    Dear bon appétit fans, I made this recipe and it turned into a sloppy mess because I don’t believe Claire when she said the ice cream needs to stay in the fridge for eight hours before construction. Next time, I’ll probably do it overnight. Lesson of the day: listen to Claire.

    Claire instead of storing that cookie dough in plastic wrap. You should’ve stored it in gallon bags. Then instead of using parchment paper to roll it out in between. You could’ve just rolled it inside of the airless plastic bag. Then cut it away bag. Then you would’ve had a perfect square to cut your cookies from.

    I'm a baker for a local brewery and we have ice cream sandwiches as our staple dessert for this menu! So happy to have found this, definitely gonna try this soon! I've done a bunch of fun weird combinations! Traditional chocolate & vanilla but I salted the cookies, banana bread with butter pecan, peanutbutter cookies with chocolate icecream, rice crispy treats with Oreo icecream, cinnamon cookies with pistachio almond, and blueberry mini waffles with strawberry icecream! So many tasty combinations *-*

    Don’t worry Brad I had a clubhouse too but it was not that fancy and no one ever used it 🤣 Literally had the exact same carpet that it did when it first started in the 70’s (you read that right- that place up until 2019 had the SAME CARPET 🤢)
    Anyway that looked amazing Claire!

    Sooo... once upon a time, the hubby worked for Schwann's food distributor and they sold A LOT of ice cream products. Up until then I, like everyone else, thought Good Humor (with the softer chocolate cookie) set the standard. WRONG!! Their freshly made, straight from the mega deep freezer, still crispy, chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches were life altering. I was forever ruined.

      @Stephan van Deventer He said it's like"natural defense" against food.. But actually smelling the food helps you taste it better and there's a scientific fact about this. In fact, most "food experts" smell the food before they taste them. Kinda like why when you have a flu, you can't really taste your food.

      Chris can really be described as the Sheldon Cooper of the BA kitchen, and why must he always have to stick his nose into food before he eats it? It's a taste and not a sniff test.

      Yeah, it would be great to visit the Good Humor factory and buy them freshly made. I bet they are really good instead of buying them from the store where they could be a week old already.
