Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Beat margarine, sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, including chocolate.
  4. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to sugar mixture, beating until well combined.
  5. Cover the cookie mixture with foil and put in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill, or can be refrigerated for a minimum of 1 hour.
  6. Prepare round cookie shapes using 1 heaping T of mixture.
  7. The dough tends to be sticky so its easier to work with if one dips the T of the mixture into flour before forming into a round shape.
  8. Or alternately, flour one's hands before forming the required shape.
  9. Flatten each cookie into a 6-7cm circle.
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes until almost set.
  11. The cookies should be soft inside and out.
  12. Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
  13. The cookies can be frozen at this point and filled later if desired.
  14. Place a scoop of ice cream on flat side of 1 cookie, cover with second cookie and press lightly together.
  15. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  16. Freeze until firm in a tightly sealed plastic container.
  17. I often add my favourite ice cream which is a homemade vanilla/chocolate swirl with grated chocolate.
  18. YUM!
