What to serve with Salted Caramel Ice Cream?

I'm having some family visit this weekend, and I made Chow's Salted Caramel Ice Cream for dessert one night. It is delicious, but I feel like I should have something with it - a simple cookie, maybe - nothing fancy. Something crunchy to go with the smooth, creamy ice cream. But I can't decide what flavor would go best.

I was thinking a simple chocolate cookie, or a shortbread? What would you do?

  1. What about an almond lace cookie?

    Or if you want to go the chocolate route, along those lines, a florentine.

    I'd also like something simple like a madeleine or macaron (not macaroon).

    1. i vote for chocolate - shortbread, or the florentines chowser suggested, or chocolate tuiles, or brownies...or make ice cream sandwiches with it using chocolate cookies.

      1. Dark chocolate crackle cookies. Yum.

        1. For a simple chocolate cookie, these sound good:

          I've made cookies like these previously (variation on the Payard flourless chocolate cookie) and they were great. I think nice, dark chocolate cookie would be a lovely pairing. I also kinda want to make these again myself. :)

          1. My vote would be shortbread. And maybe some candied bacon...
