I had a girlfriend that was giving a birthday party for her five year old. She made chocolate chips cookies, but baked them in muffin tins. She waited until they cooled down before removing them from the tin. Then she took a scoop of ice cream and put one scoop in each cookie. She deliberately baked the cookies so that when cooled, they were crisp. Hmmm... I should give that a try. Sounds like the perfect holiday dessert. Not too filling and who doesn't love ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. I don't know why I haven't tried this before.

I have three different size dashers for the cookies. Use the large one for the cookie and a smaller one for the ice cream. I would want the cookies to be thick enough to stand up to the ice cream.

I guess you could just make chocolate chip cookie bars and scoop ice cream on them.

Ok. So I made the cookies using the Land O Lakes recipe. Good news first. There are only 4 left. They were amazing. Bad news. The dough was the consistency of Play Dough. I lost one of my two cheap-o-matic hand mixers. I took them out at 12 minutes. I don't have a cooling rack but they did ok on plates.

Cookie doughs can be problematic for hand mixers. Too big of a batch in a stand mixer can be a problem too. I mix them by hand or make smaller batches in the mixer.

On the rare occasion that I bake cookies, I use the hand mixer just to cream the softened butter and sugar. Then I mix the rest by hand.

How much of a necessity is the cooling rack? I didn't have one but I transferred directly to the plate and it seemed fine

ISO help/tips/advice making cookies

You can recruit your broiler pan tray, a dehydrator tray, or even a laundry rack as a cooling rack. It seems to help with texture.
