  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for flouring hands
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups coffee ice cream, softened slightly
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together the brown sugar, melted butter and corn syrup in a large bowl until smooth. Add the vanilla and egg and whisk until combined. Add the flour mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until just incorporated. The dough will be quite loose; refrigerate for 15 minutes to let it firm up a little.

  • Position 2 oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees F.

  • Scoop out 12 mounds of dough, about 2 scant tablespoons each, and place them at least 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. (The cookies will spread a lot during baking.) Lightly flour your hands and press the dough out until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle each cookie with some cinnamon sugar, using all of it.

  • Bake the cookies, switching the sheets about halfway through the baking time, until lightly browned at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the cookies rest on the sheets for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a rack to cool completely, about 20 minutes.

  • To assemble: Turn 6 cookies upside-down on a cutting board. Scoop about 1/3 cup of the ice cream onto each cookie and spread it with a spoon or butter knife to the edges of the cookies. Top each with a second cookie, and press down gently to adhere. Serve the ice cream sandwiches right away, or put them in the freezer to harden for about 1 hour, then wrap and freeze for up to 2 weeks.
