Preparing Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches:

Step 1

When ready to make the sandwiches, cut the ice cream with a circle cookie cutter. Take one piece of cookie and place a piece of ice cream on the flat side of the cookie. Top with second cookie to make a sandwich. Roll sides of the sandwich in mini chocolate chips.

Step 2

Put the sandwiches in the freezer before serving.

Chef's Tip

The “pure salep” used in the homemade vanilla ice cream gives it an elastic and stretchy texture and increases its durability to warm temperatures. 

If you want to have a softer ice cream, remove the salep, but then, reduce the amount of milk from 4 cups (1 litre) to 2 cups (½ liter) and sugar from 150g to 100g, and add 4 egg yolks.

If you cannot find pure salep, you can replace it with tapioca starch or arrowroot powder.

Refrigerate the chocolate chip cookies for 1 hour before preparing the cookie sandwiches to make sure that the ice cream will not melt before you finish preparing them.
