Ice cream sandwiches?

Does anyone have a good cookie recipe to make ice cream sandwiches? I would think it would have to be a pretty stiff cookie, but also somewhat chewy? Martha had a recipe but it looked thin and crispy, would prefer something more substantial. Thanks!
Hi - I make them with the oatmeal cookies on the Quaker Old Fashioned lid - add choc chips or peanut butter chips or nuts or whatever you like. I buy the icecream blocks, instead of tubs, and slice the ice cream to the thickness I want, then cut out rounds with a glass that's about the same size as the cookies - that way I don't have to squeeze the ice cream to get it to go to the edges. Then I have lots of ice cream "bits" to refreeze, and indulge in whenever I want, because I am "preventing waste" by using them up. Ha ha! Best wishes and enjoy!
Costco cookies make great ice cream sandwiches. Just the right size and thickness and four flavors in the packages - YUM!
The chocolate brownie cookies from Claudia Fleming's The Last Course is a good cookie for ice cream sandwiches. The recipe is available at Epicurious. The batter does require a full 15 minutes of beating.
You could make brownies, but spread them out in a larger pan to make them thinner. Ben and Jerry's used to make excellent Brownie Ice Cream sandwiches.
We made some adult ice cream sandwiches that used a recipe of chocolate cookie that we froze before assembling. Sandwiched them with vanilla gelato, they made my mother in law cry!
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6(1 ounce)squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
2(1 ounce)squares unsweetened chocolate
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set
Over a double boiler, melt semi-sweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and butter; stirring occasionally.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar for 6 minutes with an electric mixer. Temper the egg mixture with the chocolate mixture and once tempered put in the rest of the chocolate mixture and beat it for 1 more minute.
Fold the sifted ingredients into the chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula.
Cover the dough and chill for half an hour to an hour.
Grease your cookie sheets.
Drop cookies by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared
cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cookies cool completely before removing from cookie sheets.
Growing up in SE Asia, a traditional ice cream sandwich would use 2 slices of white bread for the sandwich, or 2 thin crsipy wafers (similar to the wafer cone).
I've often used snickerdoodles that I cook just a tad longer in the oven to dry them out a bit and make them stiffer.
One of my friends (who doesn't like baking) uses those thin Famous Chocolate Wafers that you can buy in almost any grocery store. Those work really well also.
